A good fit

Hopefully you won’t have missed me while I was away recently – 2 months in northern Europe. As I’m settling back in (and it’s raining today), it seemed a good chance to start sharing some photos.

Working in a Stockholm community garden (notwithstanding interruptions by nosy foreigners). The few beds in this square near the National History Museum were set up by the Swedish National Property Board in association with the Swedish Allotment Association. The ‘holders’ working here said they can grow what they like.  The signboard says: ‘This project is a reminder of the country house that was located in this area from the 17th century until 1830 when the land was taken over by the military.’ Photo: Sandra Simpson
