Solstice Berries

Damp

Today’s weather forecast is for damp and grey all day…starting with fog and ending with rain.

Happy Summer Day

It won’t be all that cold, but still – not great summer solstice weather…

.

.

Beckoning

…but some things don’t wait for pleasant days…

.

.

out of reach

…like ripe berries (the best of which are always out of reach!)…

.

.

Thimbleberry

…but Tipsy got one!

.

.

Thimble

This is why they are called Thimbleberries!

.

.

Salmonberry

The Salmonberry’s name is because the berry looks like a cluster of salmon eggs (but it tastes like a berry, not a fish), Vanilla is relieved!

.

.

Black Currant

One of Arianell’s favourite berries – so tart and flavourful!!

.

.

Strawberry

The Strawberry pot has some beautiful ripening berries, and Carrot Soup found one perfect one!!!

.

.

Summer Breakfast

Now what could be a more perfect first day of summer breakfast than ripe berries, freshly picked??

Happy Summer Solstice to all our friends north of the equator, and Happy first day of winter to our friends south of the equator, and may all your seasons be fruitful!

  1. Summer solstice is not my favorite day of the year… it means that the days are getting shorter- sigh! But, it is all about savoring the loveliness of the season isn’t it? The Hitty berry breakfast looks scrumptious!

    • The amount of daylight lessens a little bit every day from now until the December solstice, but the North Pole points more toward the sun, so we should get warmer weather…Berry season is our favourite season of all!

  2. Your Hittys are dressed in such lively colors. Despite the gloom of the weather, the pretty berries accompanied by bright colored Hittys brings joy to my eyes.

  3. We’ve never seen salmonberries or Thimbleberries…they really do resemble their names. We are always learning such interesting things from your girls. Couldn’t help but notice that Vanilla found the berry that matched her dress, as well as Arianell and carrot soup…the berries seemed to be drawn to these nature loving girls. So sweet.

    • We aren’t quite sure if the girls were luring the berries or the berries were luring the girls! The combination was perfect however, and everyone shared the bounty. Fresh berry compote – mmmm!
