More signs of spring

A sign of Spring? Vitsippa
I decided to take the steel horse through the nature reserve Gullringskärret yesterday. The reason for that this time was that every Spring millions of wood anemones turns the green fields and pine forest white here. It's always a spectacle to see and there's even an organized tour for people who wants to do just that. But I was a few days early and although I did find a few flowers, this was the scene that awaited me. A stolen, dumped and burned car. I reported it to the municipality and have already got two answers so I'm guessing the wreck will be gone later today.

Some one had their VW van stolen, see you have the same problem as we do.

That's not a very good spring sign.

Hope that car gets moved soon. Flowers are much prettier.

I guess every country has its share of mindless idiots that think nothing of spoiling a pretty place, not to mention ruining other people's property. I was in a local park the other day that has swathes of pretty daffodils and there was a family of five picking huge bunches!

I prefer the flower too!

Hmm, if this were a nature trail there would be a sign saying the vehicle was returning to the soil.

I too like the flower more. I hope the car is gone soon, replaced by many more flowers.

A burned out car is certainly not what I expected as a sign of spring! The flower is very pretty though. :)

Men vs. nature... Quite a contrast!

I do like the white flower, but the burned out van is pretty sad.

The burned van would be perfect here... Love the flower!
