Summer on Thursday

Astronomical summer will officially begin this Thursday, June 20. I hear that it will hot and humid around Philadelphia and South Jersey -- a perfect day for the beach.

It should also be good weather to look for interesting insects, like this Golden Northern Bumblebee -- the plushy teddy bear of bees, and my personal favorite. Click to enlarge.

And here's a thought to remember from John Lubbock, who said: "Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time."
