Rosendals Trädgård – day 2

December 8th, 2016

I’m back today with more photos from Rosendals Trädgård in Stockholm. What I loved about this garden was the wonderful variety of edible space, open space, cutting garden, and enclosed garden spaces. They provide such a wonderful inspiration for a garden made of rooms. The huge edible garden space was quite impressive, it provides much of the vegetables needed in their cafe. We enjoyed a wonderful lunch while there, which was super convenient! All public gardens should have wonderful little cafes!

I’m Back, with A Lovely Garden

December 7th, 2016

I had great intentions of blogging while I was back in Ohio celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas with family, but things just got busy and I didn’t get around to it. I’m back in Maine for the week, then I travel back to Ohio for another week (if you’re wondering why so much travel, you probably missed this post). I’m still going through photos from our trip to Sweden, reliving all the wonderful gardens we visited. Which is perfect timing because we have a fresh blanket of snow covering the ground outside my winder.

One of the lovely gardens we visited was Rosendals Trädgård in Stockholm. I won’t bore you with text since I took lots of photos and they show the beauty much better than I could write it.

A Day in Stockholm

November 28th, 2016

I’m finally getting back around to going through more of the photos from our trip to Sweden back in September. We drove to Stockholm after spending the night in the nature center at Lacko Slott (see those photos here and the gardens here and here). We arrived late in the evening, checked into the Motel L, ate a delicious dinner at Pipes, a pub right next door to the hotel. The next morning we were up early, called an Uber, and off to the old city we went.

It’s amazing to see this level of history, we have old stuff in Boston, but nothing compared to this! We did a walking tour that we found on-line, it came complete with historic descriptions of all the places we stopped.

The colors, the textures, the cafes, the food, the shops, it was all a very fascinating morning. After visiting the old city, we were off to one of my favorite things from our trip to Sweden, stay tuned for that and more from our trip.

Swedish Community Garden day 4

October 27th, 2016

Are tired of looking at the plots from the community garden in Sweden? I didn’t think so. We spent over an hour walking around these gardens enjoying each plot. Even with all the photos I took, it didn’t even scratch the surface of this fantastic space. Here are more of the lovely plots.

Swedish Community Garden day 3

October 26th, 2016

There was one little plot in the community garden that was by far my favorite, the style and organization of the garden was right in line with my tastes as far as gardens go. There was a lovely little greenhouse, a tiny cottage, hedges, flowers, and vegetables – it was garden perfection! What I loved the most about this garden was the buildings, they were fantastic. As you can guess, the little greenhouse was a favorite and I took loads of photos to hopefully build something similar in my garden.
