Had a quiet Solstice this year. I didn't originally think of this one as a Solstice photo, but when I was getting ready to add things and noticed the date, I realized how appropriate it was because these kinda look like ice crystals. This is actually a sort of accidental science experiment! I had dissolved some epsom salts in warm water to make a spray with, but not all of it fit in the bottle. I left the pan on the stove with a thin layer of liquid in it and forgot about it. When the water had evaporated, this is what was left! They were really quite pretty!
I made special foods to represent the light and dark half of the year as well, as I have done in the past, but didn't get any pictures this year.
