In the upper Midwest, June is nature's full coming out party. The trees are budded out, flower gardens are exploding with growth and color, and the prairies and woodlands burst with the manifestations of the life force. In nature's chronology, June is akin to being a young adult, full of vigor and potential. As the northern hemisphere tilts toward the Summer Solstice, an abundance of sunlight bathes our corner of the planet. It's a time to immerse our senses in the natural world more than the human one. When we do so, we catalyze positive changes in brain chemistry and consciousness, enhancing our moods. Drink it in. 

“Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly.”                                                                                                                           Pablo Naruda
