"Sköna maj välkommen" ,"Lovely May welcome"
Johan Ludwig Runeberg
In May, Sweden dresses up like to go to a ball. After hiding inside the long dark winter, we all come crawling out from our coverts ready to enjoy the light and the fresh air. It is truly a long wait, but how nature repays us!! Millions of nuances of green, flowers in all colors and birds competing in their yearly singing competition.
Warmer days and evenings makes it possible to have fika outside. Stumpastaken can spread it´s light both indoors and outdoors and the garden starts to give us flowers for our vases!
Picking flowers and making nice arrangements is one of lifes great but little joys. We always have fresh flowers on the table during the blooming season and I use whatever I can find. Sometimes garden flowers and somtimes just anything from the ditch.
Life is too short not to enjoy natures wonders!
Have a lovely May everyone!
