The theme for Eclectic Ellapu's Pink Team challenge for June is Midsummer!
This was a fun one for me, as I originally learned about the Midsummer holiday via green walnuts. Seriously. It is odd, but true. Turns out that St. John's Day, aka Midsummer Day, aka June 24, marks the first day that many (European) markets have green walnuts available. Why would people want to buy unripened walnuts? To make pickled walnuts, vin de noix, and nocino, of course!
May you have a heady Midsummer Day!
The painting depicted on this card is "Salome with the Head of John the Baptist" by Guido Reni, circa 1630-1635.
