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.


Storspigg och tångsnälla

Storspigg och tångsnälla

Nu går det att se färggranna spigghanar i vattnet. De liksom klär upp sig för spigghonorna för att imponera. Har du tur och skarpa ögon kan du även få syn på tångsnällan som görna gömmer sig bland vattenväxterna.

Now it’s time for the male three-spined stickleback to impress the females by turning blue and red in their skin. If you have sharp eyes you can be lucky to see a broadnosed pipefish too in the sea.

I did a drawing last year of what I saw in the water this time of year.


Yellow hearts flower

I found this little beauty in the grass. I have no idea what the name of the flower is, so I call it yellow hearts flowers. I think the flower looks like five yellow hearts. 

I think this is the same but with one heart missing.

Do we really need to know the name of every flower to think it’s beautiful?

Or can we just say oh what a little beauty there in the green grass?


Sorry for not being here with you

I’m working on an Save Trosa nature assignment right now.

I will be back soon I hope. I miss you all 🙂



Beautiful but kind of stupid flower.

The bloom grows so big that it break down and…

fall to the ground. But maybe that’s the whole idea. Maybe it is that way it plans for future generations?


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.


Kayak water

Soon I hope I get time for some kayaking. 

This is also why I’m fighting for nature. Can you imagine that some people wants to destroy archipelago life? 

It’s heaven on earth, still some think they can improve it by exploitation.

I like the archipelago just the way it is. Everyday we can watch many wild animals. That’s a gift from nature. We can learn a lot from them. They just are the way they are. They don’t “improve” nature by inventing grandiose projects that effects nature negative.

Have a great day!
