After rain comes .... ?

It's been raining cats and dogs all night and most of the day. We'd made plans for a second trip to Jaervsoe (Järvsö), but the original plan was changed a little bit because of the rain.

After a visit to the local village church, we ended up at 'Café Lill-Babs' in Jaervsoe for coffee and cakes.

Born as Barbro Margareta Svensson in 1938 in Jaervsoe, Lill-Babs established herself as an entertainer, TV-profile etc. from 1953. Her family runs the café at 'Långhans' which - to my understanding - is Lill-Babs' birthplace. A very beautiful house at the foot of the mountain Oejeberget (Öjeberget) in Jaervsoe.



Sitting under a huge baldakin enjoying our coffee and the spectacular view. You can see how the rainclouds are embrasing the trees.



And here is Lill-Babs. The photo is from her official page http://www.lill-babs.com


Cheers,
Asta

Oh, it's been raining lots here in Pennsylvania too. I like to say it's been raining dogs.

Your pictures are very pretty.

Purrs,

Lucy

It appears to me that your day turned out very well in spite of the rain. Lil Babs is a very fine-looking woman and I can see why you enjoyed your say at her cafe!

Gorgeous scenery!

We were off to take some photos this afternoon, but a cold front (which means it will only get to 87 degrees F today!) and rain moved in so we're at home puttering on the computers.

Have a great Sunday!

Thank you Lucy. I'm glad you enjoyed.

And thank you Jacob. I hope your Sunday will be a bit warmer-:)

Lill-Babs is fantastic. And still going very strong. I admire her.

Cheers,
Asta
