Pick-Your-Own organic flowers at Rosendals trädgård

Pick you own flowers, pay at the plant shop, 30:- per hg.

I can't believe we'll be back in Scandinavia in just a couple of weeks; only for a short vacation, but still. While browsing my last years crop of photos, I found some that I'd ignored as boring earlier, but now think are completely fine. Maybe the long winter has changed my eyes...
Anyway, Rosendals Trädgård is a favorite haunt of many Stockholmers, an organic oasis on an island just outside the city center. Besides getting your thirst and hunger deliciously silenced, whole fields of bright annuals wait pickers to carry them away against a small payment. It is amazing to see what people choose  for their bouquets; some go for one single variety, some create a firework of everything they can find. I wonder if their homes and lives reflect their choices?
