20 May 2020:
During the visit earlier this year, Globeflower did not bloom.
We make another attempt today.
Cows graze in the northern part,
and also in the eastern part south of the cycle path.
From the bike path, something yellow and purple can be seen
by the marsh on the south side, where no cows walk yet.
Promising. Wonderfully. Large stocks with Globeflower and Bird's-eye Primrose.
It's the most magnificent now. The cuckoo is heard.
Nightingale sounds. Just to walk around and enjoy the splendor.
You have to be careful and not step on anything.
The marsh is wetter this time, avoid it.
Many who pass on the bike path, some stop to read on the information sign.
But no one visits the nature reserve.
Maybe good it, can easily be trampled.
We spread a blanket in a dry place without any visible flowers.
Coffee and cake, sunshine, Bird's-eye Primrose, globeflower.
Cows graze on the other side of the fence.
Can it get better. Yes, looking in on the north side.
At the edge, cowslip and Meadow Saxifrage bloom.
Goes back to the car we parked in the parking lot to Fågelsångsdalen.
Keeps the corona distance to other people on the bike path.
April 28, 2020:
Puts the car in the parking lot to Fågelsångsdalen.
Then walk towards Lund on the bike path between Lund and Södra Sandby.
The cherry trees are in bloom.
After a kilometer we arrive at Sularpskärret.
A small nature reserve with a small marsh with Bird's-eye Primrose and
Globeflower. Hope to see something.
Walks across the marsh to the marsh south of the bike path.
Pretty dry, not much in bloom. But find some Bird's-eye Primrose.
Some Water Avens. Globeflower has leaves so far. A stand with Cuckooflower.
Sloe flowers. Goes over to the northern part of the reserve.
Some Meadow Saxifrage blossoms and Marsh-marigold.
In the middle is a shrubbery on a small hill. A few Cowslip.
Meadow Saxifrage blossoms bloom in the meadow. A beautiful grass.
Sitting for a while on a hill framed by flowering sloe.
There are small Spring Cinquefoil.
Looking up at the hill with the bush in the central part.
Hm, something yellow. What is it? A carpet of cowslip.
Fantastic, in this place? We go back satisfied.
May 7, 2011:
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
flora. On the edge grows yellow flowers that I forgot what it is. The
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
nature reserve, this side is managed by haymaking by the Nature
Turning to the north, in there one get by climbing over a stile. Here
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
and Water Avens. Meadow Saxifrage stretches. Spring Cinquefoil
creeps shyly on the
ground. A nice moment. Through the reserve flows Sularpsbäcken.
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.
