Flowers for you

“I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it.”
― William Shakespeare

A good weekend to everybody!

Hibiscus flowers in January

“I was for a while troubled with the haunting fear that if I handled the flower freely its bloom would fade—the sweet charm of freshness would leave it. I did not know then that it was no transitory blossom, but rather the radiant resemblance of one, cut in an indestructible gem.”

― Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Välkommen höst!

“Hösten är den andra våren när varje löv är en blomma.” – Albert Camus

The good fragrance of bread at Skansen

Skansen, Bageri

From my sketchbook.

This little bakery is a familiar place for those, who enjoy a walk in the open air at Skansen. This cosy corner is where to find crisp bread, soft golden croissants and typical fragranced buns. Add a warm cup of coffee and enjoy nature in Skansen!

Shades of blue

Plumbago

When we build … let it not be for present delights nor for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for, and let us think … that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say as they look upon the labor, and the wrought substance of them, See! This our fathers did for us! – John Ruskin
