Beyond the Lone Islands

Friday, 16 April 2010


One of our earliest and most beloved wild spring flowers is the Hepatica. It is not all that common, in some parts of Sweden it is under a special protection law (i.e. you're not allowed to pick it). You usually have to go to special places in the countryside to find it; it doesn't grow just anywhere. So I was pleasantly surprised to find it growing in a spot next to a stone wall in a cemeterery in town that I was walking across the other day. (Not planted on a grave; although I suppose it might have spread from a plant someone brought some time).

Oh, these are charming and lovely! I love the way you've captured all the different shades and shadows of blue in the second photo! Did I ever ask you how your blog got it's title? It's rather haunting.

Ginny, the origin of my blog title is in the text in the blog header, and in my very first blog post here.
