Midsummer's Eve

It is the longest day of the year.  It is midsummer.  It is a time to create our own maypole with green branches and flowers.  We should dance around it until the sun comes up, enjoy good food and drink, and each other.

If I had a maypole, it would look very similar to this one in this picture that I snagged.  Once I had dressed the pole, I would make a beautiful garland with wild flowers and wear it in my hair.  It must be part of my Scandinavian heritage that makes my feet tap in rhythm with the rain drops falling down on the roof of my summer kitchen.

Celebrate the summer solstice.  Do it responsibly.
