Happy Summer Solstice!

The longest day, the shortest night, the night of midsummer dreaming.   In these longest days it is easy to get wrapped up, carried away, with projects and plans.  It is easy to get to runaway speed especially in Australia where the Christmas holidays fall on the midsummer solstice (and not the traditional midwinter one). It is good to take a moment to remember to relax and enjoy life. It is good to connect with all our senses, to feel the sheer physical joy of being.

We did it this year with a candlelit dinner of finger food delicacies. For those who were there, the recipe for the caramelised onion tartlets is below.

    Linda, that looks like my idea of a great night!
    Also, letting you know we are enjoying the corn from my first site, more tasteful than anything we’ve ever eaten before! Site 2 is brimming with goodness, Site 3 on the way, and chooks working away at Site 4.
    All thanks to your inspiration.
    Merry, merry Xmas to you and yours.

    I love midsummer! We missed out this year as our organiser of gatherings is moving house and understandably didn’t want a bunch of us in the way…. the candles in your photo look amazing.

    Happy midsummer – your blog brings me much joy and I will be trying those caramelised onion tartlets over the holiday break!
