Blue and White Anemone Duet[i]
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.
The Covid-19 pandemic has created a whole new genre for me. Going to places nearby - because I avoid public transit, and avoiding people - because of Covid-19, I'm exploring nearby spots as they have become eerily empty of people.
The Tiny Houses of Westerstraat 54[t]
There used to be an entrance to a courtyard here from which Westerstraat 54-70 were accessible. When the entrance was closed and the street numbers disappeared we got this jump from 54 to 70. A local advertising agency created these small houses and they turned out to be a hit.
Mool Heuk Gil Garden[ab]
Won-Sup Lim came to Sweden in 1975 to spread taekwondo and is with his 9 dan and grand master ranking the highest ranked taekwondo practitioner in Sweden. Mool Heuk Gil (the way of water and earth) is his own martial art, based on 50 years' experience of martial arts.
The water from the Trigrad river falls down a 42 meter waterfall right down the cave. It is said to be the inspiration for the story about Orpheus descending to Hades to find his beloved Eurydice.
