Another beautiful morning here by the Cranelake. Once again the cold weather is on a visit. But already tomorrow warm winds will come to our shores.
I have absolutely nothing to write about today. Haven´t done much to be honest, but i took a walk a little bit thurther out on the fields than usual even though it was both windy and cold. My dogs and I found a new creek there. Creek is perhaps not the right word nowdays, it´s more a very deep ditch to be honest. The area is very weat so if they hadn´t dug it, it would be impossible to go there at all.
The beautiful frost that has covered the trees for a couple of weeks has dissapered after one day of warm weather.
The rest of the day I have spent indoors putting firelogs in my stove and watching the birds by the birdfeeders. I really want to take some pictures of them, so I can show what kind of birds that comes here in the winter. My mobilphone camera isn´t good enough for that, but then I saw a small bird eating clematis seeds outside one of my kitchen windows. I wasn´t fast enough with the camera, but tomorrow I will buy tallow balls and put them there. If I´m fast enough with the camera You might see some bird pictures here tomorrow.
I ordered some seeds yesterday. A couple of Delphiniums and a Romneya (Romneya coulteri)from northern america. We call the Romneya "Bush poppy" and it´s not really hardy here, but it´s so beautiful that I have to try it. The seeds are really difficult to germinate and usually they recommend putting fire on the soil it´s sown in. I´ve done that and my neighbours thougt I was crazy :-) Nowdays they are used to that I do things like that :-) But now someone found out that one only have to put a lot of ashes on the pot and then water the pot thoroughly. Place it cold and the seeds germinate when the spring is comming. So much easier :-)
