This autumn has been a really strange one. It has been an autumn of new ideas, energy and new beginnings. In December my (Stefan’s) new business will be up and running. It will contain the two things I really like – brand design and garden design. Brand design is what I’ve been doing for the last twenty years. And garden design is my passion. Since you’ve reading this you’ve found Trolles Garden. If you’re interested in branding, take a look at www.trollelindros.com . It has also been an autumn of personal loss and sadness. All put together in a strange mix. When things are complicated, there is nothing like getting out in the garden, pruning, digging, weeding. Participate. Beeing.
If summer lasted all September, Ocober’s been autumnal and cloudy. Every autumn I’m so happy that we’ve put effort in planting perennials that flower almost till the snow puts an end to it. Bistorta/Persicaria amplexicaulis is wonderful, flowering non-stop from July and on. Japanese anemones, Asters, Actea simplex and Eupatorium maculatum are other favourite late performers. Not to mention the Prunus sargentii’s final firework.
If this had been a ordinary autumn, we would have had a November with a slowly greying and decaying garden. Not this November. A couple of days ago we had a massive snowfall, covering all Stockholm with 40 cm of snow. And suddenly it is winter.
