I really can’t complain, can I?
Weather-wise this has been a dreadful day, pouring rain and som strong gusts didn’t make a good walk after work. But it did look as if it should stop just as we were getting out, the clouds were much more light grey than the ones that just had left us. So off we went to the forest because I really wanted to see how much they had cut down. We hadn’t come far when a big SUV passed us and stopped, it was hunters looking for a dog that according to the gps should be just nearby.
I don’t know if they found it though but I do hope they did because the weather had just become worse again. It didn’t look that bad when I looked into the forest, they had just been thinning close to our cottages but then we came closer to the bog, where the creek is that Sune loves to take a bath in, it looked a bit too bright. The forest is thick there and it is always dark even on sunny days.
The raining was so bad when we came out there that I couldn’t see anything through my glasses and I don’t see much further away than 15cm (6 inches) without them 🙂 but this I couldn’t miss. There’s not a single tree left in my favorite places to walk. I would have liked to go down to the little creek but the raining just got worse so we turned back home again.
I don’t like when they cut down the forest but I really can’t complain about it can I? I have a cottage made from trees, I have furnitures made from trees and I have a fire heated stove that needs tree to work., It is just as much my fault they chop down trees as the forest owners and to be honest, they own forest just because they can make money from it.
The odd thing is that the three tree stumps, that I call the three Bog Ladies still stands! They have managed to stay even when they have been removing all other tree stumps. Our folklore says that a forest nymph (and the Bog Ladies are forest nymphs) can look like a rotten old tree stump when they want to but can quickly change to something else like a woman or a deer if they need to go away. So perhaps I haven’t been wrong about them being Bog Ladies 🙂
Have a great day!
