Beautiful day! I still have trouble with June 21 being "midsummer". It's the first day, how is it "mid"? I never could figure that out.

Because it's based on the pagan calendar rather than the Christian calendar :-) x

It's still not the middle of the summer, but when the day is the longest... Scratch most of the Christian calendar, and you'll get a pagan holiday. And the solstice is not a Christian holiday at all, come to think of it.

Yes, the solstice is definitely pagan. Rich and I always celebrate it somewhere, we've spent the night on Glastonbury Tor a couple of times. Although June is considered the beginning of summer on the Christian calendar, in England (where a lot of this occurred) June is usually our warmest month. So I guess it really is midsummer in the farming season. Planting occurs in February/March/April and harvest is the end of August and September. X

Oh my God, look at that sky! So, so jealous!

Sounds like a lovely weekend, may the others be as good or even better! :-)

What gorgeous views! That looks like so much fun. And nutella pancakes... yum!

I want some crepes, now! We have some chocolate almond spread that would be delicious in them! Too bad we used the rest of our strawberries making icecream, or that would be super tasty with it, too! xx

Maybe the kites wanted a nutella sandwich? ;-)
