Wonderful morning.

This is how it looked at 7am this morning. Unfortunally I´ve got some dirt inside the camera lens so all pictures where I´ve used the zoom You can see some darker spots in the pictures. I think I have got rid of them now and it was probably powder paint from work that had gotten inside the camera. That powder follows me everywhere :-)
It has been a wonderful morning today. The sun had just gone up when we started our morning walk and the air was absolutly still. The ice from last night was just starting to melt away and the few small birds that still are left here started to sing up in the trees . From a distance I could heare soem cranes shouting, but otherwise there were no sound at all.

The last ice on my car is melting away. As soon as the sun starts to shine it´s still so warm that frost stands no chance to stay any longer time.

I could see a lorry filled with timber on the road far away and between us stood cattle eating grass and they seemed to enjoy the morning as much as I did. It was perhaps only four degrees (39F) and not a flie in sight. Drops of water started to fall from the trees, making a sound much like a nice spring drizzle on the dry leafs and grass on the ground.

Bertil followed like he always does.

When we passed the place where I can see my favourite stone, the one I goes to in spring with a thermos with something hot in it just to enjoy the first spring sun, I could see some deers jumping away in the opposite direction. They must know by now that my dogs isn´t ant threat to them, but perhaps instinct lies to deep down inside to let them change that behaviour.

These are some of the plastic balls they made yesterday.

In the places where the sun doesn´t reaches in the morning, the frost stays for an hour or so.

Almost home again we met a neighbour. He has more spare parts in his body than most people I know :-) So nowdays he uses a moped when fetching the morning paper. We don´t have our mailboxes beside our homes here and the distance would probably be to much for him to walk. So he takes his moped and drives different roads to get to the morning paper. By doing so he still has the chance to see what´s happening in the village surroundings.

Pines can be so beautiful.

The walk is over and it´s time to make a pot of tea :-)
It will be a sunny and warm day they say. In my garden it´s so dry again that I´ll have to water in some flowerbeds today. It´s especially the rhododendrons that dries up fast and I do like them so there I stand with the water hoose now and agin. I will most probably have to chase those darn flies out of my home too. Now when it´s so cold outside at nights they take every chanse to spend the nights in my warm and cosy cottage. Since the fasade is made of wood they crawl in to every little space wid enough for them and then in to the inside. But they have a tendency to stay by the windows so they´re easy to get rid of.
Have a great day now, I will!

Hi Christer! I just wanted to thank you for our walk this morning. You are right the air was still and crisp.
Truly when I see your photos I can imagine I am on the walk with you.
Now if I can see a pic of your pot of tea...I also can imagine having a cup.
Thanks again for the lovely post.

Hi Joyce!
I do love this place I´m living in :-) Living like this was nothing I could belive when I was younger walking the streets of Gothenburg.

We´ve had some rain here, but far to little. I do hope that Teddys condition improves soon! One feel so powerless when one can´t do much to help!
Take care of You and Teddy!

I´ll take a picture of my tea if I remember it tomorrow :-)
Have a great day now!

Wonderful walk in the country and how refreshing after a frost. I think I would spend most of my weekend time outside knowing the winter will soon force me away from all this nature. I would have loved to see the deer too. Enjoy your tea, you certainly earned it today.

I sat at the poarch this morning... at seven, believe it or not!;-) Not frost here - but only 3 Celsius degrees by that time.... Soon we will have it here to... I guess ...:-(

Hi Z&M!
As long as we got this fantastic weather I di stay outdoors as much as possible. Soon autumn rain and winter rain/snow will make being outdoors a nasty time :-)

This time the deers were to fast for me, but I´ll get them next time :-) I have posted pictures of deers in this blog before, must have been this spring or late in the winter I think.

Have a great day now!
