I feel like Ronja Rövardotter

I feel like I want to scream like Ronja Rövardotter does every spring! 
On english it's Ronia the robber's daughter. It's one of my favorite children books by Astrid Lindgren's after Allrakäraste syster. Ronja is also a most beloved tv series. I love when she runs around and welcoming the spring screaming in the deep and wild green forest with all the little wood anemones on the ground around her. 

I noticed this little hillside the other day on one of our walks to our favorite cafe´.
I couldn't believe my eyes at first, is this real? looks like something out of a story!
The grass looked so green and the blue anemones was it's carpet. The weird or sad thing was...As I was standing there rubbing my eyes and with mouth open I'd noticed that the people who were passing by this place just walked right on! No one stopped and looked at this amazement, no one even turned their heads to take a peek! 
What is this world turning in to? when people don't even stop and breathe and look at what mother nature serves us in wonders. Haha you know what? I just remembered that we are having a BIG mother nature issue right now with the volcano ashes spreading all over the northern regions of Europe. But that's another story! and it sure is a reminder that we can't control our world, there are things that are greater than us. 

    

And this beautiful white horse who after taking this pic rolled around on the ground in joy.

My ranuculus has bloomed!
