#MENSFASHION #LFWMSS18 #CHRISTOPHER RAEBURN ETC

Sorry guys for not keeping my promise of next day blogging. One of my favourites on the catwalk at LFWMSS18 was as usual Christopher Raeburn. Sporty, wearable, recyclable, conscious fashion for both men and women. This season a bit more daring than usual.

More Christopher Raeburn who uses recyclable and reused materials. Here in grey with a new take on the bomber jacket.

Transparent for boys! With a clear sporty look and the sweet mouse on the top! More soon from LFWMSS18 and from my beautiful island of Gåsö where I am now!

#CIRCLES, #SLATE AND #BALLS #CHELSEAFLOWERSHOW2017

Circles! A reoccurring theme this year at Chelsea Flower Show. This is The Breast Cancer Now Garden "Through the Microscope". designed by Ruth Willmott Associates. And of course the garden symbolise breast cancer seen through the microscope!
Circles drawing you into Raymond Blanc´s private garden.

Cut flowers arranged in circles in the Great Pavilion.

Balls of rattan and Alliums in the Chelsea Gardens.

Lacquered rings, decorative in a small garden.

A garden full of roses all year round. Metal roses in a ball!

Slate, in a ball etc, a much used stone at Chelsea this year.

More stones, not sure if they are slate, but could be...more from Chelsea to come soon!

#CHELSEAFLOWERSHOW2017 #RHS #COLOURFUL

Went to Chelsea Flower Show yesterday and was happy to find so much colour! On the flowers, on the walls etc. This garden was influenced my Mexico.

Chelsea in Bloom, a project to save rare animals in Africa etc, invited shops and businesses around Sloane Square to participate with a "Safari" theme. A lot of monkeys, giraffes, elephants etc. I will soon write a blog just about this project.

A mix of colour, the rainbow in the same border, a multicolour trend is arising...

Lovely new species of orchids, I love orchids!

The queen of colour, Tricia Guild, had cooperated with Annika Rice and gardener Sarah Raven to create this colourful and happy garden for BBC2.

The Silk road had inspired to this Chinese garden. A bit kitschy but sort of fun and happy! Not quite my cup of tea!

More Safari...and more from Chelsea soon...

#WILDGARLIC #WILDGARLICPESTO #RAMSLÖK





WILD GARLIC grows in the shadow of the forest. You can find it in England and Wales, and in the south of Sweden(Ramslök)and also in many other parts of Europe. In the British Isles it grows in the same habitats as Bluebells and they are together considered to be ancient woodland indicator species. The wild boar loves it and will dig up the roots! You are sure to have found it when you sense the significant garlicy/oniony smell in the air.

It is the leaves that you use for cooking. Rinse them and use for pesto, soup etc.

The flower is beautiful in itself.

I made pesto from my harvest! Chop 100 g of Wild Garlic leaves and add 50 g of toasted (optional) pine nuts with 50 g of grated Parmesan cheese. Add 100 ml of olive oil and blend. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I just happened to have a lime green Margareta bowl and a matching blender (Philippe Starck for Philips ca 1996)to work with.
The blender "Billy" working...
The Wild Garlic Pesto is ready and put in jars. Will keep for weeks in the fridge.
The flowers I used as decorations in my home!
Wild Garlic decorating my lounge, and not smelly at all. Seems like the onion odour comes from the leaves!
