Our summer shopping list

THIS FRIDAY WILL BE THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER here in the northern hemisphere and WE COULDN’T BE MORE EXCITED. According to the BBC, “The summer solstice is the point in the year when Earth’s north pole tilts furthest toward the Sun. Technically, the solstice takes place at a specific point in time, which this year will be 4.54pm BST (11.54am EDT) on Friday, June 21, according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac … The solstice is the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere – as it has the most hours of sunlight. There will be 16 hours and 38 minutes of daylight in the UK, and the Sun will rise at 4.43am before setting at 9.21pm. This is because our Sun will appear at its highest in the northern sky, directly over the Tropic of Cancer.”

Summertime is our favourite time and we’re daydreaming of tan lines and a glass of wine on a breezy terrace, espadrilles and frills on little white dresses; palm trees and wicker and the flicker of candlelight on an August night…
