Summer is officially here! The local blogosphere is bursting with things to do and lovely summer sights around town:
• Tomorrow morning, the Lawrence Public Library offers a chance for KU professors to get out of their academic box. Ukeleles are involved.
• Meryl at My Bit of Earth posts a beautiful gallery of her garden today, the first day of summer.
• More photos from Tall Tales of Kansas: Carol took pictures of June sunrises during her morning commute. I see why photographers call that time of morning, "the magic hour."
• Last but not least, The Larryville Chronicles gathers up a bunch of events and things to do today and this weekend to celebrate the summer solstice.
How are you celebrating the solstice and enjoying summer?

The weather catapulted summer over spring this week and Lawrence fashions have rushed to keep up.
The local fashion blogs are riddled with linens, dresses, shorts and sandals inspired by the sudden plunge into summer. Kansas Couture's daily outfit reflected a vintage summer look and Style on the Hill made an appearance on Campus Sartorialist this week (also see last month's photo) with lace and cowboy boots.
Our own Style Scout (featuring Jennifer Doores) is blooming with bright color, as well.
Speaking of clothes, or lack thereof, it's graduation time in Lawrence. A student decided there's no better celebration outfit than his birthday suit:
In true #LFK fashion, The Larryville Chronicles has given the nude man a new identity, branding him a local folk hero named the "Anschutz Streaker," after the library he raced through.
We wonder what the Anschutz streaker is up to this morning? #LFK— LarryvilleLife (@larryvillelife) May 15, 2013
I'm just as curious to find this guy, but when I do, I hope he's moved past the Emperor's new clothes fashion and onto something more visible.
