Six On Saturday in Stockholm

I think you can tell a lot about a city by their plants and where they choose to have them. The cities that don’t have them look tired, worn out and very very drab. Not only do the plants and flowers make the cities more charming and welcoming, I think their presence just boosts the city dwellers morale as well. I know if I lived in a high rise apartment in a densely populated spot I would want to have a cheer or two and a touch of color when I went outside. Here are some of the spots of color and green to be found in Stockholm……….     Masses of wave and color here!

Stockholm Harbor View

Not only is the water beautiful to look at and certainly all the boats, the flowers are there for the land lovers too.

I was surprised and just had to photograph this lone fir tree in the middle of the busy residential and shopping area!

The Fir Tree, Stockholm, Sweden

Many window boxes were decorated with stand out colors and texture…….

Old Town Stockholm: Street View

If you read my previous post you saw Schweizers! Is this where they get their oranges? Ha Ha!

Old Town Stockholm: Paganini Restaurant

Any restaurant with plants in the window gets my attention. Peppers for the Italian meals! And rosemary for remembrance……I’ll remember Stockholm for sure!
