Every season here has it’s own unique appeal and activities to enjoy. Starting with spring, a season where all living creatures wake up. A time which seems dedicated to multiplying for most species. Highlight, black grouse mating dance.
Summer is splendid, that is, bright, fun with all kinds of stuff to do but it’s short-lived. We literally don’t sleep with the sun up all the time and almost the whole country is on holiday. It’s like there is an urgent need to catch up and do everything before nature forces us to slow down again.
Autumn comes in with it’s beautiful display of colours. Something to marvel at, whilst picking berries from the forest or canoeing down the river, amongst other things. It’s always a nice welcome with it’s slow pace after summer, until the days start getting dark and gloomy with no sun in sight.
Voilà! winter, my absolute best and favourite season. When the snow announces it’s presence, covering and turning everything white, bright and crisp. The variety of winter sports, e.g. skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, etc., makes spending time outdoors a real adventure. It’s feels like snow is whispering, “come out and play”
Then there is that magical feel the snow brings, which creates a mood for winter romance. Looking through the window at the snowflakes falling outside, cozying inside next to the fire, cuddling up with my DDH, sipping a glass of warm glöggi, listening to Chris Botti featuring Rene Olstead’s Pennies from heaven (those pennies being snowflakes instead of rain at the moment) and just enjoying the moment, are some of the things I love about winter.
