It was my mother’s birthday this weekend, so after obligatory cake breakfast, we headed out to a gorgeous garden center called Slottsträdgården Ulriksdal to get some flowers for the garden. They had a pick-your-own garden, for both vegetables and for flowers. And what better excuse for picking your own bouquet than for a birthday!
I was tempted to buy these polka beetroots which are striped inside. They are beautiful especially when cut in slim slices, but I don’t really pickle things so would have no use for them. And boiling beetroot is a bit of a pain. The piles of pumpkins made me long for Halloween. I hope there will be the same craze for dressing up at parties in Sweden. We’ll soon find out!
Two happy ladies about to have lunch at the resturant in the general garden center area. (Vegan morrocan tomato soup, it was epic) I will have to make another post just about the remainder of the centre as it could get a bit intense with the amount of floral shots I like to take!
