Midsommar

We did the ultra Swedish Midsommar this year. We decorated my parents barn and had a traditional Swedish bufe with herring, knäckebröd, lots of different pies, salmon, new potatoes, meatballs, sausages, cheeses, and of course the mandatory strawberries. All along with strawberry punch.

Hardly working or working hard?

Eds and Tage were  more interested in cutting the flowers up in as tiny pieces as possible

And if you want more details on how we really do celebrate (true) Midsummer here is a short clip:

  1. Ser ut att ha varit en riktigt trevlig och riktigt svensk midsommar. Hoppas ingen blev stångad av getterna bara…

  2. I really like it when people come together and share thoughts.
    Great blog, continue the good work!
