Midsummer Magic

You can always try these... And if you want to make a wish, instead of
"husband" you can wish for a horse - or at least a little pony...

Roll around naked in a wheat field and your future husband will appear in your life
within a year. If you wish to become more beautiful, do it when there´s morning dew...
You can collect dew in cloths and press it into bottles for the year to come.

          "But is there anything - or anybody - better
                                 than a loyal, beloved horse?"

Look for a four-leafed clover from the yard in the evening. Hide it under your shirt,
next to your bosom. By the midnight, let your hair loose and run to the field. Walk
around the field three times. When the person you love will eat bread made out of the
wheat from that specific field, he will fall in love with you.

Collect eight different flowers or herbs. Hideout the bouquet underneath your pillow. 
You will see “the one” in your dream.

Dandelions, daisies and buttercups

In the night, climb up somewhere high – on a hill, on top of a fell or a big rock. Your
future husband will come from the same direction as the first sound of the morning.
If you hear music, it means an approaching wedding.
If you hear a child crying, it is a sign of birth.

                               The mist of the nightless night

Midsummer, the magical time of the midnight sun and meadow flowers.

For these photos we thank Jessica and her beautiful Finnhorses. We think that
in these photos she has beautifully captured the spirit of the midsummer night and
the nature of a Finnhorse, our national treasure.

We wish you all a happy Midsummer Eve!
