This morning someone in the "hiking group"had proposed a goal for todays walk. The original plan was to follow a walking trail on the mainland but, as so often, it was raining heavily on the mainland while the sun was shining, in between clouds, on my island, Öland. A quick change of plans made the eight of us do a walking trail on the mighty plain Alvaret in stead.
A mere seven kilometres in mild weather with a little wind but oh, so many flowers. This time of year, Alvaret is a very green, and in places quite wet place but in a month most of it is very dry. To cope with drought, and often persistent winds, the plants has stayed rather small and close to the ground but with strong colors to attract insects.
A very well spent morning with the friends in the group.
