Between Bird Cherry and Lilac Blossoms ...
2007-05-11 15:49:00
In Sweden, some people think that the time between the Bird Cherry blossoms and the blooming Lila c s is the most beautiful. Everything in nature is fresh and green and lovely and promising ... and this time is right now, the 11th of May. We have lots of nature in Sweden. And in Stockholm. And we are big fans of Mother Nature. And some people say that she, Mother Nature, is our God. Not God

Walpurgis Night Bonfire
2007-05-01 07:44:00
God! it was cold yesterday! Freezing cold we stood there by the bonfire trying to welcome the spring, listen to the singing and be happy. It wasn't easy, when all we wanted was to get back home ... Yesterday it was not only the birthday of our King Carl XVI Gustaf, he's now 61, it was also St. Walpurgis Eve. One of the most tradition-rich and dangerous - yes, dangerous! - times of the Swedish

Outside Berns Salonger in Stockholm, Sweden ...
2007-04-29 19:22:00
Outside Berns Salonger in Berzelii Park the cherry trees are blooming. If you didn't know, Stockholm is a green city, or becoming green very soon. But many of our trees are not OK. At least 4000 trees are damaged in one way or another. So 21 million Sek will be set aside to replant and "renovate" our trees. But this budget will cover only 400 of them. And the elm trees will gradually disappear

Outside my windows the cherry trees are in full blossom. Spring is finally here to stay! In Stockholm.

7600 Stockholmers are very busy ...
2007-04-15 20:50:00
these days. With hard work in their allotment gardens. Preparing the soil, planning what to plant - vegetables, flowers, berries and fruit trees. And growing your own early potatoes for midsummer is a luxury! Your see - we, the Stockholmers, are farmers, or gardeners, at heart. I live in the central part of Stockholm. It takes me 5 minutes by my new bicycle to Stureplan, right in the city center

Momma - new restaurant at Södermalm!
2007-04-02 10:27:00
Restaurant Momma opened last week. Address: Renstiernas gata 30, at Södermalm, Stockholm. On the menu: Traditional Swedish food, updated and "modernized". Basic, rustic, easy-going, sometimes elegant. This is Momma. Sounds interesting! I'm a bit fed up with the international-kitchen-restaurants taking over Stockholm. Updated traditional Swedish restaurants is what we, hmm, I want!

I went to an opening today. The Ann Edholm & Håkan Rehnberg exhibition at Millesgården, Carl Milles studio museum in Lidingö, the island just by Stockholm. Ann Edholm shows gigantic intellectualized paintings, Håkan Rehnberg strict geometrical sculptures and subtle coloured sheets of paintings. But too much thinking to get into their art in my opinion, not much feelings expressed. But as
