It’s been eons I have been away from writing. Ok, may be not that long. Writing snippets for my Instagram posts took the better of my time. (Does that even count? Haha :)). But honestly we all did get caught up in the unforeseen, with this deadly pandemic. I hope everyone is holding up well. Today I feel inspired to write and share with you my readers, the beauty I have been witnessing all around in Stockholm. The seasons of Scandinavia have always elicited the artist in me, propelling me to get out there in the nature and create some memories to keep for a lifetime.
And if I am completely honest, this diversion is keeping me from constantly thinking about the trying times my friends and family are experiencing back home in India. I pray for everyone to get back the pink of their health and the spring of their lives very soon.
In my earlier posts I have expressed my thoughts on the enchanting autumns this place unfolds each year, and have also taken opportunities to share the winter experiences, but never got a chance to share what a garden Stockholm becomes during spring! I realized we were always travelling to other countries at this time of the year. Being in Sweden this year gives me a reason to explore more, with all the heart, the place where I live.
I have been taking a lot of spring walks during past couple of weeks, looking for some blooming trees and budding flowery corners. Up until 2 weeks ago, I didn’t find a single leaf of the trees (I live in Stockholm! It takes long for the weather to warm up :)) While the temperatures are still quite low, the city is starting to be blessed with some spring foliage.
Sharing some captures with you all.
How does spring look in your city? Would love to see!
