Summer time is here
Yes it’s summer
My time of year.’
-lyrics from the song ‘Summer’ by the great funk band War
A Brief Summer Solstice Note from Doug Draper, Niagara At Large
Posted June 21st, 2019, the first day of summer
This spring turned out to be kind of a drag, and was downright depressing at times with all of the rain and unseasonably cold temperatures. Almost the whole month of May and most of this June were so unspring like, I am looking across my backyard now at neighours who are finally able to get out in their gardens and put their tomato plants in.
Cheer up though. Or at least try to.
This Friday, June 21st at 11:54 a.m., it officially turned from spring to summer, and all over our region of Niagara, and across the border for our friends and neighbours in Buffalo, New York, the sun has been shining oh so brightly as we entered the new season and it has been warm enough to sit outside.
Or how about a nice long walk along a favourite beach?
Then there are all of those great summer songs, like one of my favourites by one of the best of the best old funk band called War. The song is called “Summer” and you can listen to it as we celebrate the first day of summer by clicking on the screen below.
