Rain, Roses & Rope

Back in my home country, Finland, celebrating Midsummer is a big thing. There must be some Solstice festivities going on around the UK too, but for us now, it's been family time. It's beautiful around Castleton area, so even the grey rainy weather didn't keep us indoors.
While waiting for the Solstice sun to show itself, at least we can enjoy the "rose season" with a multitude of glorious colours all around! 

And when the drizzle from the sky got a bit wetter, there was the Peak Cavern nearby to dive into, with a fascinating demonstration of olden days' rope making. 


Topping it off with something I've never yet tasted before: a slice of courgette cake! (It was yummy, off to find a recipe for this now, I think...)
