Wetland green

Wetland green

View through the stalks of grass and succulent reeds growing in the waterlogged ground of a sunken spot among the chalk-rich soil of the Sillvik Nature Reserve. The chalk soil (unusual for this part of the country) gives brilliance to the colours of the plants and the underlying granite below the shallow chalk holds water creating this miniature wetland.

This green swing for a very small child hangs in a playground on a little hill near Kronhjortsvägen overlooking the E6 motorway and Örgryte’s old church (Örgryte gamla kyrkan).

An angel in the bushes

This angel stands among evergreen bushes in the churchyard of Örgryte Old Church. Örgryte is an interesting churchyard to visit. Lots of famous locals are buried here (including, for the Anglo-spotters, a small tribe of Dixons, a few Keillers and a clutch of Halls). And just over the old boundary wall, a man-made cliff plunges down to a multi-lane motorway. (Check out the map below in satellite or hybrid mode.)

A another lost glove in what seems to be green towling material on the crown of a post on a stairwell in the carpark of the Nordstan shopping mall.

Sacrifice tree

Tree decorated with children's dummies

The old Norse used to sacrifice to their gods by hanging offerings in a tree. The tradition seems to live on, though dummies (pacifiers) hang here rather than horses or men.

For a little video I filmed at this tree three years ago when it had yet to collect quite so many offerings, go to YouTube here.
