There is something so magical about Swedish forests, especially at this time of year when the sun is shining through the trees, casting beautiful shadows on the lush moss-covered ground. Since I was little growing up here, I have always loved being in the forest and I have such wonderful memories from my childhood, just running around in them, exploring, having adventures, climbing on rocks, looking for sticks, building dens and foraging for wild berries.
That precious sense of freedom that one gets when playing and exploring in nature, is a feeling that I really treasure and wish that I can pass on and share with my children.
I try to “recreate” that feeling in England where we live as much as I can but it just isn’t the same. The Swedish forests hold a very special place in my heart.
We joyously picked about 5 kg of blueberries today ! That doesn’t include the ones we gulped down while picking.
