I can still take pictures with my mobile phone, but it´s not the same since I got used to my camera. Many plants was killed during this nights frost This is one of my bleeding hearts, but they all look the same now.

Looked out the window when I woke up this morning and saw that everything was white. It was only -5C (23F) and I had to scrape ice from the windows of my car before I drove to work. But after that it has been a sunny and rather warm day, if one has managed to avoid the wind, because it was a bit cold too.

One of my Ussurien Elderberry bushes has also gotten hit by the frost. It´ll start growing again, but it´ll take a lot of time.

I still haven´t found my socks :-) It must be a cooperation between my dogs and cats I belive :-) I wonder if they have hid them in the garden? Or perhaps under my sofa? Well if I do find them You´ll be the first to know. The camera is definatly dead so now I´ll have to buy a new one. I hate doing that. I come to the shop and there´s usually a young boy just waiting to show me how stupid I am when it comes to technical things. They talk about things that sounds like science fiction to me. The only thing that I´ll understand is pixels and I know that the more pixels the better, but that´s about it I´m afraid :-)

This Clematis I call Tove after a good friend of mine that died of breast cancer. It starts out as green, goes over to yellow and in the end it´s white. I sowed this one eleven years ago.

This clematis is called 'Propertius'. It has a weak but wonderful aroma.

Tonight is the first semi final of the Eurovision song contest. All betting firms belives Sweden to come to the final on Saturday. Ten songs will go to the final and they belive we will place us as number eight tonight. I´m pretty sure that Turkey and Armenia is comming to the final too. If You want to hear the songs that is competing go to You Tube and search for Eurivision 2009 (it´s over thirty countries so if You want to hear them all it will take some time :-) ). I think all songs are there. So hold Your thumbs (or cross Yor fingers as You say) that we will come to the final on Saturday! I´ll tell You on Thursday how we did.
Have a great day now!

There will be many flowers on my Propertius this year :-)

Hi Christer...yes, it was a typical Mother's Day! Fun..but always a bit of HIGH drama for us!
Runs in the family, I'm afraid.
I loved your pictures today. You will be delighted when you get your new camera. Mine was driving me crazy and then T bought his..and not I have..uh..taken it over. I love the way your Propertius is growing up over your home. I want something like this on this home..so badly. It needs help cozy wise..and I am trying.
I always wonder what it is you find on my blog that is interesting to you. I am not even good in knowing the names of the flowers..but PLEASE don't stop visiting. I would be lost for sure!! :)
I probably won't visit Utube but I am anxious to see how you do in the finals!!

Your last photo is pretty good for a mobile cam. I light the soft colors. Sorry you had frost. Everything was in blossom for a time, now you have to wait again. My wife says to change the sheets on your bed and you will probably find all your sox. I think she knows you . . . or maybe it's me she knows. We are forecasted four days of rain beginning tonight. Had lots of thunder last night but not much rain. We are so dry here that little brush fires are starting by themselves. 300 acres burned in Orlando overnight. Good luck shopping for a new camera. And I will love to know if the song you posted that I listened to wins tonight.

Hi Mona!
I like Your blog beacuse You show a bit of Your self in what You write. It´s Yoyr honesty that shines through in Your writing.

have now bought a new camera and we are already a bit unfriendly towards each other :-) But this time I´ll read all instructions that I got with the camera. I hope that it is as good as my old camera or at least close to it.
Have a great day now!
