A Sedona Garden of Summer Fun!

We just experienced the summer solstice, nature's ultimate high-five to the sun. With longer days and shorter nights, it's a time to embrace sun-kissed adventures and let the energy of the solstice ignite our spirits.

Ever wondered why the summer solstice is such a magical phenomenon? It's all because of the Earth's tilt. Our planet has a 23.5-degree tilt on its axis, and as it orbits around the sun, the Northern Hemisphere sways closer to those blazing rays during the summer solstice. Be prepared for more direct sunlight and the extra-long days that follow!

Here in Sedona, the long summer days nurture our natural gardens. Mother Nature plants and nourishes these summer gardens with succulents, desert willow, sycamore, alder and oak trees-all nestled among the magical red rock! Pure magic.

It’s time to enjoy a glorious summer filled with recreational opportunities, both indoors and out. May I recommend a few ideas?
