Foggy autumn days.

Foggy autumn days.
Written by Annika Olsson / October 28, 2019


There is something restful about these gray foggy days in October.

2017 11 04 nr2 011 ö

Days that never really seem to be able to brighten completely.

I like this with fog ... yes if I should not drive a car I want to say ... But when it gets so thick and foggy it feels like everyone else also get as bad eyesight as I have myself. Everything becomes equal. Equally and fairly.

2019 10 16 4 österlen.se2019 10 16 6 ö

Of course, if fog is so good for the eyes, I do not know, but it is obvious that the skin gets a lot of moisture anyway. The hair curls in a burr and along the neck runs a small drop of water that tickles. Everyone knows that moisture is good, both internally and externally.

2019 10 16 7 österlen.se2019 10 16 12 ö

There is indeed something certain with foggy, dark autumn days. Because it's not the same feeling at all to come home from a walk on a hot summer morning. I notice the difference and enjoy the time that is right now.

Hi. Welcome to my blog.
My name is Annika Olsson. I love animals and nature. I live with my husband, our dogs and cats in a wonderful place - Gyllebo in Österlen. I try to enjoy life in all places and gather at those little moments. I love to photograph and tell about big and small in my life, my thoughts from day to day. A lot of nature pictures and photos from my everyday life. One and another wise quotation is often included in my posts. Welcome to me!

you have no more fun than you do ö


I love that expression, because I think it fits so well. In fact, you have your own responsibility to make your days as good as possible.

2018 10 26 026 ö

It is far from all days that are sunny from morning to evening. That sunny you have to try to pick up every now and then. But if you just dress for the weather and leave, you have come a long way. Concerns, troubles and bad thoughts become so much easier when you get out into the forest. Think demons simply do not like fresh air.

I have invested in such a fitness watch that keeps track of every step I take, every minute I sleep and every little run I run. My dear Stefan has now also started counting his steps over the phone. You could say that it has become like a little exciting competition between us.

2019 10 05 nr1 039 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 045 ö

Several times he has massaged himself out of the TV couch since the step count competition started…

-you can ass fill me ...

And of course it is so much more fun when you are two.

2019 10 05 nr1 042 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 044 ö

Especially when you are with Stefan…

2019 10 05 nr1 033 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 034 ö

Although this ladder competition, I can already figure out which of us will win….

Quote of the day:

Love is not always about keeping each other's hands in agreement. Love is about the fact that despite many conflicts and misunderstandings, they still hold each other's hands.

So it's all about being able to laugh together.

Have a good time and hug from me.

Do you also have places in your home area that you have never really explored. Places you have passed thousands of millions of times, but never ever stopped and and visited. So visited like that for real?

2019 10 08 13 ö

I have such places anyway. One of the places has been the cholera cemetery in Baskemölla.

2019 10 08 1 österlen.se2019 10 08 3 ö

It was that day when the rain was like rods on the hill for a whole day. As the sun peeked out in the evening, both Johnny and I had a lot of splashes in my legs. It had to be a round to "Baske" and to the sea.

2019 10 08 4 österlen.se2019 10 08 5 ö

That night I took the opportunity to visit this cemetery that I have only run past so many times, but in fact never really explored. Stefan took Johnny down with him to the sea, while I looked for myself in the small forest grove.

2019 10 08 7 österlen.se2019 10 08 8 österlen.se2019 10 08 9 ö

The cemetery is from 1857, when Baskemölla was affected by a cholera epidemic. Nine people rest at this location.

2019 10 08 11 österlen.se2019 10 08 15 ö

The little cemetery is extremely beautiful. It is surrounded by a simple stone wall and in the middle stands a large, sleek granite cross with a text engraved. It is a simple text with all the names of those who rest here.

2019 10 08 16 österlen.se2019 10 08 18 ö

After quietly wandering here for a while in deep thought, it was time for me to find Stiffe and Johnny the dog again. Down the sandy hill it was easy to get around and soon I was down by the little path that goes along the sea.

2019 10 08 19 österlen.se2019 10 08 20 ö

Pretty soon I got to see my happy dog ​​again, who, to his great delight, had a salt bath in the blue wave. Then came Stefan smiling with a half smile in his mouths. Yes it was almost so I thought he also took a bath.

with feet and rats in an apple kingdom ö

… Or as my Stefan would surely have expressed:

... scavenger to scavenger ...

