Saturday Snapshot: Midsummer´s eve





Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce @ AT Home With Books.
Share your photos with us! They can be old or new but should be taken by you!


Today I am going to share a photo with you of something kind of unlikely to happen in Sweden! I should explain! 98 % of the time it rains on midsummer´s eve. And since we celebrate this and dance around the may pole we want it to be nice weather right? Well, not gonna happen if you live here. It can be sunny the day before or the day after but almost never on Midsummer´s eve. And if it is, it is sunny and then rainy and then sunny.... Well you get the picture.We have a really funny beer commercial about that actually! 


Anyway, this year (yesterday) we actually had nice weather! 
But today we have rain!

Oh, that is pretty. We had rain where I am in England on Mid-summer Eve. My Snapshot is here http://goo.gl/ou72V

And you took a picture of the nice weather too! I love your midsummer tradition. I lived in Sweden for a year when I was a child and my brother was born on midsummer eve! That was a long time ago, though. He just turned 35. I'd love to get back to Sweden one day. It's such a lovely country.

I would love to visit Sweden, since my maternal grandparents were born and raised there. They came to the US in adulthood.

Thanks for sharing...and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

Gorgeous light coming through makes a couple of those purple flowers almost translucent. I love it!

And here in the Virgin Islands we could do with some rain! It hasn't rained in two or three months.

How lucky you were to have such a beautiful day! We don't celebrate midsummer's eve here, is it the same as the summer solstice?
