"Fly Away With Me..."

...this first day of Summer...out here in the "Old West".
The first day of Summer is earlier in western North America:
For the years 2009 and 2013,
people in the Mountain and Pacific time zones
and farther west greet the first day of summer a day earlier,
on June 20.
So when people ask what the first day of summer is,
it not only depends on the year
but on where you live.

A wonderful magic carpet on which to ride - perhaps into that sky you posted yesterday! And I learned something I didn't know about the first day of summer!

It has been summer here temperature-wise the past few days. When it gets into the 90's with 90%humidity you know it is summer. Love the magic carpet.

Lovely tangled magic carpet. Sweeps me up and flies me over the clouds below. So well done. Bravo.

Can I ride on your carpet? You could have used this for IF-floating. Perfect!!

Alex said...

Great stuff!!!! I am wondering why everyone just want to ride on the carpet...I wanna sleep on it! :) Those shapes will help to get my imagination soaring in no time to dreamland :)

from the looks of things, your magic carpet will NEVER unravel. :)

I didn't know that! I thought maybe they'd changed the date as I remembered it being on the 20th. Now I know it can be different depending. Nice little magic carpet. I like the quote too.
