Can we say SWOON?? Today’s photos are from Lotta Lindekrantz’s beautiful garden in SWEDEN!

Lotta says, “Here is some pictures from my garden near Gothenburg, Sweden. An old garden that I try to make my own without ruin it to much! 🙂 A place for me and my family to hang out in. And we love it! Welcome to my blog to see more of my garden: http://solrum2.blogspot.com.”

You know I’m a sucker for a glimpse of a faraway land, and this garden is so charming and pretty, too, Lotta. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

    This garden is sheer poetry. Lotta is an artist, not only in the garden, but with the camera as well.

    Magical place. The only thing more beautiful than your garden are your babies.

    Fabulous. The garden is amazing. I love the play of colour throughout. I've always been a sucker for grasses, and yours are lovely. Nice shot of the kids in the garden.

    Lotta, your garden is the very definition of charming and lovely...so many idyllic spots. No wonder it is so beloved by you and family. You are obviously a very worthy owner of a garden that has proven to be timeless.

    How truly beautiful, especially the children in the garden. I love the sweet peas and stones. It's makes me lonesome for a colder climate. Thank you so much for your pictures.

    This is so beautiful, rocks and water, art without artifice, and a talented photographer to share it all. I'm especially captivated by the contrasting textures, yummy! You've given me some great ideas, Lotta, thank you so much. Now I just need some big rocks ;-)!

    This garden is so charming. Wonderful use of stone and tucked -in plants and two little adorable children enjoying the space! Thank you for sharing the photos!

    love your gardens, especially the mixtures of flowers,rocks and grasses. Brought me back to my visit to Sweden - what a green, lush land with lots of dedicated gardeners!

    Lotta is lucky to have inherited such a lovely mature property and she is certainly doing a grand job of maintaining its character. I like that little out building with its typical Scandinavian tile roof, and of course the flag of Sweden is so apropos. Thank you for sharing.

    Gorgeous! I love the brunnera flanked on either side by the purple heuchera. Definitely going to use that one. Thanks for sharing!

    Tractor1 - read your reply and I agree with you about being frank and direct. I hate candy coating as well (unless it's actually ON candy - lol) That being said some people don't take kindly to "frank and direct" - it's all about knowing your audience. It's easier to swallow positive criticism than (what other might persieve) negative (even tho in your mind you're trying to be helpful) JMO from working 28 years with State workers and (going into now) 17 years as a Boy Scout Leader

    LOVE your kitty!!!!!

    I was just in Sweden last week. Lovely gardens everywhere. Lotta, you have a treasure.

    Just looked at your blog and oh my such beautiful photos and gardens!
    I love the rock walls and vibrant colors!
    I wish I knew swedish to read your captions lol.

    Thank you all for your nice words!

    To all you new readers from foreign countries. Thank you for visiting my blog and viewing my photos.
    From now on you will also be able to read the texts (and probably get a good laugh) using the translation tool I've added on the left side. Sometimes it generates quite funny sentences.
    In a "swenglish" manner.
    But please have a little patience and some imagination and you should probably be able to figure out what I write.

    Have fun.

    See you!
