This winter I’ve become very fond of and fascinated by sleeping gardens and greenhouses. Still, peaceful – sleeping in wait for spring and summer. These photos were taken a couple of weeks ago. I had been in a hurry all day, but took some time off in one of the big parks nearby the University of Stockholm and the stress vanished pretty fast.Seeing this big – it is monumental – greenhouse with this enormous glass surface was like stepping in to a secret place, a saga. I didn’t meet anyone when I walked around – partially ploughing through snow – during the hour I was there. I warmly recommend visiting parks and gardens during winter. It is a special experience that works like bliss for the stressed soul of the “modern” human being. Turn off the phone – disconnect – and wear boots that makes it possible to plough into the snow in the non-ploughed parts. Bring a camera and a little thermos of coffee. People have complained about this winter -too cold and too much snow. I persist in saying: I prefer this kind of winter to a muddy, slushy one any day.
