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…
Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth
I went back to the rapeseed field. Just had to see if it was in full bloom. Not quite it was, but almost! And the summer-ish fragrance was there.
But should I get home in time before the rain started pouring down and making me soaking wet? After lunch the clouds had been building up, and the wind was increasing so at first I didn’t know if I could bike to the field at all. But I wanted to, so I dared myself.
Yes, I did! I managed to bike against the wind, and I did get home again in time. Actually! It didn’t rain at all here, but I saw the shadowy curtains on distans while still on the bike on my way home.
And the weather changed! It got colder and overall more windy after this. So… now it’s more like it should be in May! Spring! Not like in the hottest time of summer.
That’s today, I mean, May 10th, but five years ago.
It was a mere coincidence! If there is such a thing…
I browsed my photos a couple of days ago and picked some that could do well to “Earth”. And now when I had edited this one, considered myself to be satisfied with the outcome, and drag it into WP – that’s the moment I realized todays date is May 10th. Just like the day I took this photo 2011.
What I mean by this chit-chat? Well! Nothing really. At least I don’t think so. It was, and is, a lovely day. But I haven’t been out in the woods and seen any anemones this year. Yet. So much to do, so little time…
What would we do without water?
Nothing. Nothing at all!
One of the most summer-ish fragrances – for me – is when the rapeseed fields are in full bloom. And in just a couple of days, maybe already tomorrow thanks to the warm, sunny weather, this field will be all intense yellow.
The fragrance! Spicy, thick, tender, wonderfully overwhelming…
I’ll keep my eyes – and nose – on this field for some time now. Unfortunately it won’t remain in full bloom for long – so better use every available day now to bike there, and just enjoy.
