Heavenly Hammocks, Hummus and Hippies!

I haven’t written for a few days due to general life taking over (it happens sometimes…), but I must just tell you about one of our weekend trips…

We went to Rosenhill Trädgård (Rosenhill Gardens) on Sunday. Unfortunately the website really does this place no justice, as so often seems to be the case, because this was a really wonderful place. Started by a group of alternative people in the ’70s, after they travelled the world looking for another lifestyle, and came back to Sweden realising that people were the same allover the world – they decided to start up these ‘gardens’, and lead the way to living their own life alternatively from their home land.

Extremely happy chickens...

The essential hippy van...

'Free snails - pick yourself'

Dried bits and bobs

Happy chilled out kids...

Delicious homemade food (hummus included)..

Fantastic furniture ...

The 'ladies' ...

Waiting to be juiced...

Homemade slide (or an easy way to leave the cafe)...

Roof tile snake...

Hammock heaven...

Relaxation time...

... or not ...

A dragon in the tree...

Succulent sunflowers...

Wild and free...

Although given the name of ‘gardens’, I would describe it as more. An organic farm, a place to give your belongings and take away something in return, a wonderful organic cafe, a place to take your apples and make them into ‘must’ (a non-alchoholic cider), a place to experience and buy a homemade hammock, and a place to meet others and enjoy the creative and relaxed environment.

We all loved this place – there was always something interesting and unexpected to look at – we will definitely be visiting again!
