Whitehurst Album: Willis+ Flowers for a Midsummer day

Click on headline for photo(s) as added during the day

Sharon Whitehurst chronicled another Song of the South Day in Old Gradyville on June 21, 2011, the first day of summer, the day of the summer solstice."No pagan festivities here," she notes, "although I always note the solstice and the official start of a new season. Poppies [from heirloom seed sown in late February] and roses opened to greet the morning," and she had this comment on the underappreciated Willis: "The ever-lurking Willis said he was merely smelling the flowers, not casting an evil eye on the hummingbirds."

He's pleading for a modicum of approval, above, when this photo was taken on the day of the summer solstice, June 21, 2011.
