Dags att plocka fram trollsländorna som jag fick ifjol.
My dragonflies got to come out to the garden and hang this year also.
They’re especially lovely when the last rays of sunlight hit the crystals in the evenings.
Trollsländorna gjorde min mamma av kristaller, pärlor och ståltråd. Perfekta för just vår trädgård tycker jag!
My mother made these using crystals, glass beads and metal strings. I just love them, they’re perfect for our garden! The dragonfly is called Trollslända in Swedish, which could be translated as magic spindle (or troll’s spindle- troll has two different meanings in Swedish). When I was little I thought they looked like they stepped out of a Nordic folk tale, and the name is really fits that. Maybe they spin clothes for the fairies?
