Fyn is the area of Denmark where my husband comes from. It’s a lovely area, a small island, with rich history and scenery that inspired Hans Christian Andersen to write. Here are four photos that I took recently while we were clearing out my mother-in-law’s house, who recently passed away.
If wishes were houses, this house would be mine. It was for sale about 10-years ago, and I think I’ve missed my opportunity to own it. I’ve admired it for decades. It’s set on a small knoll with a forest behind it and a lake with a wildlife reserve at the front. To the left is a small road, and on the other side of the road is a harbour filled with sail boats. This photo is for my friend, Joanna: This is where I’d live if I could.
This was my husband’s grandmother’s farm house, which is a short bike ride from my mother-in-law’s house. When his family owned it, it was an apple farm.
Fields of daffodils in bloom near my mother-in-law’s house.
And another field a short distance from the one above. There are fields all around Vester Aaby with daffodils right now.
I hope that you enjoyed this brief glimpse into a small corner of Denmark.
