A wonderful place in the forest, where the beautiful hawthorn is blooming at this very moment.
Great Variety in a Small Area
We often find exciting snakes, birds and plants here in the bog.
The wind direction must be right and we must not make too much noise 😊
‘The Way through the Woods’ by Rudyard Kipling:
“They shut the road through the woods
Seventy years ago.
Weather and rain have undone it again,
And now you would never know
There was once a road through the woods
Before they planted the trees.
It is underneath the coppice and heath,
And the thin anemones …”
The forests are the most used leisure facilities in Denmark. 90 percent of all adult Danes go for a walk in the forest at least once a year * ❤️

Wrong place, at the wrong time?
Something must have frightened the deer. Suddenly they came running straight towards me. It was really scary for a brief second until they turned away from me and calmed down. Whew!
The Light in April
I love the April light. This image is from a wonderful walk in ‘my’ bog.
Happy Walk ❤️
The Ambassadors of Nature – Reposting
We were walking in the wild part of a forest when we met a woman at a crossroad. She asked for directions and soon we fell into conversation about walks, nature and places.
She’d just finished an outstanding week’s holiday in England. An English friend had introduced her to The Lake District. Let me put it this way: The Lake District had got one more ambassador.
London is the only place I have visited in England. But one of my favorite books as a child was The Swallows and the Amazons by Arthur Ransome.
A few years ago I learned by chance that the stories weren’t only fiction, but some part had their origins in reality. Windermere and Coniston Water in Lake District were the focal point.
George Kitching owns Lakeland Walking Tales. If you miss inspiration for an exciting hike in The Lake District, then you will not go in vain on Lakeland Walking Tales
Mei shows her love for photography, travel, and hiking through her blog: Mei Photo Images. Jewels Of The English Lake District is a wonderful tribute to The Lake District.
Mike never miss a chance to go for a walk including glacier walking depending on what country he is in. Luckily, I can show you excellent pictures of Lake Windermere because Mike’s wife, Jude, loves sailing. Mike calls his blog: A Little Bit Out of Focus.
Steve Foster takes us around Buttermere Lake. Another wonderful place in Lake District. Steve calls his blog: Treks and Tors.
Take pleasure in finding your own paths and leave only your footprints behind.
Happy walks 😍
Nature has many dramatic expressions from wonderfully mild summer weather to storm and thunder that roars between the mountain walls. I chose these lovely paintings on Wikimedia. Details coming up soon!
“Swallows and Amazons is a series of children’s books by the English writer Arthur Ransome. The series is named after the title of the first book in the series. The 12 books are about the adventures by groups of children during school holidays. Events mostly take place in England and Scotland between the World War I and World War II. The stories usually are about outdoor activities, especially camping, fishing and sailing.” * Wikipedia
Whoa! It’s beautiful out there ❤️
“The first blooms of spring always make my heart sing.”

We call it the anemone forest, the Trørød forest, which lies close to the sea.
Here we find tightly packed white anemones.
They nod in the wind as we pass.
As if they are greeting us on our walk.
I greet again, and it takes some time before I have passed them all 😊😊
Happy Walk Everyone❤️
In the spring, I have counted 136 different kinds of weather inside of 24 hours.

The sun is shining and everything is good.
Till you step into the shadows, gasp! 😊
Where to eat a Packed Lunch
We had a great walk in the river valley, Klevad Mose.
The bog always offers a wonderful natural experience.
There is a nice rest house at Klevad Enge. Here we ate our packed lunch and enjoyed the view across the meadows to blossoming bird cherry trees.
It’s a lovely experience ❤️
Happy walk and remember your packed lunch ❤️
