Happy Solstice - Sundays in My City

I love the solstice. I love what it represents and even though isn't not as dark here as it was in the Netherlands I'm still happy to celebrate the return of light.  There was a solstice celebration at the Conservatory at Druid Hill Park in Baltimore.

Inside the conservatory was a grand poinsettia display.


Outside were fires and music and a Winter Solstice Bonfire Resolution


Happy solstice!!

  1. Thanks for sharing your Solstice Celebration with us. I love poinsettias. I loved all the pictures, but I especially like the lastone of the fire.

  2. What an interesting celebration! Very beautiful and meaningful.

  3. I have never seen the solstice bonfire instructions. That's beautiful! I want to do that next year.
    Happy Holidays!

    1. I had never seen it before either but I love it!

  4. That's wonderful. I love love love this.

  5. (hm did my comment disappear?) In summation. I love the bonfire message and Australia doesn't seem to take any notice of the solstice at all (for example summer starts on December 1, Spring on September 1, and Winter on June 1...and Autumn on March 1).
