Vi fick besök i trädgården.

Hejsan alla!

Idag har vi haft besök i vår trädgård under nästan hela dagen. Det började på morgonen när sambon kommer på vår ena hund som står och vrål-skäller ut mot baksidan för han ser dem. Vi kikar genom ett av fönstren och ser dem, rådjuren. Två rådjur ligger lugnt och stilla i ena hörnan i grannens trädgård där de har hittat lite lä för vinden och lapar vintersol. Jag tar chansen och smyger mig försiktigt ut för att ta ett kort av dem. Jag vågar mig så långt fram som till staketet där jag lyckas att knäppa de här bilderna.

Jag vill inte skrämma iväg dem när de ser ut att ha det så skönt så jag tackar dem och backar sakta tillbaka. Ett par timmar senare kommer de in i trädbården och går och mumsar i sig lite grönt som de hittar uppe på backen.

Jag sätter mig vid mitt skrivbord varifrån jag kan se dem tydligt och njuter av deras närvaro.

Efter ett tag rör de på sig och mamman vågar sig försiktigt ned till gräsmattan och vandrar sedan i riktning mot köksträdgården, efter följer kidet och både mor och barn låter sig väl smakas av både örter och annat som fortfarande växer i grönsakslandet.

Mätta och belåtna hoppar de sedan iväg och lägger sig att vila. Nu i skymningen beger de sig iväg troligtvis hem för att vila tryggt under natten.

Känner mig hedrad av att fått spenderat en dag med dem, om än att det var på avstånd. <3

Ha det så bra!

Visitors in the garden

Hi everybody!

Today we had some visitors in the garden. They came this morning and as our dog was barking we noticed them through the backside window. When we look through the window we see them, the deers. Two deers are lying comfortably in the neighbours garden where they have found a sheltered spot were the winter sun sends it’s rays. I took a chance and very carefully I sneak outside to take some pictures of them.

I didn’t want to scare them off cause they look like they are loving it there. I thank them and as quiet as I possibly can I back away and leave them be. A couple of hours later they come into my garden to help themselves to some greens up on the hill.

I sit myself down at my desk to observe and enjoy their presence.

After a while they start moving and the mother dare to go down to the lawn and walks right to the kitchen garden tightly followed by her baby.

They eat both herbs and other greens that are still available in the kitchen garden. After they are content they jump over the lawn and find a spot to rest. Now when the sun is setting they make their way home so they’ll be safe during the night.

I feel honoured to have been able to spend a day with them even though it has been at distance. <3

Take care!

A taste of Christmas - Swedish Christmas recipes

  • In this book I've gathered many of the Christmas recipes used at the Swedish Christmas table. Not all of the classics are included and many of the recipes are ones that my family uses and may not be the same as other Swedish families use. Over all I do hope you'll find some fun recipes to try and maybe even some that can become your favourites. You will find many of the classic recipes that you do not want to be without, at the Christmas table such asJanson's temptation and meatballs, but also the sweet that comes with Christmas porridge, saffron buns at Lucia and of course gingerbread cookies. You'll also find a lot of homemade candy many in a healthy, sugar free version but nevertheless sweet and tasty. We should not forget about the beverages we drink during Christmas and in this book some are included such as glowing and te . Wishing you a merry Christmas!
