Snow on Kungsgatan

 


 

IMG_3829This is a memory from the  winter of 2014. Mercifully we don´t usually get many days of snow every year so most of the winter the ground is mostly bare. Snow usually disappears after a few days. Scania, the most southern county of Sweden, that once belonged to Denmark usually only have circa five days a year with snow winter is usually a grey affair. As snow usually is so rare, the children go out with their toboggans as soon as the snow starts and use their sleds until the very minute the snow has returned to water.

The picture is taken on the boulevard Kungsgatan in Malmö, Sweden.


Old ferry harbour in Malmö

The restaurant boat Prince Bernhard reflected in the water of Malmö Harbour in 2010. This is the quay where the ferries for Copenhagen where moored in the days before the Öresund bridge between Sweden and Denmark.

Winter on Kungsgatan

Kungsgatan winter 2012

This is a memory from the  winter of 2012. Mercifully we didn´t get many days of snow that year so most of the winter the ground was bare. In a poem scanian poet Gabriel Jönsson says that “Winter shows her grey cloth”. Freely translated from and perhaps incorrectly remembered, in swedish “Vintern hänger upp sin gråa räcka”. And Scania, the most southern county of Sweden, that once belonged to Denmark usually only have circa five days a year with snow so winter is a grey affair. As snow usually is so rare, the children go out with their toboggans as soon as the snow starts and use their sleds until the very minute the snow has returned to water.

The picture is taken on the boulevard Kungsgatan in Malmö, Sweden. The statue is of Flora made by Jonas Fröding. Flora originally had a flower in her hand but she has lost it.
