June Quotes To Get Ready For Summer

june quotes

June is my favorite month. The weather is nice and it’s still not too warm. Also, the nights are cool, unlike July and August. But June is also the seasonal equivalent to December in the Southern Hemisphere!

In the Northern Hemisphere, the beginning of the traditional astronomical summer is 21 June (meteorological summer begins on 1 June).
