I told You yesterday that we now have a government that that doesn´t have a majority of its own in our parliament, but that is perhaps not entirely true yet. I´m not sure how elections works in other countries, but here we can pre vote. We can vote a couple of weeks before the election day in special places. All swedish citizens are allowed to vote so some weeks before the election we all get our registration card in the mail. If we pre vote they´ll put that registration card and puts it together with our different votes (that are placed in envelopes so no one can see how we voted). By doing like this we then actually can change our minds and then go to the same place again, tell them that we have changed our mind and wants to vote again.
There are several islands out in the bog. This was once a big lake and even if most of the water is gone the islands still stands there above the rest of the surroundings. If one doesn´t know the way out to these islands one can fall down in to deep holes filled with water. But forest machines can build their own ways and easily reach them if they are close to the "shore". Here You can see the timber on one of these islands. Not a single tree stands there now.
I´ve never seen this kind of mushroom before in my life! It´s dark green! It will most likely disappear when they cut down the trees on my favorite part of the forest where it now lives. I think that it is quite beautiful!
This will all be replaced by grass and raspberry bushes in the beginning. The moss will most likely die in the sun.
The envelopes will then be destroyed without anyone being able to see how we voted and new votes can be done instead. Did that make any senesce at all :-) :-) But when we vote on the election day we´ll get that registration card back again directly. These pre votes isn´t counted until yesterday, so the result can still be a bit different. Since 2,2 million people has pre voted (out of 7 million, I think) things still can change. Even if it isn´t my side that will be able to win this it would be better with a stabile parliament and that the racist party then would have no influence at all :-)
Most of the bog is nature reserve and this is close to the border of that area. These trees are probably over 70 years old.
They will pull up all roots too after cutting down the trees, so this will be a rare sight on this place in the future.
What is even worse now is that Nazis has got one place in the County council in a nearby county!!!! Have people learned nothing??? Did the world fight these pigs for nothing? This is something that really scares me. Compared to this our racists in the parliament are nice and cuddly people. The whole county is still in chock after that result.
I heard the forest machines work when I drove away this morning. It´s always sad to know that most of the trees I like out there will be gone when I come home. Sometimes it feels like I really know them :-) But who am I to complain! I have a cottage made from wood, I love wood furniture and I keep my home warm in winter by having fires in my stove. Fires that needs wood to burn. I really can´t complain about the owner cutting down his trees then, can I? It isn´t better if they cut down trees where I can´t see them to be honest. I also know that new trees will be planted there, but it will take around 70 years until they are as big as those they cut down now. I´ll never see that again in those places because I really hope that I don´t become 136 years old :-) :-) :-)
Hector have found an old stick stuck in the ground.
He realised that he wouldn´t get it out from the ground, so he just laid down and chewed on it at the place.
Some cranes passed over us on their way south. One of them had a high pitched sound and it sounded so fun when it shouted like the others that have low voices :-) :-)
He hasn´t reached my favorite place in the forest yet, so I walked there and took the last photos of how it looks now. The trees might be gone already tomorrow. So now I´ll make a toast in tea to all trees that I love and put some more logs in my stove.
Have a great day now!
