About three hours south of Stockholm is Bankeryd, the second largest locality situated in Jönköping Municipality of Sweden.

The area is primarily farms, and typical Swedish red homes. The area is green for as far as the eye can see, and while you drive the open roads, you will commonly see the buttercup flowers in blossom this time of year.

According to, “In the low altitude areas – vegetation is richer than in the high altitude areas. The glacier buttercup (Ranunculus glacialis) is a mountain plant that grows between rocks in high altitude areas – preferably 1000 mamsl (meters above mean sea level), a very barren biotope.”
But more than anything, it is just plain beautiful.
