Osynliga länkar – invisible links Selma Lagerlöf

Jag fick av en bekant en radda böcker av Selma Lagerlöf. Jag har kommit till nummer två i samlingen. Osynliga länkar. Den kom ut 1894, men historierna i den skulle lika gärna kunna utspela sig i nutid. Hon gör intressanta betraktelser av oss människor. Roande läsning. I got some books from a friend a while… Continue reading Osynliga länkar – invisible links Selma Lagerlöf

Kayak evening – kajaker i skymning

When I was thinking it's time to sleep I saw these two kayakers out at sea the other night. När jag började tänka  på läggdagstid härom kvällen fick jag syn på dessa paddlare.  A perfect kayak evening. No big waves and nature silence. Peaceful. En perfekt kajakkväll. Spegelblankt vatten och naturens underbara tystnad. Fridfullt. Anna

Long time no seing 

I morse fick jag syn på denna vinbärssnäcka. Det var länge sedan vi såg sniglar och snäckor här. Kanske har den mer fuktiga luften givit dem en mer gynnsam tillvaro igen. This morning I saw this little friend for the first time after long dry and hot weeks. Now it's still hot but more humid.… Continue reading Long time no seing

Resan till Thule – The Trip To thule

Kjell Espmark har skrivit om ett intressant besök i landet Thule, detta märkliga fiktiva land i norr, som har slående likheter med ett Sverige i nutid. Satirformen gör sig mycket bra för att berätta om det vetenskapliga besök historiens huvudperson gör i landet. Nyttig läsning om vi vill få perspektiv på vår egen tillvaro och… Continue reading Resan till Thule – The Trip To thule

Svingelgräsfjäril – Lasiommata Megera

Over at Ankis blog we talk about butterflies. They aren't so many in the heat and dryness we have in Sweden right  now. But I saw two of these today, but only one got stuck on picture. Anna

Here in Sweden we wining when temps are 30 C, we're use to ten C less on the scale normal… Continue reading Is it too much? Tar jag i för mycket?

Still early morning light in Sweden 4:25

Best thing about summer. Early sunrises. Can you tell the difference between the picture above taken at 4:25 in the morning and  the picture taken 21:00 in the evening? It is almost the same, isn't it? This time of year I like very much 🙂 Anna

Still bright evenings in Sweden at 21:00

This time is the best of the year. No dark evenings, no cold weather and the s word is far away. But when Fall comes I like that season too even if it means dark evenings. What's your favorite season? Anna
