It’s funny to think that just over a month ago our gardens were still covered in snow, and our lakes were still partly frozen. Sweden is always slightly behind when it comes to seasons, but this year it seems that spring had barely sprung, when summer arrived!
Yesterday we enjoyed a wonderful picnic ….
Maya and Alfie disappeared into the woods...
.. to pick beautiful flowers...
As they got further away I felt so proud of the way Maya took care of her little brother...
They continued into a little meadow - can you guess what they are looking at?
Mr and Mrs Mallard - they came to say hello!
Maya was fascinated by the shape of these ferns. She surprised me by telling me that they were called 'orm bunka'!
Here were some really big ones!
And there was even time for a little paddling!
