Autumn I think…

Summer is over… sad in a way, but also liberating.
Who can say no to cosy evenings at home or wonderful autumn walks?
Here are three nice things about autumn:

1. New efforts
The summer’s experiences and holidays give us a whole new energy to deal with autumn.
Now when summer’s temptations do not attract, it feels right to set new goals.

2.  The crispy air
The air never feels as clean as it does in the fall. Walking along the sea or in the forest is not only cozy but also good for your well-being and your health.

3. Autumn colors
Yellow, orange and red leaves fall from the trees. How beautiful is not it?

Summer, summer, summer…

It is still summertime and we enjoy every moment of it!
June an August has been the most beautiful months this year and have given us a lot of sunshine.
We hope summer will last at least till end of October! The water in the sea is still very warm.
“Njut av varje minut” (=Enjoy every moment)!

Swedish summer nights…

I don´t think there is anything like the nordic summernights
the light, the smell of summer, the chirping from all the birds…
Here at our place we also can enjoy the noice of the Sea, the splashing sound from the small waterfall, the rush in the trees and the rattle from the bamboo. The flowering this year is just amazing. It´s like if the nature wants to compensate us for everything else, that can be hard and heavy in these times.  We are so very grateful to be able to live in a paradise like this one!

The most beautiful time…

Now it is the time……the time between the hagberry blossoms and the lilac blossoms, the most beautiful time of the year.
And it goes away very fast, often it is over before you even notice that it has started.

It starts in Sweden sometime in May or June, depending on the weather and of course where in the country you live.
The phrase “between the hagberry and the lilac” is usually combined with a story of a shoemaker who put up a sign on the door, which said “closed between the hagberry and lilac.”

And who hasn´t dreamed of having a job that allows you to hang a sign on the door saying “Gone fishing” or “Closed by sunshine”, when the world is at its most beautiful and the adventure attracts?
