Trollskogen




When I first moved to Järna, a town just south of Stockholm, I began walking around and getting to know the area. It’s so much fun moving to a new place and going for adventures of discovery! I love finding the nature sanctuaries... 

Already during the first few days here, my feet led me over the bridge, over the frozen creek, and into the woods known here as Trollskogen. The troll woods. I fell in love with the place, and still today, after having lived in Järna for almost one year now, I love walking in trollskogen. It’s close to where I live, so it’s the perfect place to go for a walk and recharge my wild batteries.

These past 10 days I have taken care of my dog friend Mille and she is such a joy to be around. Snow came early here in Sweden and we have been enjoying the first snowfall in the magical troll woods…










Often when walking in the woods I pick up songs and stories along the way, such as this merry little song…






Out the door and down the street and down the hill we go…

Over the bridge and over the brook and into the woods we go…

The troll woods, the troll woods, it’s the place to be!

A mound of moss to sit down on, a tree to lean upon.

The troll woods, the troll woods, it’s the place to be!

Here the snow has fallen white, a blanket soft and warm.

The troll woods, the troll woods, it’s the place to be!

Here the sun is shining gold and streaming through the trees.

The troll woods, the troll woods, it’s the place to be!
