Still Autumn – fortfarande höst


As long as I find these in the forest it’s Fall and not winter 🙂

Så länge jag hittar dessa i skogen tolkar jag det som att hösten stannat kvar ännu en stund före vinterns intåg 🙂

Have a lovely Saturday – ha en härlig lördag!

#inktober 27-31 2017

Inktober has come to an end. It is always fun to do drawings to that challenge. My time for the challenge was limited so I didn’t manage to create many great drawings, but I will try better next year. 

Today’s prompt MASK means mask in Swedish too. But mask in Swedish can also mean caterpillar. So now you know another Swedish word 🙂

End of October in Trosa

This is Trosa Sweden around 16:00 a Sunday in October.


Street lights already on.


Almost no boats left in the little river. Only two kayaks. It’s still kayak weather if you have the right safety clothes on.

Today it’s very windy and cold. We’re heading to the w season I think.

But still nothing of that white stuff coming down. It can wait til December around x mas.

Have a great Sunday you all!

Oh no, the Waxwings arrives 


They are beautiful birds with lovely sounds, but when they arrive the cold season also soon arrives here in my parts of Sweden. We still have fairly warm weather for the month of October, but now I fear we are getting colder weather soon. Brrrr!

The upside of that is that more winter birds arrives in our area and that means more photo opportunities 🙂

Every season has charm. The fall is the tree season I think. They are so colorful before they drop their leaves. We still have some of that color explosion left. But now when the waxwings coming, the leaves will fall of the trees soon.

Fall in Trosa river

In the evening at Trosa river in the town Trosa it looks like this 


The leave’s falling and the lonely boat waiting for the last tour on sea or to be taken out of the water for winter maybe. 

Soon it’s Spring again, don’t you think?

Something dark about the Fall

Fall in Sweden means dark mornings


It’s difficult to believe it’s time to get up when it looks like night outside.

In Summer the light is almost there all the time. Then you don’t know when to go to sleep. Now you don’t know when to wake up.

I like the season changes, but the light gone so many hours a day in Fall and winter, well that’s take time to adjust to.

Have a great day!

Something good about Fall

A walk in the woods. Fresh air, nature miracles and some nice findings 😉



I hope you all have the weekend you want. Mine is good so far 🙂

Tidlösa – Naked lady

One more beautiful thing about Fall.


Tidlösan dyker upp ur jorden. The Naked lady shows up in the garden.

In Swedish we call the flower without leaves Timeless, but I think the english name Naked lady says more about the flower without leaves. The leaves on the pictures don’t belong to the naked lady. The flower also goes by the name autumn crocus I think.

It is Fall when this beauty shows up. But I want some more summer before the real autumn enters. I will live in denial a little bit longer. How about you? What season do you have right now?

One good thing with Fall. Apples 🙂

Hey, I have a question for you. What’s the difference between Fall and Autumn? Sometimes I write Fall and sometimes Autumn. In Swedish we only have one word for the season. We call it höst.

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?
