About an American family with a summer cabin in the Stockholm archipelago. Information on island life, Swedish culture, design and building trends. And toilets.

I was texting with Annika and Olle this morning. (Actually, I was using WhatsApp, but I still say "texting" just as one says "taping" when they're recording a TV show on a DVR without tape. But I digress.)
I sent them a snapshot of my backyard in Texas:
Lots of ice and snow, 28°F.
They responded with a couple photos of their own:
Green grass and flowers, 36°F.
It's been a mild and warm winter in Sweden. Not good for keeping the mosquito and tick population down! But as Rutger told me, there's plenty of time for snow and cold in March, and April, too.
