It has been a rainy week but is has been quite warm, often around 10 degrees Celsius. But it is dark when I go to work in the morning and it is getting dark when I go home in the afternoon.

This weekend I stayed in Borås and went exploring a little. I went to have a look at murals south of the city center and also saw colourful statues along Åhaga, amongst them a big rabbit. As I love rabbit I share this animal statue here. Saturday was quite wet and I was happy to get home again.

On sunday it was a little sunny in the morning and no rain, but the rest of the day was bright but overcast. I took the opportunity to finally climb Tokarpsberg, the hill I see every day from my kitchen window. It turned out to be only one rather steep path up to the hill and it wasn´t much walked. And there wasn´t any litter except one cigarette butt so not many people go up on the hill. Well I managed to climb the steep part and get back down again with the help of some trees. I put my cameras in my backpack on my way down for fear I would fall on them and ruin the lenses. Sadly there wasn´t any place to see the view up there but I saw some beautiful fungus, and cones that someone had eaten on so I think it is a good spot to live for small animals. And I saw a cat when I was down on the road again. And the wood was beautiful with big trees and big stones covered with moss.

The pictures are from Borås in western Sweden.

More pictures on Our World Tuesday and on Skywatch.

I climbed up on Tokarpsberg and managed to come down again without slipping on the leaves with the help of the trees and the fir boughs.
