We’re here

We arrived late. But the light was still with us so we went out there, to wade in the green landscape.

Everything had grown substantially since our last visit in May. The garden was more like a meadow or jungle, than a lawn and garden. Wild, and beautiful.

But even if I like the thought of using ecological principles to create a garden and don’t want to be narrow-minded about gardening, I guess we’ll have to remove some more grass tomorrow for the practical aspect. And, for the insight that physical work without a gym membership in the garden, both smells and feels better. A bit unexpected Otto was maybe the hardest working one of us out there today.

Tomorrow, Midsummer’s eve.

    känner igen! när vi flyttade till huset fick vi en gammaldags trädgård på köpet, liksom rätt vildvuxen och jag gillart. som tur var ingick även åkgräsklippare men numera spar vi liksom “öar” i träggårn som får växa sej långa. blir fint och mysigt och det långa vajar i vinden och man kan göra liksom stigar mellan gungträd, tvättlina-träd och hallonsnår. :) T gillar också träggårn, idag har vi också burit gräs, kastat in till korna…

    ha en underbar midsommar, på landet! :D

    So so so lovely, so fresh and green. I am very envious of your Summer retreat, though of all your Swedes on Midsummer, hope you had a great time

  20. Veronika says:

    This place looks amazing, I would love to escape somewhere like this for few days :)

  21. Elisabeth says:

    I still find it difficult to believe that this place is ours. Even if I’m here, experience it in every way it feels unreal. To good to be true. Yes, I’m greatful – Yay!

    Emma, vi funderar på det också, att lämna partier vildvuxet. Det är ju så vackert. En sittgräsklippare, fasen vad lyxigt. Vi är inne på vår andra Klippo (begagnade) redan…

  23. Elisabeth says:

    “to wade in the green landscape” sounds just about perfect to me.
