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?

No winter this year…


No snow and no ice this winter, but a lot of rain.
Though in between also lovely days with  beautiful weather and warming sunshine.
Lots of spring flowers are already here… just like the deers.
They always try to get into our garden and eat all flowers… and very often they succeed.
It dosn´t matter how many and how high fences we put up…
Nothing stops us either from our daily walk down to the beach.
It´s wonderfull to have the ocean so close…

Every time of the year is amazing

 

Surely that´s true… every time of the year is the best time and we all have our favourites.
Lots of people like autumn, when the air is crispy and easy to breathe
when the nature puts on the most beautiful coloured chlothes and life calms down a little bit.
