Summer Solstice

We had pancakes topped with a berry sauce for breakfast and filled the house with flowers.  Seraphina picked out pretty pink candles for the table  We made a sun catcher from flowers that we dried during the spring.  I gave them the book Sing a Song of Seasons:: A Nature Poem for Each Day of the Year, not because it’s a gift-giving occasion in our house, but because I wanted it anyway and just thought it would add to our celebration.  Its really one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever seen.

    Hi Melody,
    Such pretty flowers! The garden really is in full bloom at the moment.
    I love your little dream catcher flowery wreath. How did you make it?
    Not much happening here as I’ve been struck down with a tummy bug which is leaving me limp. I keep thinking I’m over the worst and then find I’m not. No eating today, just boiled water and hope that gives my poor tummy a rest.
    I hope you have a lovely week. Caz

    I’m so sorry to hear you’ve been unwell! I hope it finally passes soon.

    For the wreath we sandwiched pressed and dried flowers between clear contact paper. The frame is some cordage that one of the kids made last year out of dried iris leaves.

    Feel better,
