My words, thoughts and photos from a Swedish perspective

Midsummer

We celebrated Midsummer eve yesterday, the longest day of the year. Ok, it still has 24 hours, so what we celebrate is that the daylight has reached its peak. It may sound strange to some of you, but we think that it’s something worth celebrating after the dark and cold winter.

The weather could be better though. The Midsummers I remember from my childhood were all sunny and warm. Those days are long gone and for some strange reason, the Midsummers are now rainy and cold instead wherefore I can’t blame the global warming or other things mankind has caused. I spotted a little puddle on my balcony and it inspired me to take a picture of it. It’s not the perfect summer photo, but at least it’s an artistic attempt. They say Monday will bring nice weather and I look forward to that.

    i think i would like the long winter nights, and the dark. after so long here in a blazing hot place, where the sun is cruel and unusual, i welcome the idea of your climate.
