Midsummer! Summer Solstice! Celebrate Summer!

Celebrating the Summer Solstice and Midsummer - very big deal at our house but celebrated in the sweetest and simplest ways.
Fresh flowers are floated in my little "Kildefest Well" every day from now on until autumn equinox.
The well was created last year in honor of my friend, Margit, who lives on a tiny island in the Baltic Sea - Bornholm - where Kildefest is celebrated at Midsummer - with "Kildefest Wells"! Read more here about my well and then in Margit's very own words - the celebration of Kildefest on Bornholm.
The sweet peas - grown from seeds saved from last year - are not as tall as they were at this time last year but I planted some African Daisies just in case so there would be flowers at Midsummer!
Mostly our celebration this year is all about our strawberry harvest! Two handfuls like this a day - pretty much a full basket!
We are like two ten year olds peaking under the Christmas Tree when we go out to our garden each morning searching for breakfast! So exciting! Never had a crop like this!
Certainly plenty for breakfast!
Saving them up a couple days and adding a few blueberries and there is plenty of fruit for the most delicious pie ever! Seriously! Try the recipe I shared here, but make it with 2 1/2 pint baskets of fresh strawberries (instead of raspberries) and one pint of blueberries!
Why has it taken me so long to figure this out. Strawberries are simply delicious in this pie recipe! Delicious!
This pie lasted exactly 24 hours!
I enjoy my pie in the garden thank you - for breakfast - of course!
How are you celebrating the beginning of summer? Tell me! Tell me!
