Om bloggen/About the Blog

I aim to use this blog to keep up my English and maybe give others some insights in Swedish language. It's not a diary - well not quite...

Dagsmeja

NaturföreteelserPosted by Gunvor 2011-03-08 13:40:59

Dagsmeja is thaw in the beginning of Spring when the sun shines and temperature lies above zero in daytime, and falls below on clear nights - translated as 'midday thaw' in my dictionary. It means "power of the day".

Sometimes dagsmeja has been ranked as the most beautiful word in the Swedish language (I think I prefer solkatt).

This is the day before yesterday. It has been dagsmeja. The sun is sinking and it's already below zero. The snow is glazed with ice - skare: http://svenska.iedior.se/#post52.
