Standing on the edge of the lake,
The water as calm as a mirror,
I spot swans
On the other side
And a bridge floating
Among luscious green reflections.

Sunrise and it’s the autumn equinox:
The lake is still and beautiful
With rising mist in shades of pink.
The moon admires itself in the water –
Reflecting brightly like a silver penny.
(I’ve forgotten my big camera —
But as the saying goes, “The best camera is the one you have with you.”)

It wouldn’t be summer
Without an excursion down to the lake
And a hot air balloon
Floating away over lilac
For more gorgeous sights, please visit: Skywatch.
Enjoy the view.
Throw out the line
And catch a beautiful
(Lots of events planned over the next coming days, so I won’t be able
To visit your blogs. But thanks for your visit!)

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

June was a time of misty greens
And magical tunnels of leaves.
It drizzled a lot,
Meaning that everything
And slightly out of focus.
But you know what –
I love it!

It was a gorgeous evening
When I went out for a walk with the dogs.
The summer light
Drizzled over grass and dogs alike
Lighting up the fields
With its honeyed glow
So that there was gold
Both in the sky
And in the grass.

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.

Life is busy with deadlines, work
And enjoying the beauty of summer,
So I won’t be able to visit your blogs this week.
Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly….

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!
