Winter Sky

Winter Sky

Had you walked down this road at Skogsekeby in Tungelsta a few years ago you would have seen the greenhouses at Rosenborg. The first gardener at Rosenborg was Hjalmar Pettersson. He later sold the business to a man called Englund. After that the Stockhaus family took over the plant nursery. The last gardener to work here was Mårten Strandell, who today lives with his family in the red house. Today a number of new houses are been built here and the area is known as Ekeby Villakvarter. The two houses you see in this photo were built two years ago. I have a photo of that here.

Skywatch Friday.

Blue skies and snow make a perfect combination. A very pretty scene.

I suppose this is the last place you would want to live if you didn't like snow and cold. It is, from your pictures, beautiful in the summer time.
