Lilac time at Färjenäs

Färjenäs translates to English as Ferry Head. It’s a district of Gothenburg that began life in the late 19th century as a country suburb of the city. Swallowed by the boatbuilding industry in the 20th century, those parts of the area that were not built over were abandoned, and garden plants, especially lilac bushes, ran wild. In the spring, especially at lilac time it was always a beautiful place to visit. Now the industry has moved on and the area is being reclaimed as a residential area. The old gardens at Färjenäs are being turned into a park.
