Midsummer’s eve

Cheers! Midsummer is a huge deal in Sweden, second only to Christmas (and for some, not even that). I spent mine at our cabin in the woods, basking in the somewhat unexpected sun and fending off the odd mosquito.

The wild roses haven’t quite got there yet, but they’re coming. The cranesbill was out en masse, though.

No trip to the cabin is complete without a good campfire and a fishing expedition. Preparations are underway.

We got a pike!

I’m such a sucker for forest paths. This one leads from our cabin to untold adventures.

Since it’s midsummer, the sun only sets for a couple of hours. This pic was taken at around eleven in the evening.

Later still, the sun dipped below the horizon.

At midnight, a mist swept in and shrouded the landscape in gauze.

At half past midnight, I took a final picture (below) and headed back to the cabin for some shuteye. The barest hint of pink in the sky tells me it’s summer and all is well with the world… 🙂

    I love the field and the wild flowers. It looks like Sweden is such a wonderful place to be right now 🙂

      Thank you! 🙂 I’m partial, I guess, but I really love it this time of year.
