It's snowing again

It's snowing again!

The view from a window on the second floor here at Bergdalen in Tungelsta this afternoon. It started to snow one hour ago. The yellow house on Kvarnvägen (Mill Road), is known as The Rose Garden. 100 years ago a gardener called Gustav Andersson bought some land there. He was followed by my great grandfather who bought the property across the road, from where I shot this photo. Same place a little greener from May 2008. The greenhouses on that property are long gone. Replaced by apartments and a retirement home.

Lovely photograph.
The history of the place is so interesting. It's very similar a house with a similar view in Hochdorf, Switzerland on Rosengartenstrasse. We lived there in 1989/90 and the houses were part of a farm originally. The farmer's field was on the back of the house & was still used for growing grass/hay (& was fertilized with liquid manure |:o). On the other side, a 3 story building with condominiums went up while we were there.

Thanks Tash.

Ha! Good one Kris. It's been raining non-stop since I took this photo. Haven't seen the sun for more than a week.
