Nurturing Foundations, Flourishing With God





Summer solstice is the 21st when it is the longest day and

shortest night.


Did you know that in June:


Queen bees and her workers fly to start a new colony. They start to cluster on

a branch while scouts look for a suitable site for a hive.

Stag beetles fight each other for the right to might with a female. The male

can grow up to nine centimetres long!

Baby rabbits are called kittens. They are naked, blind and helpless when they

are born but in a few days they have grown soft baby fur.
