Falu Red

Falu Red

My mother calls this place Särla. For many years Särla was hidden up a gravel road at Ålsta in Tungelsta. No one could see this house from the road. That's going to change now as new roads and many houses will be built around here. I don't think the owners are wery happy about that, but that's life. Falu Red, if you havent guessed it is the red paint. I meet one of their closest neighbours on my visit. I belive he could be a Badger Face Sheep.

Bigger photo.

Lovely photograph!

Such a classic colour. Whenever I see a wooden house with that colour the image "Scandinavia" immediately gets evoked for me.

A friend just told me that a long time ago one, of the previous owners was known locally as Lasse i Skogen, or Lasse in the Forest.

I like this photo and the story behind it. I also like the picture of the sheep.

I wanted to thank you for your visits to my blog. Thanks.

This is a beautiful sight. A blooming tree by windows must be a fabulous surrounding!
