SUNSET, SUNRISE ON MIDSUMMER NIGHT











With music and friends watching sunset by a lake on Midsummer's night. Small garden ferry floating with a bonfire on the lake. Guitars, ukuleles playing. Singing. 


Bicycling up the hills and down again. On the other side of the city, by another lake with a small lighthouse, watching the sun rising again.


Seven flowers of last year. Bonfire last year.


Sunday for listening to the rain by a third lake, the small one behind my windows. Two swans are my new neighbors.


Have a good last week of June, filled with fresh tastes and sun kissed cheeks!

  5. So cozy. This is the ideal midsummer. A pity I didn't go out for a nightly bike ride too this year. It's one of the best things to do when the sun doesn't set. Happy midsummer to you!

  14. It looks wonderful! I am sad I actually missed midsummer in scandinavia this year, but I am in Australia at the moment, and I just found the article with your interview in Frankie magazine. Congrats! I follow every new posts of your blog, and it feels like home to see your drawings, and amazing to see them printed in my hands. :-)
