Today is the Summer Solstice. In Seattle that means almost sixteen hours of daylight. This morning the sun came up at 5:11 am, and it won’t be setting until 9:10 pm tonight. This is our reward for having suffered through those long nights of winter when the sun sets at four-thirty in the afternoon.
This past weekend Edmonds welcomed summer with its annual arts festival, a celebration that’s been going on since 1957. Picasso Lane, shown above, is one of five long “streets” on the grass. There were more crafts and juried art inside the Frances Anderson Cultural Center and on the deck and patio of the library.
In the 240 artists booths, artists and craftsmen from all over the country display their wares. This woman sells beautiful pearl jewelry.

Lots of good music at the outdoor amphitheater
