Moving South


When you start to hear the special Fall sound in the air and then look up in the sky where the sound come from you will see a bunch of grey geese moving south this time of year in Sweden.

Så här års kommer du att höra tydliga ljud ifrån skyn. Tittar du upp kommer du troligtvis skåda källan till ljudet. Grågäss som flyttar söderut.

Can you see the formation the geese makes in this drawing? If you see the drawing from long distance the formation should appear 🙂

Lingonberry – Lingon


This year seems to be a good lingonberry year. There’s lots of blooms in the woods.

In the Fall we will see if the blooms has turned in to berries.

Transformation tree

Apple trees are great transformers!

They are so beautiful all year around, but each season has different beauty.

Stats not the only thing that falls

Shoveling snow this evening. Sorry for not being here with you instead.

I wasn’t around much here yesterday either.

The stats clearly show what you think of my absence 😉


I’m not a stats addict, but I miss you all when I don’t have time to be here.

I hope you all are okay.

If you want to tell me and the others what you’re up to on your blog, please tell us in the comments and leave a link if you want.

Between Fall and Winter


We’re not the only ones being surprised by the winter. At least we can stay indoors and stay warm. That’s not the case for marigolds.

The double meaning of pumpkin is fun don’t you think?

Pumpkin

Found a pastel painting from last pumpkin season.


What is pumpkin to you?

For me it’s Fall time, beautiful colors and amazing that nature can create pumpkins.

They’re here


Bohemian waxwing.
This means cold weather soon when this little creature with many friends lands in our area. I saw them first time today. Brrrrrrr!

I’m not ready for cold weather yet. I want warm Fall to last longer. But our days gets shorter and temp is now under 10 C plus, so I guess warm Fall days are over for this time.

Birds are fun to draw but I am not very good at it. I have to practice a lot more.

Do you have birds coming to your place and tells about cold weather coming in?

Morning sky

Nature beauty capture with an old but full working phone camera.




I like quiet mornings 🙂

Naked lady Tidlösa


Autumn in Trosa. Then the naked lady or autumn crocus appears in the garden.

It’s a beautiful little flower I think.

In Swedish we call it Timeless. I don’t know why, but it’s a lovely name. But naked lady is maybe a more exciting name? We have that name for the flower in Swedish too, naked virgin to be exact translated.

Swedish Fall nature


Swedish Fall nature is a colorful show. Just look at this.

Calluna, Scots pine, Quercus robor (oak), Sorbus aucuparia (Rowan), Juniperus communis

I like Fall, but I don’t like that Summer is almost over. It’s getting darker in the mornings and evenings here again. I like sunny mornings and evenings better that dark ones 🙂

Not all of you have this kind of light/dark changes or season changes. I like all our seasons in different ways, but I always think summer and fall goes to fast.

Dragon fly Trollslända

Look what my camera captured the other day 🙂

I think it looks like a fairy tale animal.

Sailboat and shark

  

Autumn is sometimes about boat hauling . Slightly melancholic but when autumn storms come it’s nice to have the boats on land. Sailboats sometimes miss their mast. Then, they look like this. Beside a swimming shark having keel in reverse 🙂
