Sularpskärret
nature reserve along the bike path between Lund and Södra Sandby, with a rich flora. In the spring bloom Bird's-eye Primrose and Globeflower. Managed by grazing and haymaking.

May 7, 2011: A beautiful spring day, a day for a bike ride. The tour goes to Sularpskärret Nature Reserve, which is split in two halves by the cycle track between Lund and Södra Sandby. Sets the cycle at the bridge over the brook Sularpsbäcken. A stile leads into the southern part, which contains a rich marsh with a beautiful flora. On the edge grows yellow flowers that I forgot what it is. The marsh is sensitive to trampling, but it's rather dry right now, so I walk carefully around. A family comes and sits down in the grass for a picnic. Marsh-marigold is in bloom, and Water Avens. One for me unknown beautiful grass tussocks. Bird's-eye Primrose bloom. Oh! My favorite flower Globeflower is yellow and proud. It is a small but nice nature reserve, this side is managed by haymaking by the Nature Conservation.

Turning to the north, in there one get by climbing over a stile. Here it is drier. A meadow with Meadow buttercup bloom. Blackthorn is in full bloom. Sit down on a low hill and have coffee. Looking out over a meadow. Around flowers a few Cowslips and Water Avens. Meadow Saxifrage stretches.  Spring Cinquefoil creeps shyly on the ground. A nice moment. Through the reserve flows Sularpsbäcken. Under the bridge has somebody put plastic bags. Bicycles happy with the trip back home. From the highway, I look down towards the reserve, with a grove of trees behind. It does not look so exotic. But nice it is.
