Raised in Boston, remade in Sweden

Stockholm garden sculpture: The Jumpoline.

My list of nevers include a growing number of events which have evolved to “did that, seen that and doing it again tomorrow”.

The trampoline (or known in our home as the ‘jumpoline’, coined of childish Swenglish) was a former “never” and current “got that”. The jumpoline takes up a prime location on the front lawn. Though, I feel modest comfort knowing, we’re not alone.

Views of greater from Google Earth demonstrate that there are a great number of circular objects adorning the grass gardens of many a plot of greater Stockholm.

Which is why finding this ad up at the Karlberg station tickled me.

Loosely translated: “Garden sculpture: The most common ornament of Stockholm outside the city center of the 2000s.” “The new DN, with its eyes on Stockholm.”
