Sunday tea, infused with mint, and flower petals.

The greatest of joys: food in abundance.
Once again I enjoyed a very magnificent evening at @sqbarrestaurang .
Apparently the menu changes not only every season, but every week!
So we got our hands (literally!) on
- Italian charcuteries with colorful tomatoes 🍅
- herrings (in mustard and onion sauce) and Swedish cheese (I enjoyed this dish very much, simple is sometimes the best)
- Devil fish carpaccio (very delicate) with chives mayo.
- a steak with the size fitting for two men I’d say accompanied with the best fries in town.
- Homemade pistachio ice cream (I don’t even like pistachios, but this one was too good to be true!)
- Fresh strawberries with baked rhubarb and white asparagus ice cream. Probably first and last time I try asparagus ice cream.

Enjoying the food at nine in the evening, the air is velvety warm, sea is shimmering, feeling as if we were not really in the northern hemisphere, but somewhere on the Mediterranean - this feeling is priceless .

Gardens and flowers have a way of bringing people together, add some freshly baked bread and cakes - and what more could you ask for on a summer day?
@rosendalstradgard are growing plants that are later used in the cafe and bakery. 🌱#sthlmcafeswithnorrskenet
All of the cultivation is organically grown, including composting, crop rotation and using manure on site.
We were invited to spend an afternoon in the shade to try out their summer fika-menu.
- Bean mousse on a rye bread sandwich (topped with various garden flowers) was a great light summer lunch alternative.
- The crumbly and moist sponge cake tasted velvety of blueberries and almond flour.
- The raw food balls were very generous in both size and nuts. Rolled in rose petals (from their very own rose garden).
- The tea was an infusion of fresh mint leaves handpicked from the garden, utterly delicious.
I love to come to Rosendals at any month really, the garden constantly changes and there’s beauty in seeing it flourish and then wither every season, eternity is always present in the world of gardening.

Home made Nutella generously smeared on a cinnamon bun is a pleasure few people know about

rose gold off to dance 📀

the garden is blooming and so am I

I don’t need much.. just a flowering meadow, freshly brewed tea, dainty pastries and a book 📚

how lucky I am to have breakfast in my mothers garden in July

I’ll happily spend time in any place in Europe that makes me feel like I’m Sophia Loren in the 50s

They say that the beautiful Bay of Kotor, is Europe’s most southernmost fjord
