It has been a rather cool day soo far. Sometimes the sun shows it self and sometimes it rains. We have a kind of flie here that we call forestfly. They doesn´t bite or anything like that, but they comes in thousands. It doesn´t bother me as long as they just fly around me or just walks around on my arms or so. But they have a nasty tendensy to try to get into ones nose or ears and that I really hate. So this morning I brought my mosquitoe hat with me :-) I had black clouds around my head but that didn´t bother me since my ears and nose were protected :-)
I have three goldfishes in my pond now. I really didn´t want that, I wanted smaller fishes but they didn´t have that at the petshop right now. These goldfishes have these long fins and can´t make it outside during winter, so they´ll have to spend winter in my aquarium.
Just before I was going on my trip north I got two books from my friend Joyce that has the blog 'Octoberfarm'. She thought I might like them and how right she was! Thanks Joyce!
The first book that You can see pictures from here is about hoses from many places in the world. The first place it´s showing is the home of our most loved painter, Carl Larsson. Most sweeds could kill to have a home like that :-) I´ll tell You more about this book later, but I can tell You already now that it is wonderful!
The second book was about no so common perennials. Since it´s written by an american it´s interesting to see how americans looks on perennials we have over here. Like the Wood anemone. We love it since it´s one of the first to flower here and it covers the ground like a carpet. But we who knows it well warns people to plant it in a garden (even if we do have it our selves :-) :-) ). It spreads like mad and can in that way kill other plants we like. The author warns about that in this book, he knows what he´s talking about.
The great thing with this book is that it actully describes plants that all can live around my home. That´s a rare thing in swedish garden books. They usually only describes plants that only survives in the best zones here. Swedish authors seemes to think that we all live along the coast line in sothern Sweden, most of us doesn´t. I´ll tell You more about this book later on too.
Now the sun shines again and who knows for how long? :-) So have a great day now! I will!
