The garden journey

This is a favourite book, “Trädgårdsresan” by gardener Lars Krantz (text) and architect Lars Holmer (illustrations), Rabén Prisma 1997. The book is about beautiful gardens around Europe and North Africa they have visited, studied and contemplated.


When reading the almost poetic text about flowers, buildings, sunlight, sounds, proportions and colors it feels like I am there, having a calm summer afternoon. And the illustrations make me so envious, I would love to do the same thing, travell around beautiful places, making quick, wonderful drawings of everything I see.

Hi! My name is Lena and I love creative and beautiful things in life. Sometimes it inspires me to photograph and write something about it, hopefully you can enjoy it too. I have previously been freelancing as an illustrator, now I have a day job focused on communication, web development and graphic design for print and web.
