Midsummer? I'll never understand. Thank you to the lovely friends who gave me some solstice suggestions! (cleaning? making a cake? yes and yes.)
I thought I'd show you some of my favorite fairy pictures, on this magical day. Julia and I will be scattering some cake crumbs and flower petals outside in the garden this evening....and probably our dog will have a good time with those items.....Have a lovely start to summer, or solstice party, or midsummer night dreaming!

And I have (of course) an entire Pinterest board devoted to fairies and fairy tales, if you'd care to see. Happy Midsummer!
