The winter solstice
Tuesday, December 21, 2021
07:59 PST (15:59 UTC). The winter solstice. It's here. Some mistletoe, Viscum album, from De historia stirpium. This sumptuously illustrated herbal was published in 1542 by none other than our own Leonhart Fuchs, namesake of the Fuchsia. Now on to brighter, longer days!
