About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

  2. Whenever I see a hydrangea, I melt. They are such appeal,and simply make me feel joyous. I like the way they are in the foreground, and lead you into the garden. Nicely captured. Happy Phoneography Challenge.

    This is a beautiful photograph of a gorgeous garden. Is it your garden? It is indeed a wonderful shot for Sally’s challenge this week. Your work is beautiful! I am 1/4 Icelandic but have never followed up on doing the Scandinavian folk art I’ve seen since my childhood. Now you have me intrigued… I might like to do some! Thank you for stopping by my blog so I could meet you!


    • Hi Firebonnet, I am likewise pleased you visited me here. I love the traditional arts of Scandinavia as you might have guessed, and it is not difficult to get started. But beware, it can be very addictive!! ( in a nice way). I am visiting Scandinavia this year ( not iceland this time, however), and will visit many private studios and collections of Norwegian Rosemaling. I can’t wait. Have a great day and thanks for the lovely compliments.


    • I am afraid that it is not my garden, but a beautiful one located in the outskirts of Wellington, New Zealand


  5. That makes me long for spring and summer and flowers and cottages and…it’s started snowing again. 🙂



    • Hi Janet, I am sorry that it is snowing again. But, you know, those of us that don’t ever have snow at home, often wish to see that. I guess the grass is always greener somewhere else…. One can always get warm by exercising even in snow. It is much harder to cool the body down in the summer. I would rather have snow than sweat!! Thanks for your lovely comment. I appreciate it. 🙂
