60 Degrees North
Lea Gardens, West Shetland Mainland, was started in the early 1980s and now occupies two acres with 1500 different species from all over the world. It is planted to maintain all-year round interest and is famed, at least locally, for its shelter. An item in Shetland News puts its conditions of this December into context. The image below, from the Gardens, is an appropriate reminder that once today - with the fewest hours of daylight, especially at 60 degrees north - is over, then Summer Is Icumen In ... eventually.
