Eat the breakfast buffet at Vismarlövs cafe. Outside are beautiful hens
pecking. Two roosters strutting around and're proud of their joint harem. Drive
to Veberöds heather east of Veberöd. Turn off route 11 where it is signposted
Kulturens Östarp. After a kilometer is a larger parking lot on the east side of
the road. Still lingers spring, but a sign of spring maybe there even though
the fog is this early March day.
The heather has recently become a nature reserve for its flora and oak groves
of old pasture land. A stile is leading into the reserve. Following the former
railway line, the rails remains, until it is stopped. A fence
barriers. Follow the fence north to the river Klingavälsån which meanders quietly. The
river is lined with alder. Out on the pasture are some oaks on a line, one has
fallen and become home to all sorts of bugs. Following the river to the main
road that crosses the river on a stone arch bridge from 1887. Going over a
stile and take the road to the parking lot where a stile leads to the pasture west
of the road.
Coming in at pasture land with beautiful groves of oak and juniper. Cattle
tracks runs over the pasture. On a surface stand stumps. Walks towards road 11
that runs adjacent to the pasture in the north. A stream meanders. Then walk
along an oak grove until Klingavälsån. By the river is a large
population with Yellow Star-of-Bethlehem. It is already on the way to flower. Sitting
down for a coffee break at a small rapid. The water sings soothing. Ending the
tour at the arch bridge and go back to the car.
