Tanning Time

Tanning Time
It was a little too hot yesterday. Even for me. No energy to go out and take photos when it is 32C, at least not Swedish 32C. Stopped by the lakes at Rudan in the afternoon. There were a few sunbathers working on their tans, but not as many as you would think considering the weather.

Blimey, it's a Blimo X-Moto

Blimey, it's a Blimo X-Moto
Electric scooter for the elderly. Nice way to get around when you can no longer walk. Yours for around 20.000SEK. If you are lucky you can get 25 percent of that money back via the "Elfordonspremien". You can drive this thing indoors as well as outdoors. And it is legal do drive it on the sidewalks. Top speed around 18km/h.

Surrounded By Flowers

Surrounded By Flowers
Out on a walk near the old tree a couple of warm days ago I noticed a Roe Deer munching away at a field filled with ox-eye daisies.

Sporty Girl

Sporty Girl
Sporty girl walks by the cafe every now and then, I tried snapping a few shots of her last week but the focus was off on those photos. This time around I saw her coming so I was camera ready. But she fooled me by crossing the road so when I was ready to shoot she was a bit closer than I had anticipated. Next time I see her I will ask her if I can take a few posed portraits. It is another hot day here, I'm off to try a new bike path for the first time with a friend. Feels like it could be a tough ride.

Vimmel och Pannkaka

Vimmel och Pannkaka Do you want pancakes with that?
New cafe, (fik in Swedish), along Mulstavägen at Välsta in Tungelsta. Vimmel och Pannkaka. Opened by Veronika Nordh whom you can see in the second photo. It's a food truck in the garden at the horse farm near the old tree. Opened for business over the weekend. I was there yesterday. The coffee was just fine according to these two guys that accompanied me here. And very inexpensive at 10 SEK with included påtår! Will try the pancakes next time.

Wildflower meadow

Wildflower meadow Ängsblomster
Poetic Swedish word of the day. Ängsblomster. In the early Summer a few thousand bloomed on this lawn in front of Poseidons gränd in Handen. That was just in time for the tulip festival. Today it looks like this. It is the third year in a row that the municipality have planted wild flowers here and there. Last years Traffic Island Flower Bed was a big hit with the locals.

Which Way?

Which Way?
Roe deer running back and forth on a wheat field at Tjursta in rural Österhaninge. There's an ever busy shooting range a few hundred meters from where they were.

Dry Hill

Dry Hill
Not much rain in Haninge this year. But a lot of very warm weather and sunshine, nice for people like me, but not for the local farmers. The hay harvest came early this year and it will not be enough. This hill at Snurrom is normally very green and during the Summer months there's usually a lot of horses up there, not so this Summer.
