A whiff of Sweden

©Ingrid Booz Morejohn

A whiff of Sweden came into my life today and will most definitely stay there for the next twelve months. I'm not speaking of the scent of Swedish meatballs served at the local IKEA here in Chengdu but the smell of spring lupins, summery, salty sea breezes, golden autumn leaves and glittering, "rimfrosty" winters. Can you guess? My friend Annika B sent us this year's Sweden calendar with the most fantastically wonderful pictures. Infinitely more beautiful than these meatballs. Thanks Annika! The best one yet. I have to admit I do miss Sweden a bit....
