It’s been a great day so far. Then this came down from sky. That icky bad white stuff as Jim call it.
Idag har jag haft en underbar dag. Sen kom detta ner från skyn.
It is wet snow, so tomorrow I know what to do. Snow shoveling. Good exercise but I reqlly want Spring now.
Blöt snö som enligt väderprognoserna ska fortsätta i natt och imorgon. Ingen ode att planera in så mycket annat än träningsformen snöskottning. Jag längtar efter våren!
Yes we have the Christmas lights up still. I think the town forgot about it. It was the first year they decorated the tree with lightballs this Christmas. The usual stuff around the center of town is gone. But not this decoration.
Jepp, vi har julbelysning kvar ännu. Tror att kommunen glömt att plocka ner just denna belysning. På torget har de tagit bort julbelysningen. De har inte haft belysning i detta träd tidigare, så förmodligen har de glömt den kvar.
Have a great Friday. Today I learned there’s still some good in the world.
Ha en underbar fredag. Idag kunde jag genom små händelser återfå hoppet om att en god värld kan vinna över dess motsats.
Today I saw a red sailboat with white sails in the afternoon sun. So beautiful and the longing for a warmer and brighter season grew stronger. The Spring sun is warm but the winds are still cold. Not warm spring or summer yet.
My interpretation of the boat. I paint on rock with chalk crayons.
An old tradition in my town Trosa was to burn the last boat on land by putting it on top of the walpurgis fire. Trosa is an old fishermens place and the boats should be in sea before Walpurgis night. Otherwise they risked to be burned. The tradition probably came from the fact that boats still on land after Walpurgis didn’t get to sea at all because such boats didn’t work as boats anymore, is my guess. Old boats or broken boats maybe.
Here’s a drawing I did last year about Walpurgis night.
Today I found two anemone nemorosa, in Swedish Vitsippa. This flower can bloom in millions in the forrest. Like in the movie Ronja Rövardotter – Ronia the robbers daughter. The story is written by Astrid Lindgren. She also wrote Pippi Longstocking and other great stories.
The composer Björn Isfält did the music to the film and here you can listen to a piece, in Swedish Rid över skog, thats horseride in forest in Englih.
If you want to have a quick look at the film story you can check this:
After a while you will see this picture
A forest full of anemone nemorosa. It’s one of Swedish most beautiful Spring scenes. I think so anyway. Anemone nemorosa are so Springish when they come in millions.
But I like when they come one by one too.
If you haven’t read the book about Ronia the robbers daughter by Astrid Lindgren, go ahead and do it. A brave girl with a big heart. We need more Ronias in the world today 🙂
