Sometimes we take things around us just for granted. In Sweden we have something that is unique and for us so obvious that we forget how wonderful it is. We can go out in the forest picking berries or mushrooms. We can also lit up a fire and put up a tent for one night without asking the owner. It doesn't matter if it's a private person or the crown. But all these rights give of course a lot of obligations to behave in a way that doesn't give damages to the ground.
It's called "Allemansrätten" (all men right) and is something that we talk about in school so that the children will know how it works. When I was out on Wednesday evening I stopped by this Juniper to see if it got any berries ready to pick. I dry them and use them as flavour with moose meat.
But I only saw this little bleu one so I 'll have to wait and pick them another time. These bushes are quite low here in the north part of Sweden. They are much higher in the south.
