The sky started out overcast, but it finished the day colorful.
In the middle of the covid-19 pandemic.
Red tulips in the setting sun.

The Kaknäs pet cemetery got its start when the dog Nero - companion to the author August Blanche (1811-1868) - was moved from his original burial place to this site near the water on the eastern edge of Gärdet.

I try to visit Hansta at least twice in the spring - once for the blue anemone hepaticas as they pop up through the barren forest floor, and once for the wood anemones as they cover the forest floor in a carpet of white flowers. This year, they were both in bloom when I arrived for my second visit.
