Back again

I´m back from a very relaxing vacation in Sweden.
I don´t want to bother you with a lot of photos
but I do have few I would like to share.

one of the days we drove from Gotherburg to the little town Trollhättan
situated at the buttom of the big lake Vänern
there´s lots of locks as they dam up the vater from the lake
to make electricity - anyway

this is how it looks beyond the lock
at a certain time everyday the let the water through

and this is how it looks only 2 minuts after the
opening of the 3 locks

they have the locks open for about 6 minuts and then it´s all over again.
This is how it would look with no locks
amazing huh...

okay - so

we visited the botanical garden too
and here´s a few pics.

these are big water lilies
I have never ever seen anyone that big before

beautiful cabbage

the herb garden

and lots of beautiful and special flowers.


back to work on the bears.
Need to finish a few before the fair
and I came back with a long list with new ideas for
other creations too - can´t wait to get started.

Wishing you all a wonderful sunday
and thank you so much for peeking in today

Tina ♥♥♥

Welcome back! I'm glad you had a nice vacation. The photos of the locks are amazing. Reminds me of the poem, "The Leak In the Dike."

Your garden pics are pretty too.

Nice to see you back here too! Looks like you had a wonderful time! Sweden is on my wish list too, but my Love is fearful of bad weather in summer. But your pictures have convinced me, I must find a way to get us there....
