We walk a few kilometers along winding residential roads with flowering shrubs, trees and cozy houses, and soon we are down by the lake. This is years and a few lock downs since I last was here, and I’m completely overwhelmed by the thoughts of all the fun and strenuous experiences that have piled up over the years. It is cold and windy. The weather is very changeable and the rain showers violent. Still, we meet people who are out and about. Soon it is pouring down with hail and heavy rain, and we hurry to shelter under some large oak trees. Another awesome moment where nature sets the agenda ⛈️😊
It would not surprise me to see hobbits in this landscape. It appears lush, between hills and streams. The landscape has my undivided love and I am happy for every single moment I have wandered here. If I hear firecrackers I expect to see a pointy hat 😊
Solbjerg Engsø! I have a fond memory of a summer day with differently coloured flowers along the northern part of the lake. The lake is known as a foraging site for resident- and migratory birds. I’m well aware that it’s too early for summer flowers, but maybe there were migratory birds. A man came walking towards the parking lot with a bird binoculars around his neck.
Have you seen any rare birds today, I asked.
No not at all, he replied. Some geese on the lake, that’s all. I was hoping for some migratory birds, but it’s probably too cold for them. We talked a bit about how cold it was. And about the relatively few shrubs and trees with sprouted flowers compared to the season. As we stood on the path, the sun disappeared and the wind picked up. If you go down to the lake there is a bench but it’s not much worth. Why not, I asked. It’s way too cold, too, he said laughing.
We wished each other a wonderful spring despite: ‘You – Know – What’☃️❄️😊
An Irish Blessing:
May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow. May the soft winds freshen your spirit. May the sunshine brighten your heart May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you. And may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.
