The jetty in my old neighbourhood
Is still as delightfully wonky as ever.
And the world looks deliciously
Enchanting with the rising sun.

Midsummer’s Eve is the second most important
Celebration in Sweden after Christmas.
It’s a time for dancing
Around the midsummer maypole
With flowers in your hair
No matter whether you are male, female or child.
The folk dancers
Wear their traditional costumes —
(They start them off young…)
As do the musicians:
It’s hard work though!
And everyone has fun
No matter colour, age or belief system.
And that’s what is important in the world:
Love and tolerance.

We’ve had a lot of rain this summer —
And it’s been wonderful discovering the different flowers in the garden.
Raindrops are beautiful kisses
On the petalled lips of tulips,
While bringing out the fragrance
Of the lilacs.
(This post is scent with love
From me to you.)

Last week, I had the great pleasure of going out to a horse farm
To take photos for a friend.
I fell in love with the three-week-old foal, Celino.
He was full of love
And nibbles for his mother.
And she was so nurturing and tender
Love is grand, isn’t it,
No matter where you find it
Or in what form it takes.
For mare great photos (excuse the pun!), please visit: Our World.
Have you ever wondered what a large city
Looks like before the sun is up?
I arrived at Hoboken Park at 5 in the morning
During my visit to New York
To bring you the answer:
The blush of dawn
Makes everything look beautiful.
(That’s the George Washington Bridge you can see.)

You know you live in Sweden
When you’re not totally surprised to see Viking warriors
Camped outside a tent.
Viking heritage is celebrated around the country
In different events.
This two-day festival took place near my home
And the guest of honour was this beautiful
100-year-old replica of a Viking boat.
Families often dress up
And attend these Viking festivals
Using clothes and equipment that reflect how life was back then —
Even sleeping out
In these comfy-looking tents.
Talk about making history come alive!
