Summer Birds, Shaky Legs and Flowers

A fairy tale was waiting for me outside the Fairy Tale Woods. A suitable name for these woods!
The first thing I saw were cows grazing. But between them on the ground lay a small bundle.
A cow had calved a moment ago. The umbilical cord hung between the legs.
Both animals were looking a bit exhausted but after a while the calve made attempts to stand despite its shaky legs. That was a lovely sight!!
While I was watching, butterflies were gathering around flowers and the fragrances of summer was wonderful
Keep your eyes open for fairy tales ❤

The Danish name for butterfly is sommer-fugl. Consisting of two words: Summer and bird


A place where children (and some adults) can play.

  1. That’s a wonderful thing to witness, Hanna. And I would say the type of cattle pictured are Belted Galloways. or the Danish equivalent. Not that I’m an expert of cattle.

    • But you are completely right, Alen. I’ve been with cow-savvy people this weekend and it’s the same name that’s used in Denmark. It was a magnificent experience.

  2. What a lovely name for a butterfly, Hanna! 🙂 🙂 And what a moment to arrive! Mum is looking at you as if to say ‘don’t just stand there- do something!’

    • Thanks Jo!!
      I got it all wrong I know that now 🙂
      It really was an exciting moment. I’m not used to that kind of incidents so I am quite humble 🙂

  3. How lucky you are to have seen that newborn calf, Hanna! No matter how many times I see the process of birth, it still seems like a miracle. I’m glad to hear the little one managed to stand up and join its mother (which also seems like a miracle to me — can you imagine how stiff your legs would be after a 280-day nap? :).

    • It IS a miracle, Heide. It may well be the calf had stiff legs, but it made me weak in the knees 🙂
      Wish you a happy weekend ❤

      • “It may well be the calf had stiff legs, but it made me weak in the knees.” ❤️ What a beautiful sentiment, Hanna.
