Midsummer 2012

Midsummer is one of my favourite Sabbaths. I love this time of year, with all the flowers and the long, light days. I always feel so alive when the sun is at its peak!

It has been a while since I celebrated Summer Solstice properly, so it felt good to do it again. I started setting up my altar, with a new table cloth, strawberries, flowers and all. I went out to pick flowers after a small meal, and gathered them in a small basket for later use. Here is a photo taken before the ritual:

I’m not going into details about my ritual here, those are for me only, but  I can tell you as much as this: I had a bit to eat and drink in the circle (bread, strawberries and ale), and I made a  flower garland from the flowers I had picked.  I had a very nice Midsummer marking, all by myself. Here’s the altar, after the ritual:
