Cycling through Malmö, it’s exciting to see all the bright green leaves spring to life on the trees after many months of dormancy. And across town, allotment season has begun! I was amazed to discover that Swedish allotments often have ‘kolonistuga’ – small inhabitable cottages in which you can live from late spring to early Autumn, providing a country oasis in the heart of the city. Do you have something similar in your country?
What a perfect place to tend to blooms, maybe grow a few veg, sip rosé and sleep over the summer, don’t you think? His faithful four-legged friend Charlie certainly looks content!
And just in case the Swedish weather gods aren’t playing nicely (fair chance!) – there’s always the wood burning stove too!
Would you like to see more allotment cottages today? I’ve featured quite a few in the past:
I hope these lovely spaces have filled you with inspiration today.
