"Life isn't long enough to do all you could accomplish. And what a privilege even to be alive. In spite of all the pollutions and horrors, how beautiful this world is.
Supposing you only saw the stars once every year. Think what you would think. The wonder of it!"--Tasha Tudor

Midsummer's Eve

Today, June 21st is the Summer Solstice, or the longest day and the shortest night of the year. It is a magical night for Corgis everywhere. Don't be surprised if you find your little faerie steeds among the missing in the wee hours of the morning. They are probably out flying all of the tiny fay ones to parties amidst the fairy rings in gardens all over town. The Corgis will adorn themselves with lovely wreaths of flowers and ribbons. I heard that the faeries have been preparing magical little feasts for days. On the menu are big juicy strawberries, mint iced tea and lemonade, fairy cupcakes with lots of frosting with little edible flowers covered in sugar, and freshly baked cookies for their honored Corgi friends. Tonight there will be parties with dancing to ancient Celtic reels and glowing glass jars filled with hundreds of lightening bugs by volunteer Corgis. The little fireflies will surely be set free when the party is in full swing by other Corgis and faeries who have sampled too much of the Midsummer's Eve punch.

Let your tired Corgis sleep in tomorrow morning for after providing transport for the fairy realm and partying all night, they will surely need a few extra winks. Never fear, for after a good sleep they will be right as rain once again.

Happy Summer, my lovelies! xo xo CS ♥

When I saw your title, I could hardly wait for the link to go through. I knew you would have wonderful illustrations, but wasn't prepared for the story. Love it. Thank you, my friend. Love the photo with the wreath. Now, I'll have to make my Chelsea girl a wreath. :-)
Hoosier hugs, Cheryl

Welp, it'll be a miracle if Stella makes it to all the parties. She played ball girl tonight whilst my nephew and I were playing tennis, after dinner. She looks pretty wiped out to me, butt maybe it's all an act, LOL!

How adorable... both the story and the pictures! I'll have to post about this on our Country Corgi Facebook page and put in our picture of Dott with his "fairy rider!"
