Just Enjoy these Midsummer Mornings.

Even though Midsummer has passed,the mornings are still fresh and filled with anticipation for me. The earth seems to hold its breath, waiting for the high summer sunshine to blaze in August and combust, leaving a way to Fall’s sweet melancholy. This is the moment to pluck the fruit, as it begins to ripen, catch it before it falls.MIdsummeristhetimethesunentersCancer, the homebody sign. Fittingly, I’m spending all my time sorting through old possessions, in a final throwdown with my new place, hoping to pull it into shape, for the second half of the year. I’ve been devouring YouTube home makeover videos, with a passion.
The early morning haze, the pre summer’s day coolness gives time to pause, think, unwind from the week.Even meditate.DV
The romance of summer is now upon us, with long flowing dresses and garlands for our hair. Walk now, through country fields and festivals alike, wearing your sensitivity with pride, even if only for a solitary Sunday pre-breakfast ramble, or in place of the Saturday shopping crush.
Chill. Smell the flowers, blow the dandelion clock and let the dove and the cuckoo lull your questions into silence.
Treat yourself: dress up in garlands and summer slips, like this gorgeous dress by Hush UK.
Walk out one Midsummer Morning, before the slow roll of August’s drum sounds the approach of Fall.
