Midsummer reign

Midsummer in Sweden is often wet…

But the irises don’t mind.

Bike handles are transformed into works of art

And plants are fireworks of pearly raindrops.

It’s Midsummer’s Eve here on Friday:

May your maypoles always be rich in flowers!

For more flowery greetings, please go to: Our World.

  1. From such beautiful photos I can always learn a lot in my photography.
    Even though my photos are not nearly as good.
    Practice makes perfect.
    Thank you for this message.
    Greetings Theo

  2. You find artful photography in the most amazing places. I have always loved irises and have put them in a league with orchids because of their intricacies. 🙂


  3. Hello, lovely images. The irises are beautiful and I love the droplets. Happy Midsummer! Enjoy your day, wishing you a happy new week!


  4. Fiona, these images are AMAZING! It’s looks as though little Swarovski crystals were dropped all over them. Just gorgeous!

    Wishing you a magical time on Midsummer’s Eve! I love the sound of that!

    Have a beautiful week, my friend!


  5. This rain you speak of. Is sugar crystal crowns encrusted. An insinuates natural beauty of the Queen Mother. Nature.Don’t she look fine.


  6. Fantastic macros. I can’t believe those are bike handles! Incredible, you have such an eye. My bike handles just look sweaty, lol.


  7. Waterdroplet photos are always so pretty. Here is Ohio, we are getting more dry after lots of rainy weather this Spring. Thanks for hosting.


  8. The three photos displayed are very cool. I was amazed to see frozen water drops …, because only in certain areas in my country experienced such an ice drop. Greetings from Indonesia.


  9. Ljuvliga bilder! Och visst är det så… Midsommar och regn hör liksom ihop på nåt sätt. Hur många år har man inte stått vid midsommarstången och huttrat… Men det hör liksom till. Hoppas du får en härlig midsommarhelg!


  10. Irises have always been one of my favorite flowers since I was a kid. I missed seeing them altogether this year, as this is my first ever summer spent here in Saudi Arabia. Hope you are staying well.


  11. I really like your beautiful blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and a very interesting blog. I will come back to visit you. Do not hesitate to visit my universe. See you soon. 🙂
