Top of the world

Spring is here! Blue sky, a strong sun and garden work. And Svea with her sun glasses on top of “the world”, ok, not the world, but the roof.

At school Svea has worked on this:

I really had to laugh about the guy with the tire-hairdo! Wow!

It’s the time for back ache and planning what to plant.
Waiting to be filled with plants
And of course for reading outside. Always the best thing to do!
