Sakura ~ Cherryblossom in Kungsträdgården

Last Saturday it was Sakura – Körsbärsblommans dag – blooming cherry blossom trees in Kungsträdgården, Stockholm. It was very beautiful and I enjoyed this event where many people gathered.  Here are some photos from that day.

Taberg – Beautiful mountain view and green medicine

Recently I visited ‘Taberg’ in Småland.
Carl von Linné, the father of plants, named Taberg “the miracle in Småland”.
Not only that you can see almost all of Småland from the top, or rather 70 kilometers in all directions when the weather permits it, but on the sun warm south east side of the mountain you’ll find vegetation from the Alps in Europe — and if you look closer on the Hotel Taberg, it’s unavoidable to miss the link to the Alps. It’s of course here the town has settled.

This day it was a bit stormy and cold, but still worth a visit! I meet some more tourists on the top.
