Om bloggen/About the Blog

I aim to use this blog to keep up my English and maybe give others some insights in Swedish language. It's not a diary - well not quite...

Gran

Gran - Picea abies - spruce is the most common conifer in Sweden. Too common I think this time of the year when the sun stands low.

It is useful though, you can build a house from it for example:

I had difficulties with the English name, in the dictionary it says: (Norway) spruce, spruce, fir, jul-gran: Christmas tree, wood: whitewood.

In Swedish gran and fur (or tall) are different species.
