SLEEP DUST OF THE FOREST

There is something about the forest and its many sounds that work like magic for the baby. She falls asleep the moment I step outside, and it just seems like the gentle whisper as the wind rushes through the trees and the distant songs from the birds work as lullabies for her. The sling works…

BABY WEARING

On the go, when doing practical stuff at home or just whenever the little one needs her mum and body contact. My little girl is not too fond of strollers, because she likes to be close to us. She wants to be able to see, feel and hear us all the time, which the stroller…

WINTER GUESTS

Each winter our lake at work gets visited by greylag geese. They flock around on the fields that lead down to the lake and walk about on their orange legs that are so characteristic for the birds. I always show the flock to the kids, because they often get amazed by how big these geese…

SUNRISE

I have had two Mondays in a row, where I should drive around the border of the city to look at the equipment different closed nature bases have. The best part about this was that these bases are placed in a beautiful area that is filled with nature and calmness far away from the busy…

FOR THE LOVE OF CORVUS

I absolutely love making kids fall in love with regular birds they see every day, but never consider being interesting. When they come on a bird walk with me, they will get funny stories about the known birds, and they get to know them far better – and maybe even on a more personal level….

HAPPY SAMHAIN

Oh, I love bicycling home from work and pass by several witches, bloody doctors and trolls on their routes to visit different decorated houses. Traditionally, we do not celebrate Halloween in Denmark, but as we get more and more international, the festivities are inspired from other countries. Last night, we set our clock one hour…

WHERE DID THE BIRDS GO?

And thus the forests have silenced. The chippering, singing, tweeting… Everything has faded now that autumn has arrived. Some of our birds have already left for the south, while others have simply silenced because they have no longer anything to sing about. They have mated for the season, so there is no need for them…

LOVE THE PROCESS

Why do we always need to get measured? It is as if the world is focused on reaching point B from A rather than exploring the process. Children today are taking tests in a very early age to see how much they know. We are always making milestones in our work to make sure to…

CLAVICEPS PURPUREA

I had never seen it before, and there it was, standing right in front of me, looking like a curse from hell as the rye proudly rose from the ground. Even a few students stopped doing their garden work, as they noticed the dark fungi, asking me what it was. It was a perfect moment…

WONDROUS LARVAE

I can’t stop giggling at the title, but I let it be, because it is actually a quote from a 12 year old kid who was so fascinated by the larvae she found in her garden today. It was wonderful to see how she was being completely excited about these animals while as garden work…

ONION HARVEST

After days with rain and generally humid weather, it is truly about time to harvest onions. If they stay for a longer time in the ground, they would begin to turn bad. After the harvest, the onions will of course have to dry at a dark and airy place. They will therefore be able to…

WHEN KIDS COOK

We live in a very busy world today. Whatever happened to wellness, letting yourself just be you and enjoy your surroundings? Everything has to go in rapid pace, and none of us can follow it. Everyone I know has suffered from stress – some even got sick from work because of it. And now, we…
