Once upon a time it was Midsummer.
Our hammock expert setup our hammocks. This time with mosquito nets.
Carl-Johan cut down trees.
And rebuilt them into the traditional “fertility cross”.
Then it was time for the traditional fertility pickled fish.
Then we sang the fertility songs.
We rode the fertility boat.
Belle wouldn’t be smiling if she knew it was a fertility boat.
Flower does know. She isn’t smiling.
Flower helped Belle pick things off the ground.
The things are then carefully threaded onto another thing.
Wild strawberry chain!
Then swimming and fishing and dog rubbing.
Then drinking songs.
Then sunset, or sunrise. It’s hard to tell.
Then more drinking songs.
Then the middle of summer was over.
