  1. What a lovely idea to bring the joy of a garden into the city – so many people live in apartments that it’s a great chance to get out among nature, and having a café to eat some of that delicious produce is even better.

      It was such a happy surprise discovery – I had about 4 hours to whizz around Malmö and was so chuffed to stumble across this 🙂

  2. When I saw those gorgeous peonies they moved me from my grey day slump! Such a brilliant idea to use the garden as a educational element for climate change. We just an an unseasonably late snowstorm yesterday and it once again emphasized how the weather patterns are changing. You are right about the whole concept being overwhelming at times and the Castle Garden of Malmö is a great example of breaking it down into small successful pieces.

      That’s exactly the key message for me, Alison. This garden is very modest and low-profile but I just had to shout about it! Glad the flowers brightened up your day 🙂

    This is beautiful and I love that it breaks up the urban sprawl. We always love finding countryside in or near a town or city. Must be great for people that live nearby too!

      Thanks Anna, Malmö seems quite industrial to begin with, but then you realise it has quite a few parks and other green spaces, so it’s really well-balanced as a city.

    Looks lovely as well as thought provoking. Such a good idea to use the garden to demonstrate how climate change will impact on our lives. Sadly it cant show how many will lose their homes, even lives, in some of the poorest regions of the world but a great initiative nevertheless.

      I know, it all seems so overwhelming at times, but these small-scale enterprises give me some hope that the message is filtering through to all corners.
