The Unshovelled Alleyways

Häckgränd

Spjutgränd

Kulgränd


This is Färglådorna, (the color boxes). A housing area in Tungelsta built back in the early 1970's. It looks like the people that live here don't know how to use a snow shovel, or that they perhaps have shovelled enough snow for a few years already this winter. The alleyways here have names like Javelin Alleyway, Shot Put Alleyway and Hurdling Alleyway. I think this is an area where you have to get along with your neighbours as they live kinda close! Before this area was built there where a number of plant nurseries here. They are all gone now. The last one closed a few years ago. Remember that snowed in car I showed you a while back. It was parked next to Shot Put Alley on Runner's Path.


Skywatch Friday.

Excellent composition, Steffe. You're probably so bored with it after such a long winter but I just want to fling myself in that snow.

I think I'm going to open up a snowblower store in Haninge!

Jacob said...

What an interesting community! What's strange, though, is that it appears NO ONE has shoveled their walkway...maybe they're all retired and don't need to get out and go anywhere...still...

I feel tired already, Steffe. Man, that is a lot to shovel.
It might interest you to know that some of the neighbors in my densely Scandinavian neighborhood favor that particular yellow/gold for painting their wood frame houses. This gives me an idea. When this rain stops I am going to photograph one for you that I think if particularly nice.
We've had no snow this winter at all, but lots of rain and mild temps. Just this week the temperature has dropped and there were a few snow flakes seen coming down Monday morning on the top of our hill, but they never hit the ground.

That looks like some stubborn snow. I fear it will still be present in patches in May. Here, too, despite several warm days, the snow seems undiminished.

Very true Cara.

Should be an easy way to make some money Leif.

Probably both young and old here so I'm guessing they are either lazy or out skiing.

I will wait for that photo Kim. I think I prefer snow before rain!

Who is Steffi?

Maybe they all went South. I know I would.

You have more snow there than we have now. We had some thunder and lightening last night and pouring rain. Maybe we can go outside today and have some old-fashioned sunshine.

These are very nice pictures. I wonder what the same areas look like when it it hot outside and the people who are living so close together have their windows and doors open and one neighbor is playing religious music and the other is playing rock and roll?

If they have disputes I suppose everyone knows about it.

Gwyn said...

I wish we had this much snow. I agree with you on the snow shovel.
