stockholm part two

I'm finally getting around to posting part two of my photos from my trip to Stockholm.  You can see part one here.   For me this year traveling has been particularly therapeutic and healing.  I feel so lucky that I have had the opportunity to do so.   About a couple of weeks before August my mother-in-law asked me if I wanted to show her around Stockholm for her Birthday, how could I say no.  We had such a great time and I did my best to give her a pretty comprehensive tour of this beautiful city. stockholm13

The weather was beautiful and only rained (torrential) a couple of days.   One of the smaller museums that we visited was the Prins Eugen Waldemarsudde Museum located on the island of Djurgarden.  The former home of a Prince, art collector and artist Eugen.  Besides visiting the museum we had a chance to walk around the stunning gardens and forrest surrounding it.

After visiting the Prins Eugen Museum we walked over to Rosendals Trädgard.  Rosendals is a beautiful biodynamic, self-sustaining open garden.

Rosendals grows organic vegetables, plants, and flowers.  Inside Rosendals is a beautiful cafe where you can sit outside on the grass and enjoy the cafe food harvested from the garden.

There is also a large section with row upon row of flowers to pick and take home.  I loved watching the families cutting and picking flowers together.  The weather was perfect, slightly overcast but warm.  It was such a lovely Sunday afternoon.
