More Summer at Gullringstorp


We are now into Swedish summer. Here in Sweden, the summer is July. This is the month everyone takes vacation and many businesses are closed. Vacations are over in August and the school term begins.  The days are long and the sun shines brightly, long into the night. Here at Gullringstorp, we have sunlight up until about 10 p.m.,  sometimes later if there is no cloud cover.  Everything is in bloom  here at Gullringstorp and the entire area around Gullringstorp is just so beautiful.  All the colors are so vivid. Because our Spring and Summer are so short, everything has to grow at a faster speed than normal.  In a blink of an eye you have new growth, everywhere.

Here is Gullringstorp  and surrounding areas in the Summer:
