A lovely, sunny (mostly), summery day! And my day off. I took a walk in a nearby allotment garden with friends A and P.
This allotment garden was founded in early 1930s, and it has not only plots, but cottages as well. It looks like most of the cottage-owners don't grow many vegetables nowadays, but mostly flowers. The gardens are lush and secluded, the cottages tiny and cute, and some people live there for the whole summer. I don't really dream about a summer cottage*, but having a tiny cottage in the city sounds like fun!** In my cottage I'd have quilts and flower patterned china - all those things which are a tad too romantic for me to really live with every day would be perfect for a cottage like this!
*We have my great-grandparent's house on an island, and that's a lot work in itself.
**If I had, say, an extra 30,000 to 60,000 euros. Which sounds just insane, knowing my friend bought a small apartment in Northern Finland for 57,000.