2019 10 05 54 ö

Good morning.

Yes, this Scanian dialect may not be the most beautiful in everyone's ears, but I just love all the old common words that to me feel so "heaven" and sound so familiar.

2019 10 05 49 ö

As so often, we had a case for Kivik. We made our way across Svinaberga. Up there from Bergdala you have a wonderful view. You can look far over Ravlunda shooting range.

2019 10 05 21 ö

On the other side you can see the farms in the small village of Mellby. The place where the little fantastic bakery is located. Where the world's best corn is produced. A yummy coarse bread that may be sponsored by the Dental Association ... It is thus quite hard, but the best in the whole world.

2019 10 05 25 ö

If you were born and raised in an apple kingdom, then of course you enjoy it here. And are you like my Stefan, born in Kivik's harbor, well then something with the sea pulling ...

2019 10 05 24 österlen.se2019 10 05 51 ö

The apple board had assumed a darker and deeper color. You know that, like us, women are the most beautiful when the apples are fully ripe.

2019 10 05 53 ö

But even though you were born and raised among "apple crab ridge" and "apple tree", it seems that the taste buds have not really caught on. No, a sour apple you never see my dear husband put his teeth in. For him, it is the pear that applies. Clara Frijs should be, so be it! So sweet and juicy ripe so it runs down the chin ...

2019 10 05 55 ö

Quote of the day:

Think about and be thoughtful or think about and be caring.

Well thought must be to make a lot of apple cakes for the family lasting autumn ...

The sound of all the wild geese.

14 October 2019
the sound of all wild gas ö

Good morning.

Living on a lake is so wonderful. It's just as amazing at just about all seasons. It's just a little different.

2019 10 07 28 österlen.se2019 10 05 20 ö

Now in the autumn, there is a lot of life in Lake Gyllebos. There are all wild geese that gather there in large flocks. Most Canadian geese, but also some gray geese.

2019 10 07 5 österlen.se2019 10 05 14 österlen.se2019 10 07 6 ö

Every morning when I walk here on my usual morning round, there is a heavenly "cockroach" on the birds.

2019 10 05 13 österlen.se2019 10 07 3 österlen.se2019 10 07 ö

I just love that lovely sound that I associate so strongly with this fall and this place.

2019 10 07 17 österlen.se2019 10 07 19 ö

One frozen morning it was extra beautiful down by the bathing place. I stayed for a long time to enjoy a little extra of the nice morning. When a flock of Canada geese came in for landing, another group of birds lifted up to the sky in a horrible sloping sound. Yes, it was kind of like a big loud runway meant for live birds.

2019 10 07 14 österlen.se2019 10 07 23 österlen.se2019 10 07 15 ö

When a brave bather later came to get his morning dip, it was completely empty of birds. The only thing that testified they were there was the white down which floated around on the water.

2019 10 07 20 österlen.se2019 10 07 18 ö

I wandered discreetly on with my camera… nude bathers to show respect.

In search of a little king.

13 October 2019
in search of a little king ö


That there lives a little king down by my brother-in-law's eel fishing in Hällevik, yes I know that for a long time ...

2019 10 05 nr1 009 ö

Now, not every simple little king I mean. No, it is one of our, by far the most beautiful little birds, namely the colorful kingfisher.

2019 10 05 nr1 013 österlen.se2019 10 05 30 ö

You can often see small kingfishers right here, and from a reliable source he would have been extra special lately. In the early morning he had been sitting on the red buoy out in the sea, quietly surfing a little on the waves.

2019 10 05 nr1 004 ö

On a cold windy Saturday morning, Stefan and I drove down to the hut in Hällevik to see if we could see the colorful little kingfisher.

2019 10 05 nr1 003 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 005 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 006 ö

The morning was really cold and windy. On the sea went high waves so the foam became hot. I had forgotten about the cap at home, so I got really cold about the ears. My blonde ruffs were completely haunted by the sea breezes.

