Ya, I’m getting into it. Doing the fall digging for next spring is one of my favorite garden chores

A little bit of yesterddys mowed grass doesn’t hurt.

A lot people prioritise things like bigger, faster, mostest and firstest or more money and less work. Not me, quite the opposite – fun, rest, beauty, artistry and recreation (work) are top priority. I get a lot more profit that way.

Not to speak of the health benefits of dirt, and of course the wonderful smell of fresh turned dirt.

Many artists are already here to set up their projects

My own project – The Zen Dirt Garden

Carefully weeded and cultivated!

The garden partybis a good ocassion to do some extra weeding. One crop circle is looking spiffy anyway.

We have plenty of time to get ready for the big garden party.

We didn’t have one last year, but we decided to have another Big Garden Party at Timogarden in Djurby. As usual lots of food, activities, fun, art and music. Everyone is welcome!

Less than 3 weeks to go.

From an earlier year;

After an 18 hour train trip through Sweden and up into the mountains, I finaly made it to my destination – Bjornfjell in Norway. It was, alas, not the place I remembered from a previous trip to Narvik. It was all closed for the season too, so I set out on a new adventure. I found the track-layers trail of old and took off back to Sweden. This area has a lot of history from the time of the Sami to the modern times of mining, train building, WWII, road building and today the trekkng and resort life.

The trail, skirting the train line, was better than expected. It brought me first to the border resort town in Sweden called Riksgränsen. This resort was closed now too, as it is a winter sport area. So I continued.

I was thinking of stoping at this camp site, but it was too early to set up my tent (which I haven’t used for years – not sure if it is good anymore). The weather was great, so I continued to the next resort town Katterjokk where the hikers lodge was open and got a room. Nice place, very inexpensive, so I guess I’ll have to stay one more night and do some hiking around here.

Happy New Year!

This year we got a storm. Alfrida came and picked up the ‘geodesic dome’ Jens built as an art project at our garden party 2 years ago.

And put it down 10 meters away with a crash.

It was well anchored, we thought. Oh well – ephemeral it is.

We make saffron bread for the winter holidays.

More fullkorn flour and less sugar of course.

Ready for dunking.

Perhaps the last flowers from our garden this year.
