This is what we call a garden runner, a plant we have in our gardens but then has spread via seeds out in the enviroment. So here it´s not unusual to find gooseberries bushes like this is or
Yesterday it was the annual road association meeting. That means that we who live in the village meets and talks about how the road should be kept. In many villages this is a battle between wills and usually makes neighbours enemies for life. Such a meeting kan take hours and even days to get through. In my village we don´t have that problem any more. The battle is over and those who hates the most don´t show up on the meeting (or perhaps lost the most in this battle of wills is a better description). Our road is very well kept, it´s actylly one of the best kept roads in the area and the economy is good, so there isn´t anything to argue about. So our meeting took fifteen minutes :-) After that we chatted for twenty minutes drinking coffee and eating cookies :-) In one of my brothers village it´s a war going on when they have their meeting, he´s jealous of me :-)
black currant bushes in the forest (i know it´s really bad pictures, it´s impossible to see what it really is :-) ). A close relative to black currant lives at our east coast so it´s not strange that they like it out here.
The sun has shined all day, but the wind is bitterly cold so it never became especially warm. I had to scratch the car windows free from ice this morning, so the little rhododendron flower is gone now but more are on their way :-) I had my dogs with me to work today too. It went wery well so I´ll probaly bring them tomorrow too. They did scare somebody away from the factory too :-) It´s a quite open area so people from the village can go around as they please looking for things they might wanna have. But not today :-) Three dogs weighing around 40kg (88 pounds) is a bit scary even if they are on a leash :-) They should only know that my dogs are cowards :-)
Yesterday I saw something that made me happy. We have got red squirrels in the forest again :-) Our hunters have caught some Martens lately and they eat a lot of squirrels if they can. So we haven´t had squirells here for many years. But yesterday my dogs started to look up the pines and then I saw it :-). So now we probably will have them here for a couple of years until the next marten show up. But until then I hope that the squirrels will show up by my birdfeeders in wintertime :-)
Now it´s time for a cup of tea and just to relax, tomorrow I have to work again.
