Bishop Hill

A few weeks ago I visited the Swedish utopian village of Bishop Hill, Illinois  for the traditional Midsommar maypole celebration.  It’s a pretty town and always reminds me of all the things I love most about being in the country. Here are some more pictures from the visit–everything from Swedish meatballs and the pie menu at one of the local restaurants, to a group of oddly expressive straw goats, to unique garden arrangements, to a sharpening wheel of the sort I remember from the farm.
