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!


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!


Tree CD

Anna at Intefangördetdet gave me some old CDs and here’s the first painting on one of them.

I’m supposed to paint manhole covers on the CDs, but then Anna made a post with trees, so I just had do do one with trees first.

I started yesterday

And finished this evening 

It felt so good to be back in my drawing/painting corner. I’ve been away too long.

Thanks to Annas CD gift my inspiration got new energy.


Yellow Fall

Maybe this is the last findings of yellow Fall this year.

We will enter a new season soon, but it feels so good to have some Fall signs left.

Have a great Sunday!


Gärdsmyg – Eurasian wren

I saw a cute little bird this weekend.

Tails up is significant for this bird. I’ve only seen pictures of it before, but now it showed up near the house for a short while before it flew away again.


Bläcksvamp – Lawyer’s wig

This is actually the same fungus but at different stages.

They start by looking like the little one in the front of the picture. Then they go like the one behind the little one. A few days later they look like this:

In Swedish we call them ink fungus, but the English name Lawyer’s wig are so much more fun 🙂


Visitor in the sky – besökare i luften

Här om dagen seglade denna fågel ovanför oss. Vad är det för fågel?

The other day this bird was flying over us. Who is it?

I don´t know, so I’m asking if you know and can tell me.

Jag vet inte vad det är för fågel, vet ni, så får ni gärna berätta för mig.

en vråk av något slag?

I went to my church

I’ve said it before and I say it again. Nature is my church. Especially archipelago nature where my home is. Nothing beat this in my book.

Can you believe there are people who wants to destroy this beautiful piece of paradise?

I will fight as long as I can to preserve nature. 

Have a great day you all!


My power bank :)

Morning calmness at the Baltic sea near my home.

Bokö-Askö nature reserve, Baltic sea. Also near my home.

This is an excellent power bank and I hope this wonderful nature will stay here forever.

I saw the white tailed eagle several times over the tree tops. Didn’t catch it on camera though. The eagle was to fast for me.

I always get new energy when I’m in this place 🙂


Thanks Leslie!

The other day Leslie promised to send some rain over here. And she did 🙂

Finally we got rain that was measurable 

Before that we could count the drops that came down this Summer.

This little friend is obviously very happy over the rain. Haven’t seen escargot this summer at all. Nice that they’re back 🙂

And one of my favorite rain paintings. Sold to a lady in Denmark couple of years ago.


Carrot woman

It’s fun to find vegetables in the garden sometimes 😉


Tullgarn Palace – other buildings



Today I’ve been to a beautiful place outside Trosa. One of the Swedish royal palaces, Tullgarn palace.

For me it’s not the buildings that impress me. It’s the surroundings, the park, the trees, the water. The buildings are beautiful and carries lots of history fo course. But I wonder what the garden can tell us about the people that was there before us. We have them to thank for the woods and all other green plants that makes the place so special today.

I have more pics to show you. I hope I can make a post soon. I just have to find the time 🙂

But now you know one of the reasons why I’m not here on wp with you right now that much. Hope to be back soon.

Another away reason is bad connection and that’s irritating because I can’t do anything about it.
