My first Midsummer in Sweden was just Purrrrrfect with my friends. 

Though the day was raining in the morning but it ended up as a sunny one in the afternoon. 

Pickled herring is a particular favourite during this season. Also strawberries and the lingonberries are quite popular in the summer and they are usually consumed in the form of cake or cream.

Flower wreaths are a common motif in Midsummer gatherings. You can find revelers of all genders wearing these garlands. Mine was not real but it was a pretty one which I will keep on my mirror as a positive sign. 

Here you can see my mini towering maypole - it is usually a huge one, so people can dance around it - which is an iconic symbol of Midsummer celebrations. 

Hope you had a wonderful celebration too. Puss Puss, J
