My dogs and cats just lies on the floor, not following every step I take as they usually does. It´s to hot today. It´s over 28C (82F) and the wind is still rather hard so it feels like walking in a hot owen right now. I bought a bubbel level but it´s to hot to do anything at all. But I´m not complaining, not at all. I love this weather because it´s so seldom we have it. We never knows how spring will be here, can be cold and rainy or as this year summer hot. Autumn is rainy and winter is dark and either warm and rainy or hellish cold :-)
We don´t have sunflowers in the wild in Sweden, but we have these instead. It´s called "Slåtterfibbla" in swedish (Spotted Cat''s-ear (Hypochoeris maculata), and when that flowers farmers knows it´s time to start making hay.
No burgulars at work today :-) But it was so warm that the paint dried to fast so it looked like dust had sprayed all over it :-) But that´s life sometimes :-)
Vacation time has started over here and I notice that on the traffic out on the roads. One way to spot a person from a big city is because they stop on highways to take pictures of cows :-) and one can see how happy they are to get that picture :-) They can also drive really slowly so they can see the scenery. They don´t want to miss anything :-) Unfortunally we who lives here doesn´t always appreciate that, we see it all the time and sort of forgets that it´s really beautiful here.
Then we have the caravans. They seemes to come in flocks of two hundred and all drivers looks really stressed. Many people have set up goals of what they have to do during vacation and when something goes wrong they get really stressed over that. I never set up goals during vacation, I mean vacation is for relaxing and having fun wether You are at home or travelling. I take the day as it comes instead. Why try to make life harder than one has to?
There´s not much water in the big creek now.
Normally the water level is one meter higher (3,3 feet).
We may not be able to have the Snapdragon as a perennial over here, but who needs it when we have this close relative in the nature? This is a Linaria vulgaris.
Well I still have nine working days till I get my four weeks of vacation, so until then I´ll make some pots of tea and enjoys the weather :-)
Have a great day now!
