There are lots of things that, when I see them, makes me think of Sweden. A summer meadow, bursting with the life of bees and butterflies as they visit all the flowers is definitely one of those.
I usually post U2 and their fantastic song New Year’s Day today but instead of doing that I thought a picture would fit better. Break traditions and so on… Buut, since I’m actually a sucker for traditions (and U2) I’ll give you the link to the song so you don’t have to search for it yourself:)
This summer we spent a couple of days on the Swedish east coast. On one of our walks to the village Kivik I saw a lonely tree with a great view over the Hanö Bay. In the lower right corner is the remains of what I presume is an old shelter from the days when Sweden still felt the need to protect its coast line. Perhaps it’s time to dust off the cob webs with the lunatic Putin not so far away..
