In the Garden With: Fundera Gront

August 9, 2010

Good Morning (or now afternoon as the day has flown by out of control)!  I have another Favorite Things post for you.   I had planned for this series to be wrapping up last week, but I have a few people who are still getting me their additions, so I will post them as they arrive.   I am just back in Massachusetts from California (though still on vacation through next week).  I am all discombobulated and a little jet-lagged, and happy to have a few friends help me get back into the swing.  So I introduce to you Nanna Bylund of Sweden whose blog Fundera Gront is a treasure trove of beautiful and inspiring garden images.   Nanna is a Swedish writer that is studying to be a gardener/garden designer and will finish schooling in October. She lives in Gothenburg, and doesn’t have a garden on her own but does garden two small balcony and one allotment plot.

My Favorite Things: Nanna Bylund

I love my allotment plot.

I am fig tree-nerd. I just collect them, cant help it. Right know I don’t have so many of them, only 11, a lot died when I moved this winter. They are small, I have most of them in my kitchen window. I take cuttings when I am abroad and have them as holiday memories.

I also love watering cans and like to photograph them. And I am a cabbage-photographer… 🙂

My favorite book right now is Utypiske haver til et typehus, 39 haveplaner (C. Th. Sörensen).
One of my favorite gardens is Mandelmanns in Rörum, in the south of Sweden. A paradise.

What do you do to find inspiration?

I find inspiration in books, photographs, films… in the nature.
