Drive south on the road from Häckeberga Castle. There Skåneleden is crossing
the road is a parking. Sets the car and follow the forest road and Skåneleden
west. Along the way lies lumber yards. "Hello" cyclists pedaling past. Beside
the road is a beautiful pond. Coming to a multi-way intersection, take the
south on the far west. Several trees have fallen. Passing through a deciduous
tree grove. Going up the hill with young deciduous forest. Wood anemone is on
the way out, looking for hepatica but no found. Returning to the road.
Young trees standing close together. Horse with rider pass. The spring sun
make the branches glow. To the south, behind the old trees, glimpse
fields. Leaving the road to have lunch among the old. Then continues in the
woods. A fallen mossy branch resembles a prehistoric lizard. Trudging up the
slope to the road. A dead tree trunk is full of holes, a home for many
insects. Moving on the slightly muddy road in beech wood. In the south
glimpse arable land. At a brook bloom golden saxifrage.
The road passes through a larch grove. What is it red? It is larch
blooming. Beautiful red cone-like small flowers. I have not noticed it
before. Turn right at an intersection, through the forest to a dirt road, turn
left. Chickens, sheep, peacocks intermingled. The road ends at the highway.
Turn left and then left again on a forest road. Have coffee in a clearing
sitting on a stump. A handsome spruce stands alone in the forest. Is soon back
where roads meet. Now investigating the first road to the left. It leads to
the larch grove. Here are there many trees that bloom. Strange that I have not
noticed the flowers before. Coming down to the road walked before. Turns and
walks back over a hill west of the road. Then the road back to the parking lot.
