Blessed Litha


Unfortunately the weather today didn't reflect what I'd expect the beginning of summer to be. It's been rather windy, not very warm and there has been a slight drizzle of rain every now and again. It's the longest day of the year, yet today as the rain clouds are forming it feels like it got darker much earlier than it did the last few days.

The not so summery weather and the fact that I didn't prepare anything means I haven't got much to show today. I had lots of little craft projects in mind for today, most of them involving flowers and candles, but I never got round to it.

The only thing I've got signifying the summer solstice is this pebble I found on the beach a few weeks ago. It reminded me of witches dancing around the sun.

Can you see what I mean? Pretty impressive, huh?

I do have a Litha picture from last year though I'd like to share:

I was 8 months pregnant this time last year and the weather was very sunny and warm as you'd expect it to be on summer solstice. Painting a sun on my belly seemed appropriate to celebrate Litha.
