The winter that wasn’t…

A day that only comes once every fourth years: the 29th of February, and a winter that never was. Cooper’s first. Was hoping he would get to experience some new, fluffy snow, but no, not […]

Last day of summer time

Late April evening on the terrace

Indian Summer

It’s mid-October and it’s 20°C. Britt-sommar in Swedish. Something to do with the name-day Britt last Sunday. Indian Summer in English. Whatever you call it it was lovely. In Sannegården the trees are on fire […]