2019 10 05 32 österlen.se2019 10 05 33 ö

Out in the pit, Matt's eel sump snapped in a fierce wild eel dance. The fish that lay in it must probably be completely angular and sea sick, I thought to myself, as I simultaneously peeked in the strings for my little bird.

2019 10 05 26 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 007 österlen.se2019 10 05 48 ö

The only bird I could see was a frozen, windblown screech that was broad-legged standing on a rocky breeze and giddily looking out over the bushy sea.

2019 10 05 40 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 010 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 011 ö

From Hällevik we went north to the little sweet bay which Stefan firmly states is called "Hagen". There we continued to scout and glow for our kingfisher.

2019 10 05 nr1 022 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 023 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 024 ö

Well, there are such names in places that soon fall into oblivion. Like a cute little bay outside Kivik called Hagen. These are names of places that you definitely can't find in Google Maps anyway.

2019 10 05 nr1 015 österlen.se2019 10 05 nr1 025 ö

No, we did not get to see this little kingfisher on this Saturday morning anyway. But it was a wonderful morning walk in the best nature. And that's really all it takes to feel good. Don't you know what the little kingfisher looks like, I advise you to look at Google ... it's so incredibly beautiful, right ?!

Best time in the garden.

best time in the garden ö


I love it here with autumn gardens. To ceaselessly deal with things that fall into my mind. Fix and donate in the garden. Then to go in and warm myself by the stove, cook a good soup and just feel that it is good enough. My garden is for my own well-being and not at all to impress or please anyone.

2017 10 22 nr3 010 ö

It is the time now, when the leaves are falling and the wild nature offers a colorful autumn party.

Down here with us we have had the first little frostbutton already. Not many minuses, no more than that the mercury has been down and nosed just below zero. Still, it blooms so beautifully still in my garden.

2019 10 05 1 österlen.se2019 10 05 3 ö

Of course, it appears that it is on the final lamp for some varieties. The very last little lavender flower stood so defiantly among all the withered friends. A beautiful rose still had lots of buds, and the delicate sunflowers provide good, greasy seeds for the little birds.

2019 10 05 4 österlen.se2019 10 05 5 österlen.se2019 10 05 6 ö

Of course, the autumn parade varieties bloom so beautifully yet. The various anemones, rudbecki and silver ax.

Above my head, the wild geese fly back and forth from the lake. Day in and day out, there is a dangerous flapping on them over our little garden. Though I love that sound of flying geese. It's almost like it's watering a little in my mouth pores when I think of good goose dinners which is usual at this time.

The cranes have also passed here over our roof. It's a little sadder feeling. But time goes by and suddenly they come again when it is spring.

Quote of the day:

People should focus more on keeping their own grass alive, and not take much interest in if someone else seems greener.

A good thing about autumn is that when the cold sneaks on you can set the lawnmower and instead settle down with a good book in front of the fire. Every time has its charm.

From the club to the dog bath.

from the club to hundbadet ö


Just outside Simrishamn there is a fantastic fine dog bath. Almost like a small dog paradise on Österlen.

2019 10 03 49 ö

When on all other beaches in Österlen there is strict dog ban all summer, it is free for dog owners to bring their fur blades here.

2019 10 03 51 ö

The morning when my dog ​​Johnny and I were at the working dog club, we took the opportunity to hike the short distance down to Vårhallen.

2019 10 03 37 österlen.se2019 10 03 43 ö

2019 10 03 46 ö

At Vårhallen there are almost always plenty of dogs and dog people. Just this morning, something had taken care of a little black and white runaway that was later reunited with its owner.

2019 10 03 48 österlen.se2019 10 03 58 österlen.se2019 10 03 63 ö

The scenery here is so beautiful and also a bit dramatic. Johnny and I walked up past the little charming house of the pearl fisherman.

2019 10 03 52 österlen.se2019 10 03 53 österlen.se2019 10 03 61 ö

In the air, the tar smell was heavy. It was the oak lying there, recently tarred by Thor's friends. As a love sign more beautiful than the finest memorial bouquet.

2019 10 03 54 österlen.se2019 10 03 56 österlen.se2019 10 03 65 ö

Given Johnny's bad hind legs, I decided to return again.

