Kissed by the Solstice Sun..

Then followed that beautiful season SUMMER.. Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light, and the landscape. Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.

Yeah for Summer and sun! It finally feels like Summer has arrived here, even if it's still on the cool side. Being outside and soaking in the sun is my way of celebrating.
There are so many pretty pictures in this post, but the glowing Morning Glory is one of my favorites.

Autumn Belle said...

What a beautiful midsummer post. I see the magic in the flowers that glow from the centre, the giant tree, the lovely sun and the power of the crystal citrines. From the glory of the morning sun to the glow of a midsummer moonlit night.
