There is the myth in Baltic mythology about a magic flower of fern which supposed to appear only on the night from 23rd to 24th of June during the celebration of the summer solstice which is called Rasos or Joninės (western St. John’s day).
As Lithuania is located in the north, the night of St. John’s is so short, that as soon as the last lights of the day fade in the west, the sky in the east brightens up with the dawn. This night is filled with magic, rituals and omen.
An ancient belief says that the Rasos is the only time of the year when ferns bloom. The flower brings prosperity, a fortune to the person who finds it. In various versions of the tale, the fern flower brings luck, wealth, the ability to understand animal speech to whoever finds it.
Traditionally on that night, young and old alike go out to search for magical herbs and especially the magical fern flower.
Young ladies, wearing floral crowns, are the first to enter the forest followed by young men. The seek of herbs and the fern flower may lead to the blooming of relationships between the couples.
Girls float wreaths of flowers lit with candles in rivers to gain foresight into their relationship. Men try to capture the wreaths, hoping to gain the interest of the lady who floated the wreath. On the night of Rasos, youth jumps over the bonfires to test a bravery and faith. Jumping the flames while holding hands tests the strength of relationship of the coupe.
In fact, ferns are not flowering plants so the search might take a while, to save time and avoid tripping over in the dark forest, have a look at the list of suggested products to brighten your day, add some mystic and ancient feel to the Rasos celebration.

Down the Rabbit Hole..

Text from  Lewis Carroll "Alice In Wonderland"
Photos by Greta from

Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do. Once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, "and what is the use of a book," thought Alice, "without pictures or conversations?"

So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

There was nothing so very remarkable in that, nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" But when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket and looked at it and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and, burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole, under the hedge. In another moment, down went Alice after it!