2019 10 03 62 österlen.se2019 10 03 67 österlen.se2019 10 03 68 ö

Back at Hallagården, Johnny seemed quite happy for the day. For a brief moment he glared at the sheepskins, who stupidly just stared back at us. Then he took a clumsy leap into the car and immediately lay down to rest.

working dog club at osterlen ö

Hello Hello

The farm where Simrishamn's working dog club has its seat is just amazingly beautiful.

2019 10 03 36 ö

A little stone's throw north of Tobisvik you will find the wonderful Hallagården.

2019 10 03 15 ö

It was an early morning when Johnny and I went to the dog. Dark clouds hung threateningly across the Austrian plain as we approached "Sillastan".

2019 10 03 2 österlen.se2019 10 03 3 ö

Here we went to a lot of courses, Johnny and I. Bravely, I have tried to get some fun on my happy dog, especially when he was young.

- "yet you have gone on so many courses", my parents sighed, when Johnny happily jumped up against them to say hello ...

As a certified watchdog, we managed pretty well anyway, Johnny and I together. With the facts in hand, we have had as much fun in the home defense as dog hunting. In Johnny's defense, there are probably not many who can beat his results on the track work during the patrol dog test. I remember how I could just hang on like a mitten when he rushed forward into the forest with his nose pressed against the ground. With more than an hour's time, he had tracked down all the entries on the 1,5 kilometer long stretch. When we arrived at the final report, Johnny glanced at me with his tongue like a tie. He probably wondered just when we would go on. I remember my judge's when she frightened came running across the Björkafältet and wondered what went wrong, if we were lost… we were not waiting for long there at the finish line where our time would be stopped. I showed the final bag with all the small items in and said, nothing, we are ready !!! Yes he can when it really matters, my Johnny dog.

This morning we practiced a little half heartedly for some obedience and then he got to run around most and enjoy life in his own way.

Simrishamn's working dog club is so beautiful so only the surroundings make you feel good here.

2019 10 03 20 österlen.se2019 10 03 21 ö

Here at Hallagården many Österlen dogs have gone into training. Here they have learned how to behave in a fine dog breed and get used to meeting other four-legged relatives without wanting to eat each other ... or rather, many dog ​​owners have learned how to act as a dog owner, because it is in fact, what dog training is about.

2019 10 03 24 ö

When Johnny had finished just about everywhere, a bunch of cows came roaring. In the long run we could hear their complaining.

2019 10 03 25 österlen.se2019 10 03 26 ö

Johnny glared at them for a moment. I thought to myself that if you live in a pasture next to Hallagården, then you must still be quite used to dogs, and not look so "spoiled".

2019 10 03 27 österlen.se2019 10 03 28 ö

I felt a little tingle in my heart when I thought back on the wonderful time with my fine Johnny dog. For more than ten years I have had him by my side, almost every day. A wonderful time and a wonderful dog! Now I give him a little moment every single day - a moment that is a little more his. A moment when I am always completely happy and proud of him and no longer think about achievements.

There have been wonderful harvest days in Mandelmann's fantastic garden a week ago.

2019 09 28 20 österlen.se2019 09 28 22 österlen.se2019 09 28 21 ö

That last weekend in the summer that you can visit Djupadal and Mandelmann's farm, it is always a little extra festive there. Much like a cracking final spurt.

2019 09 28 23 österlen.se2019 09 28 25 österlen.se2019 09 28 26 ö

As a small traffic policeman, Gustav himself stood in the muddy hillside up to the parking lot, directing both slipping cars and small horny young children with a friendly happy smile. With open arms he caught little three-year-olds who were about to run out of traffic, and in his friendly way, he patted them on the head a bit and mumbled to himself "Yes you little parvel".

2019 09 28 51 österlen.se2019 09 28 50 ö

Adjacent to the parking lot, the rolling hen house had now been moved, and the hens seemed to enjoy themselves up there in the sunny hillside.

2019 09 28 49 ö

The fact that it was a harvest party and a little extra party atmosphere was clearly noticed on the colorful decoration everywhere. The whole garden was pimped with beautiful pumpkins. Even at the small docket, it was seen that there was a party going on.

2019 09 28 43 österlen.se2019 09 28 44 österlen.se2019 09 28 46 ö
