    Nu är det väldigt länge sedan jag var med och skyltade tillsammans med Beate så här kommer några skyltar från Malta, trots att söndagen passerat.

  • January Wildflowers

    Ja, alla dessa vilda blommor växer och frodas här på ön just nu. Som vanligt lägger jag upp lite för många bilder men det är så svårt att välja. Dessutom är det av olika skäl lite långt mellan inläggen just nu, tid har jag men känner ofta att jag inte vet vad jag vill med […]

    That was yesterday, when we celebrated Christmas Eve at home. Today, we went to Ta Qali Nature Park. A blue sky with few clouds, green grass and plenty of wildflowers. It felt like spring in the air. While Fanny could run without a leash as usual, little Felicia jumped happily and curiously around in the […]

    Here are some images from Ħal Far Raceway which is the one and only place to watch the fastest cars around Malta. I’ve been there once, only once ever during my twenty years here on the island. I found these images in my archive, never edited and never used. This was about five years ago, […]

    That was then, last summer, when the bumblebees were playing hide and seek.“Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin”― Mother Theresa” This spring I saw lots of these, as well as during the summer and fall. Now that winter is here, they are still there. Unaware of […]

  • Pembroke Heritage Trail

    Mom often takes me to Pembroke, which is closer to where we live than Ta’ Qali Park. It’s a large barren natural area along the Mediterranean Sea.

    Tänkte att jag skulle visa några bilder från området där jag bor, där jag ofta går mina promenader utmed havet tillsammans med Fanny. Här har vi gått otaliga gånger och det är inte alltid som vädret är så här fint. Man kan gå hela sträckan på cirka tre km utmed havet från Tigne i Sliema […]

  • Macro – Happiness in Empty Shells

    During my walks in Ta Qali now in September I rarely see any butterflies while the shimmering dragonflies choose to fly high above my head. So I search for other creatures in nature, some barely visible to the eye. And I found these empty shells.When I first saw them, my camera was at home, but […]

  • Ta’ Qali, Trees, A Lizard, Resin & Fanny

    Some images from yesterday’s visit to Ta Qali. Many of the trees have recently been pruned. I was fooled by the orange spot that from a distance looked like a flower and I even saw some faces. In this fenced area I’ve been walking with Fanny since she was a puppy. Among Olive trees, Mediterranean […]

  • Today’s Memorable Moment

    This amazing animal knows nothing about zoos or fencing. Orangutans are found only in Borneo and Sumatra, and Sarawak has the wild population of these intelligent ginger apes. I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet these wild animals in real life. And I believe the quote below by Jane Goodall includes true […]

    Looks like an exciting place, let’s go down and take a look.Like a moonscape in the middle of nowhere. Where am I?I really enjoy to run freely along the cliffs, although it looks more like I jump on soft dunes. It may not be easy to see me at first glance but look closely and […]
