Summer Solstice Marks Beginning Of Fun In Apple Valley-Rosemount - Apple Valley, MN Patch
It was aligned with the sunrise and sunset on the solstice, and is accessible only in the summer months. Similar wheels have been found in South Dakota, Montana and parts of Canada. Another ceremonial ritual is the Sundance, originated by the Sioux tribe in the western and northwestern U.S., because it was believed the sun was a manifestation of the Great Spirit. The four-day celebration of singing, dancing, drumming, prayer and meditation, and skin piercing concluded with a ceremonial felling of a tree, symbolic of the connection between the heavens and Earth. 2. Thousands will gather at Stonehenge, a Neolithic megalith monument in the south of England, to celebrate the summer solstice. Stonehenge, built around 2500 B.C., lines up perfectly with both the summer and winter solstices. There are some conspiracy theories about the formation of rocks — including that Stonehenge was built as a landing zone for alien aircraft, according to Popular Mechanics. A more believable explanation is that Stonehenge was built as an ancient calendar to mark the passing of time. 3. Not all cultures called June 21 the summer solstice and it meant different things to different people. According to History.com, in northern Europe, the longest day of the year was known as Midsummer, while Wiccans and other Negopagan groups called it Litha, and some Christian churches called it St. John's Day in commemoration of the birth of John the Baptist. On ancient Greek calendars, the summer solstice and the beginning of a new year coincided, and it also marked the one-month countdown to the opening of the Olympic games. 4. The summer solstice is steeped in pagan folklore and superstition. According to some accounts, people wore protective garlands of herbs and flowers to ward off evil spirits that appear on the summer solstice. Among the most powerful, according to History.com, was "chase devil," known today as St. John's Wort because of its association with St. John's Day. Lore also holds that bonfires on Midsummer, as the solstice was known among northern Europeans, would banish demons and evil spirits and lead young maidens to their future husbands. Also, the ashes from a summer solstice bonfires not only protected people against misfortune, but also carried the promise of a bountiful harvest. 5. June 21 marks the beginning of winter in the Southern Hemisphere. The forecast high temperature for the first day of winter in Esperanza, located on the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula (the coldest place on Earth), is 8 degrees, with a low of minus 3. However, at the height of summer ... Jun 22, 2019
Door to Nature: Thimbleberry Flowers and Fruit - Door County Pulse
It actually ranges from the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, across the upper Great Lakes region to southern Alaska, into the Black Hills of South Dakota and south to the mountains of Mexico, Arizona and California.
There is little doubt in my mind that this sought-after fruit is at its very best in lands bordering the upper Great Lakes. The growing conditions in northeastern Wisconsin – always near the cool Lake Michigan shore, but away from the water’s edge – are similar to those encountered at a specific altitude on the wooded mountain slopes of the West.
Perhaps no plant genus – other than the Crataegus (thornapple) genus – is in such a chaotic condition as the Rubus when it comes to Latin names and identities. The genus has 250 to 700 species!
The outstanding thimbleberry is one of the well-proven and studied species. One place to admire them is along the roads bordering Lake Michigan northeast of Sturgeon Bay. Their large, five-petaled blossoms remind me of a single white rose set against handsome, deep-green leaves that are very slightly tacky to the touch and impart a clean, subtle perfume to the surrounding air. This would be my idea for a can of air freshener: clean, invigorating, but not overpowering or artificial.
What a pleasure it is to carefully walk through a patch of thimbleberries as you pick the fruit: no thorns! You don’t have to wear a suit of armor as when picking blackberries, when you earn every berry plucked off those thorny canes.
Prepare yourself for some slow pail-filling when you go in search of thimbleberries. Then line your pail with several of the huge plant leaves to cushion the delicate fruit as you put it into the container. Walk slowly and carefully because the huge, dense foliage tends to hide fallen logs.
I remember going to pick some thimbleberries one mid-morning during the dry summer of 1976. I was going through the rocky south point of Baileys Harbor with a plastic ice cream pail and had picked enough berries to cover its bottom when I looked at my watch. Holy cow! It was time to get home to make Roy his lunch. I hastened back to my car, and as I did, I tripped over a fallen tree, spilling all of my fruit onto the rough, rocky ground. That was it for my thimbleberry harvest that summer.
