Ugly Pig

More from Nöbbelövs Mosse yesterday. The next few will be from there as well.

I think these kind of pigs are some kind of old breed that is close to wild boars, I don´t know for sure, but I do know that they aren´t pretty. At least I don´t think so.

Nöbbelövs Mosse

Went to another part of town today, Nöbbelövs Mosse, near Gunnesbo. Took quite a few pictures, but I´m too tired to post more than one now.

Some cows. I took a lot of cow pics, because in this part of town there are no cows, just sheep and goats, and chickens  and.. well, no cows. I like cows.

This is in a pond by the monument.

I´m usually pretty good at understanding symbolism and things like that, but this is beyond me.

I mean seriously, what the?

A baby screaming it´s head off because it´s sitting in the middle of a pond, on the back of a vomiting turtle?

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY???????

The Battle of Lund

I was here yesterday as well. This is the site of one of the bloodiest battles ever, not only in Sweden, but in Europe. Thousands and thousands of Danes and Swedes completely slaughtered each other here.

War sucks, but if anyone is interested I found a thing about it in English on Wikipedia.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Lund

This monument was raised 200 years later, and the inscriptions on the sides are in some kind of weird olden Danish, but I can still understand it enough to translate it I think.

The first one says:

1676

The 4th of December

Here fought and bled

People of the same tribe

Reconciled descendants

Raised the memorial

 

The second one says, in some attempt at rhyme:

 

Here lie brave men

Whose bones and blood are blended

Blended together

So that no one can say other

Than that they are of one family

They were of one faith

Still, with peace

They could not together live

 

Or something. This editor thing double spaces things when they aren´t supposed to be double spaced, but whatever.

Lost in the blinding green

I got lost today. Here are 5 pics of confusing greeness.

I just started walking and ended up on some path, then the path split, so I chose one, then it split again, and again, and so on, until I had no idea where I was. Everything was just green all over the place and looked kind of the same. I even ended up on top of a hill somehow and I don´t know how I got there.

I wandered around for over 3 hours until I finally found some place I recognized enough to find my way home.

I´m kind of broken now. Took pictures of other things not so green on the way, and will post them later, but this was pretty much what everything looked like today.

Yellow Fields

Took a walk close to home today. This is what it looks like in the fields all over Skåne (Scania) right now.

I took a lot of pictures, here are 5 of them. It was really windy so I was having a lot of problems getting anything Sharp.
I know what these plants are called in English, but I´m not going to write it. They are used to make Canola Oil (I think it´s called in English).
