Till min syster – For my sister

Kvällens luft innehåller löfte om vårens ankomst. Vårluften har en speciell atmosfär och jag kommer då alltid att tänka på min favoritsång om våren. Dan Anderssons Till min syster.

The air to night promise Spring soon. It’s a special atmosphere in that Spring air at night. I always come to think about my favorite song in Spring time.

Sofia Karlsson sings To my sister in Swedish. I think she maybe using a DADGAD guitar but I’m not sure, it can be a regular one too. I’m not a music genius. I just know that she has a DADGAD guitar and have written a song about that guitar.

It’s a poem with tunes written buy the famous Swedish poet Dan Andersson.

Here’s a translation of the lyrics to English

I’m so ready for Spring. Are you?
Or do you wait for another season to come?



Snow fun

This is a good thing  about snow. Morning started cold, minus 8C, but when Spring sun came out the snow became art material 🙂 we had a lot of fun making small snowmen and other things with the snow.

A tiny little snowman

Snowball tree 🙂

Snow Yoda

And a nother magic creature 

The Christmas goat beacame a unicorn goat today 😉

So today was a good day despite snow almost all over the place. The sun made the Spring come closer. 

Havsörn – White tailed eagle

Today I had the opportunity to see two white tailed eagles pretty close just outside our kitchenwindow. Two other I saw out at sea. So four different eagles at the same time. That´s a good bird watching day 🙂

Idag hade jag förmånen att se fyra olika havsörnar. Alltid lika fascinerande att se dessa mäktiga fåglar. Två av dem kunde vi se utanför köksfönstret och två andra ute till havs.

Two white tailed eagles at sea/Två havsörnar ute till havs går inför landning

At the same time we discovered two other eagles much more near our place

White tailed eagle in top of a tree – Havsörn uppe i en trädtopp

White tailed eagle looking behind – havsörn med ögon i nacken 😉

White tailed eagle with wind in the neck – havsörn med vind i nacken

Then we watched another white tailed eagle flying over the treetop where the other eagle was watching over the area
Sedan såg vi en annan havsörn som flög över trädtoppen som havsörn nr 1 satt i och vakade över området.

When they´re fully white tailed, bright headed and have yellow beak they are adults.

När havsörnen har helt vit stjärt, ljust huvud och helgul näbb är de fullvuxna.

Today it was sort of a Christmas gift to see theese beautiful birds.

Vilken gåva att få möjligheten att se dessa rödlistade fåglar på så nära håll idag.

I´m glad I can show you some pictures from this magical moment.



I wish I knew…

…what the ring on the swan feet says. Where have this bird been? 

Today the swan took a nap and a food searching round in our area. I hope we will see the swan again and try capture closer pics. I wanna know what that ring says.

We have another bird wearing a ring that turn up now and then. I wish the camera had sharper eye. Where does this bird got the ring from? 

I bet both birds has lots to tell about their journeys.


En mesig dag – Tits day

Rubriken kanske lurar er att tro att dagen inte föll ut väl, men när jag skriver en mesig dag menar jag en mesig dag på följande vis

The headline may trick you into believe something else than a day with this in sight

Today we saw three different tit species. Idag såg vi tre olika mesarter.

A tit in the bird sentence is in Swedish mes, which also in Swedish means wimp. So the Swedish headline is in English a whimp day. So the Swedish headline and the English is totally different when it comes to the humor theme.

Det engelska ordet för mes betyder också tutte på engelska, så rubriken på denna post får en helt annan humorisk mening än den svenska. Tänk så olika språk kan fungera trots att många ord betyder samma sak. I detta fall är det helt tvärtom.

I had a very good day today. A taking care day.

Jag hade en jättebra koppla-av-dag idag. Underbart!

Nature is a good soul healer.

Naturen kan det där med att ge själsligt lugn.


Spring dreams

I hope Spring will come soon


More snow again

This morning

Snowy kayaks. You won’t belive it, but one kayak actually got in the water today. Not me, but I saw another person step in a kayak and paddle away. Brrr!

