There will be apples

My photos is from Fredriksdal, Museums & Gardens.
I was there easter saturday, but since then it has been very cold and windy so I haven’t revisited the gorgeous surroundings since. But I will! It takes me only about 10 minutes to bike there from where I live, and now, only 10 days later and despite the harsh weather, it’s already much greener. Lovely summer-days are closing in

I was trying to explain about this wonderful museum-area in English, but I had to give up! Would probably have had difficulties explain about Fredriksdal in Swedish as well. It would have taken some serious amount of time, so to speak…

The link HERE is to the main site written in Swedish. At the top there is a Translation-button, but remember it’s generated by Google and as such there may very well be errors in the translation. But better than nothing!

And I’m so lucky to live in a city where there is so much to see and experience! So many parks and beautiful areas. And the long beeches… Well! The entire city is beautiful – on the whole…

Pure happiness

Weekly Photo Challenge: Surprise

Back to my old self…

One image only – edited and colorfully playfully enhanced – and not many words… if any…

On my way home from downtown city a week ago, I walked uphill and through a rhododendron path – and on the top I found this. Scilla coloring the ground blue, and a tree with funny … hm… appearance. The shadows intrigued me and now with the iPad in my hands, and Pixlr opened – I couldn’t resist trying to make the image even more spooky than the original. The sun in the eyes, you know…

Feelings of security

The first I saw when I entered the wood (i.e. huge park-area) Pålsjö skog, was not all the beech trees nor the other burgeoning greenery. It was the endless carpets of wood anemones that caught my eyes. I stopped my bike, descended and just went on walking very slowly along the lane, breathing the fresh air, and drinking the beauty around me.

And spring is finally here, that’s for sure! (I hope)

At the old Pavillion, once upon a time built for dancing, you can sit down and enjoy waffles. With or without toppings. And with, for example, coffee! Sitting away from the slightly chilly wind, embracing the sun, was so wonderful. Feelings of being secure, calm, relaxed – and happy – filled me from top to bottom. Really good gut-feelings!

The pavillion, rotunda! If I don’t remember wrong, at least there are possibilities to dance here in the summer. Particularly Midsummer eve.

From some distance…

And no! No toppings for me. Cream makes me feel ill in my stomach; I don’t like jam – too sweet; and didn’t feel like having something salty today. But the waffle was delicious nevertheless. Hot, crispy and with a superb hint of vanilla.


Anemone quinquefolia is an early-spring flowering plant in the genus Anemone, native to North America. It is commonly called wood anemone, like Anemone nemorosa, a closely related European species. The American species has been treated as a subspecies of Anemone nemorosa.
