Midsummer and Midwinter

I wish you all in the southern hemisphere a blessed midwinter with only sunshine and joy yet to come! 




I also wish those in the northern hemisphere a blessed midsummer of sunshine and joy and that it will be a long time before snow comes again!




Be it the longest day of summer or the shortest of winter let us hope for a wonderful day for us all!!

Amy

p.s. pictures are (of course!) all from my archive.

  1. Thank you, Amy. I was woken up by the birds singing their dawn chorus very early this morning! It was quite a good way to start the day and so I'm probably one of the first to wish you a good one whatever you're doing today. xx

  2. I can't believe the nights will be getting longer already! We don't seem to have had much warm sunshine, particularly in the evenings yet!
    Hope you have a great day. X

  3. Happy midsummer's day to you too, Amy! Breezy and rainy here at the moment but I'm keeping fingers crossed for some midsummer sun. x

  4. I agree with Sara I can't believe it will start and get dark again already we don't seem to have had much in the way of light summer days and we've definitely not been able to enjoy an evening sitting in the garden much this year. It almost feels as if summer came and went in about April.

  5. Your pictures are so pretty. I love and hate this day. It is the beginning of summer and I love it for that, but it also means that we are closer to winter and that I do not like anymore.

  6. Another one here who cannot believe days will already be starting to get shorter...
    But hey, let's stay positive, hopefully we'll have a fantastic summer ahead of us !

  7. Thank you for a beautiful bunch of happy flowers, on what has been a bleak day for us over here on the underside of the world :) xxx

  8. I forgot it was the summer solstice today, perhaps because we haven't yet had any summer. It's a bit depressing really that it's all downhill from here.

  9. Hope you have a wonderful day too, Amy am in front of myself today as I was up at 4.50a.m. with the aged cats and we watched the sun appear, don't know if I'll stay awake to watch it go down but I'll try:)

  11. Summer starts around 12:48 pm today, it's Father's Day here and we got to Skype with our daughter this morning. It is a good day, hope yours is too.

  12. Lovely images, Amy!
    Yes, we are going towards autumn now, but let's hope we will have very many sunny and warm days before that. :)
    Have a great week ahead! xx

  14. I am so taken aback that it is Midsummer already, I think I must have slept through a couple of weeks or something. We are into longer nights already and yet we haven't enjoyed any warm evenings yet.

  16. I upset my family each year with the summer solstice, as being a winter person, I start shouting "that's it! autumn is on its way!!" :-D The darker, warmer evenings of August will soon be on us which I love too. Gorgeous xx

  21. Your images are lovely, Amy. I have a weigela like yours but I have transplanted it twice in the past year and there aren't any blooms this year. It looks healthy otherwise, though. Have a great week!

  22. Happy summer to you Amy. I was surprised to see the snowy photos here that reminded my of my least favourite season, although the photos are pretty. ;) xx Pam

  23. I can't believe we are at this point of the season. I can't think about snow yet!

  24. Thanks Amy, it does actually feel a bit wintery today for once. We have been lucky with nice weather so far. I hope the sun is shining for you over there. Lovely photos as always.

  25. Lovely to look at all the colour in your garden when we are in the midst of winter here. I just caught up on all your blog posts and scrolling through your images took me right back to the garden at my childhood home with all the hypericum, pokers and fuchsias, which have all long since been ripped out. Thanks for the nostalgia!