Snowy trees are beautiful 🙂

Five hours of snow shoveling today. My exercise is done for today. Lovely weather with so much fresh air in my lungs now 🙂

I still long for Spring though.




The perfect artist Mother Nature

Just look at this ice formations that the photographer Ingrid Benson found the other day.

Thanks Ingrid for letting us all see Mother nature’s artwork.

Wind and water in perfect match.


Moon over Lagnö – Måne över Lagnö

Just outside Trosa city you still can get out to places where nature still is larger than the people living areas. That means you can watch the sky without disturbing lights and high houses blocking the 360 view or at least about 180 view if you have the forest behind your back. Moon evenings are beautiful out there. Pitch dark around and only the moon lighten up the sky.

Alldeles utanför Trosa tätort går det fortfarande att komma ut till områden där naturen tar större plats än människors bebyggelse. Det innebär att månklara kvällar bjuder på storslagna upplevelser. Alldeles mörkt runt omkring och bara månen som lyser väg. Inga störande stadsljus och inga skymmande höga hus. Du kan forfarande se hela eller möjligen halva himlavalvet. En storslagen upplevelse.

Jag undrar vad gubben i månen tänker om oss människor här nere på jorden.

I wonder what the man in the moon thinks about us humans down here on earth.

What do you think he thinks?

Vad tror du att han tänker?


White dove drama

I’ve been watching a white dove since last year that showed up among the dark doves.

Jag har sedan förra året spanat in en vit duva som dök upp bland de blågrå duvorna.

Well it is almost entirely white. Must be a peace bird 🙂

Den har nästan bara vita fjädrar. Måste väl ändå vara en fredsduva 🙂

This year the dove got company

I år verkar den vita duvan fått sällskap

Black and white seems to get along well.

Svart och vit verkar komma bra överens.

Förra året jagade ett duvpar iväg den vita duvan. Taket tillhörde deras revir.

Last year a dove couple chased away the white dove. It was their roof.

This year seems to be different.

I år verkar den vita duvan få stanna kvar.

Last year this meeting ended up woth the white dove leaving. This year it’s one of the dark doves that loose.

Förra året fick den vita duvan ge sig och flyga iväg. Nu får en av de mörka duvorna ge sig.

I wonder what happened in this changed scene from last year. Why is the whote dove more popular now?

Jag undrar vad som hände när den vita duva plötsligt blev mer populär.


One fine day in my church

Church may be a building for many people, but for me a church place also can be a state of mind. My church is nature where I find peace in my mind and gratefulness in my heart.

This is what my church give me some days.

A morning with visible angel lights through the clouds.

A forest that still gives fall Chantarelles to us even if it is the last days of December. Usually a winter month in Sweden, but not this year.

So if I don’t find time to make another post this year – I wish you all a happy new year!


From me to you

This Christmas I learned new wishing words. “May you be a blessing“. That’s beautiful words I think. But I added two more words. 

I will let these words guide me from now on. If you like them you are welcome to spread this drawing as much as you like.

If we learn to pay better respect to nature then we will be wiser in all our other decisions too I believe.

Merry Christmas to you all! 

And yes I know, everyone of you don’t celebrate Christmas, but in that case I wish you a merry weekend instead 🙂


December 16 2017 nice findings

Global warming isn’t always bad…

I found these in the forest today

I gave them to a friend as an early Christmas present or whatever. You actually can give people little gifts no matter what day it is. Never mind if it’s a gift holiday, a birthday or something else day. Just give the gift when you feel like it 🙂


The weather outside’s delightful :)

…or not depends on how you see it.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas 

That’s nice to see some bright colors that lightening up the ground 

But with nice things there’s always a but.

Someone have to shovel this snow. Well, there’s always an upside to downsides too. Shoveling snow mean exercise in fresh air. What can be bad about that, besides the heavy lifts?

I can’t help it, snow is beautiful around Christmas 🙂

Here’s an old snow painting of mine.
