A new found love in the fruit department: meet the Plumcot. The Plumcot is a hybrid between a plum and a apricot. I had no idea this fruit even existed and I really love it! Only the name is adorable but it really tastes nice as well.

I also found this little baby oak in growing on a rock in the forest. It would never had made it there so I simply took it with me. I hope it makes it on my balcony instead.

Today autumn really arrived here in Stockholm, gray skies heavy with rain. The flowers and plants on my balcony looks a bit sad and I'm dreaming back to early this summer when everything was new and fresh. Here are the photos from earlier this summer! Sigh!

Tomatoes from our balcony! It feels very luxurious to eat home grown vegetables! I also just love the little bowl that I got on a trip to Essaouira, Marocko. Perfect for tomatoes!

Unfortunately I managed to broke on of my favourite thrifted plates. But then again there is glue, I can mend it and use it under flowerpots instead. And I get happy just by looking at these lovely chives growing on our balcony. They taste wonderful as well!

This summer I bought a cute jasmine plant to make our room a bit more cosy when I worked in northern China. It smelled lovely and I wanted to bring it with me back to Sweden but that was not possible. Before leaving it in the good care of a friend I took a cutting that I brought with me back home.It has been in water since August and the first two months nothing happened, but then a small root started to grow! Now it is quite a big root, but I think I'll wait a while before trying to put it in soil.

Anyone who has any growing tips for me?