Thimbleberries tend to flatten when picked, and it’s important to pick them clean because it’s very dif... Aug 25, 2017

Wonderful World of Native Plants – Easter flowers
They are valued as ornamentals because of their loveliness – even after drying. It is the state flower of South Dakota, the county flower for a couple of counties in England and the provincial flower of Manitoba, Canada. These are clearly beloved flowers.It also has gone through a series of disputed nomenclatures. Googling this plant family will pull up Anemone as a genus name, along with the more common name, Pulsatilla. Here in the Taos area, Pulsatilla patens subspecies multifida of the Ranunculaceae (buttercup) family are known as high-elevation, mountain meadow flowers that like partial shade and cool, moist areas. They grow 6 to 12 inches tall and their leaves have silky hairs. They have colored sepals as opposed to petals and come in an Easter-like palette of pastel colors, mostly blues and white.Despite their innocent Easter appearance, these can be toxic plants, so they are best viewed in their natural environment or dried. Nonetheless, Pulsatilla has long been used as a homeopathic remedy after drying, then pulverizing and turning it into pill or potion. Among other things, it has been used for anemia, sties in the eye, mucus, ear problems and headaches.Easter daisy, or Townsendia exscapa, is another perfect flower for the season. This, too, is a high-elevation flower growing in pinelands. These white, tinged with pink or lavender, flowers bloom close to the ground, g... (taosnews)Feb 3, 2017
With suffragist sashes and flower crowns, Philly women to vote with their feet in march on Washington
New Mexico, a 56-hour round trip. At least one person is driving from South Dakota.
Marchers say they're demonstrating for equal pay, religious freedom, family leave, diversity, civil rights, political involvement, female veterans, abortion rights, immigrants, gays, gun safety, press freedom, minorities, the disabled, the poor and victims of sexual assault.
"It does make it more complex in terms of honing into specific issues," said Pennsylvania co-organizer Heidi Solomon-Orlick, of Berks County. "In some ways it's what makes this march historic and unique."
She cites three core issues, important to women regardless of their political views: Health care. Fair pay. Safety.
She and other leaders insist the march is not anti-Trump, even though many of its causes fit squarely within the Democratic Party framework.
Would there be a Woman's March if Hillary Clinton had won?
"I don't know," said Pennsylvania co-organizer Shawna Knipper, of Lehigh County. "Would it have been needed? I think so. We've never reached the levels of equality we should have reached."
Feminist author Gloria Steinem and civil-rights icon Harry Belafonte are honorary co-chairs, and partners include Planned Parenthood, Greenpeace, and the National Organization for Women. Comedian Amy Schumer, pop star Katy Perry, and actress Zendaya are among the celebrities expected to turn out.
"We want to ensure that this country knows women are not happy," march co-founder Tamika Mallory told NPR. "And when we get angry, change happens."
But not all women are unhappy.
The election showed the idea of women as a united, liberal-leaning voting bloc to be fiction. Among white women, 43 percent voted for Trump. Among white women without college degrees, it was 62 percent.
Kutztown nurse Siobhan Walsh-Bonis has been a Republican for nearly 40 years, proudly voting for presidential candidates from Reagan to McCain. She's going to the march.
She voted for Obama to help people get health care, she said, but was ready to back the GOP until the party nominated Trump, whose behavior she deemed a disgrace.
"There must be other Republicans who feel as I do," she said.
The Philadelphia march should draw about 9,700, according to responses on Facebook. New Jersey will host sister marches in Trenton and in Pompton Plains, northwest of Paterson. No march is planned in South Jersey.
"It's not protesting Donald Trump," said co-organizer Mariel Martin, who comes from a line of politically active South Philadelphia women. "It's about female empowerment. It costs $52 to ride on Kinslow's bus, and every seat has been sold.
"This is going to be something in 25 or 30 years that kids are going to be reading about in textbooks," she said. "We want to be clear, 'I stood up for what's right.'"
