Smiles Of A Summer Night

Has summer come at last? There's sun and blue skies. The temperature is 21 degrees. Bees and butterflies are on the buddleia. Perhaps it would be good to settle down this evening with Bergman's Summer Interlude (1951), Summer with Monika (1953), Smiles of a Summer Night (1955) or Wild Strawberries (1957). Realistically what's more likely to happen is: drinking chilled white wine in the garden, eating fresh salad and strawberries, and watching the screaming swifts wheel overhead... It's a hard life! But where is Monika?
