A single cloud on the sky, painted pink by the sinking sun last evening.




The raods are shining with ice today, so we haven´t taken any longer walks today. The old lady has problems with her back and I with my joints so I didn´t think it would be a good idea to walk to much on the roads :-)


This day one could say that there was only a single cloud on the sky too, so much bigger though :-)



Even though it´s cloudy today, I still have the feeling of spring in the air and so does the birds. I sat and watched slalom on TV when I thought that I hears water flow somewhere. I turned the sound of and realised that it was the birds outside singing :-)

I think I could have used skates outside today. Here at least there were some grass to walk on.



Doesn´t the moss have a wonderful green colour?


Tomorrow it will rain they say. That will at least get the ice from the roads so we can take our longer walks again. Now I´m going to pop some popcorn and watch “Harry Potter and the filosofers (sorceres) stone on TV and yes my dogs are going to get some popcorn too :-)
Be good!
I can´t find the english name for this, but in swedish it´s called "lav". The moore you find these on trees and other places, the better the air is. They can´t stand pollution.

Love your blog Christer! I had no idea you used to have a garden center. Your photos are wonderful and your writing just draws the viewer in. My husband and I have popcorn every night! It is less fattening than ice cream and cake...which we ate a long about a year ago! So glad you and Woody and Alice have become friends. What a fantastic life we all have...the fact that we can communicate from so far away! Thanks for you comments too on my new blueberry plains....Debbie

Hi Debbie!

Yes I had a small gardencenter for a while and it was the best job I have ever had, every day was fun. But financial it wasn´t fun at all :-) Almost went bankrupt. But with help from family,close friends and those I owed money I got through it really good :-)

The internet is really fantastic in that way that one can become friend with someone on the other side of the world!Your blog is really good, so I´ll continue to read and comment it!
Have a nice day!
Christer.
