corner view - best kept secrets - stockholm




When reflecting this week's theme I thought about my love for hidden or secret gardens. Gardens invisible from the street. Gardens that surprise you when you open the gate or pass a corner. Sitting in a city garden. Surrounded by flowers and buzzing insects , the sounds of traffic and street life in the background. That's a 'best kept secret' to me.

In my garden the sweet peas are in bloom. Their scent is heavy, sweet and wonderful.
