the Year 2012 in photos


January – Snow but beautiful weather (Arboga river)


FebruaryIn Sweden we have a tradition to eat “Semla” – it’s a ‘fastlagsbulle’ a traditional sweet roll made in various forms.
It consists of a cardamom-spiced wheat bun and is filled with a mix of the scooped-out bread crumbs, milk and almond paste, topped with whipped cream.
