The weather didn´t show it self from its best side today. The wind is a strong gale and there comes heavy showers now and again.

Woody has made another video with my pictures in it and put music to them. You can see the video in his blog ‘Good old beans’. It´s great and he has put in a lot of work to make it so. The music is with one of my favourite singers too! Take a look at it!

Bertil absolutly wanted to follow us on the morning walk despit the bad weather.

Last night I woke up in panik. It sounded as something was eating inside my ear. It was terrible and I tried to get what ever it was out of my ear. Strangly enough nothing was there. That didn´t make me much kalmer I can tell You. But after some minutes the sound died out and I was so tired that I fell asleep again. I told my boss in the morning and he started to laughe and asked if I possible had washed my hair the night before. He had heard the same thing several nights and it almost drove him crazy. It´s tiny shampoo bubbles that has come in to the ear and when they dry out and birsts they make that strange sound in the ear :-) :-) :-)

Anemone sylvestris, Snowdrop Windflower. If it likes its enviroment it spreads like crazy, but who cares :-)

The winds has been terrible all night and all day today. They say it´s gale, but I think it´s more of a storm actully. It´s cold too, so I have had a fire in my stowe all afternoon. We took a walk in the forest this morning, but now the wind is even stronger so I think we´ll have to skip more walks today. It´s not totally safe out there I feel. It also feels as if we could drown in some of the showers that comes now and again.

Anemone narcissifolia. Haven´t found any english name for it. This one stood to dark I think because it didn´t flower until a tree was taken down.

Pink shootingstar, Dodecatheon dentatum. I gave away all of mine because it´s to dry in my garden. But one seed germinated and now I have it again :-) I have to give it a lot of water all summer, outherwise it will dry out and die.

So I said good bye to Hobbes yesterday and hello to Piglet. Piglet is a -99 Mazda 323 and I feel that I bought a really good car! It also has a great stereo and it doesn´t drink a lot of petrol. Now when the price is way over six US dollars/ US gallons that is an important thing. Now when summer comes the petrol price will get even higher, I wouldn´t be surprised if it will go over seven US dollars/US gallon now when summer and vacation comes.

Yesterday I said goodbye to Hubbes.

And hello to Piglet :-)

Have a great day now and check out that video now!

That's an excellent video, a fun video, good for Woody. I see he used more of the recent photos you posted. See what happens when you get a good camera? So you now have half the car you had before but much better on gas consumption. Maybe it will drop your monthly gas bill to make it all worthwhile. I bought a Milan for the same reason and it is doing well, much better than the Marquis with the V-8 engine. Boy was that a gas guzzler. Enjoy the car and here's hoping you get some better weather Christer. You deserve some of that summer sunshine.

Hi Z%M!
He knows how to put these things together!

I´ve never seen a Milan before, but I googled it and it´s really great looking! (But a V-( sure sounds terriffic :-) ).

This Mazda is just what I need because it´s just me and my dogs. I put down the back seats so they get space enough.

Better weather is on it´s way already tomorrow and it will get really hot this weekend. Lucky for me it´s holiday on Sunday, so I only work on Saturday :-)
Have a great day now!

VERY nice car, Christer. I love the pictures of your flowers..but..I usually turn off the music (when I visit blogs)as it makes it easier for me to concentrate on the post. So..I will just look at your lovely photo's here.. :)
I am sure your friend Woody did a wonderful job!
Have a great day, Christer!

Wonderful video and music. Piglet is adorable and I'm sure will be a very good companion for you and the dogs. I keep meaning to ask you - do you have actual flower beds or are your flowers scattered about. They are all so beautiful.

Hi Linda!
Yes I think he has dome a great job!
I hope that Piglet will go on for a long time. I know the previous owner and this was a car he really liked. It would probably break his heart if I don´t take really good care of it, so now I have to shape up and do so :-)

I have flowerbeds, but they are a bit flowing in their structure. I don´t mind if wild flowers move in or the plants I have planted spreda out from the beds. So there can be small seedlings anywhere in my lawn :-)

Have a great day now!

You name your cars. How fun. When I was younger my sisters and I used to do that. I think one of them was called bertha. It was a station wagon. Nice pictures again. Thank you for sharing Christer.

Hi Chelle!
Of course a car must have a name :-) I think that Bertha suites a station vagon perfect :-)
Have a great day now!
