Thin layers of mist were sort of floating around in the village before the sun had heated up the air.
It was really cold this morning -5C (23F) and the ground was covered with a thin layer of frost. But since the sun was going up and I could feel the heat from it I didn´t mind. It was a wonderful morning. I could hear cranes out on the fields, a woodpecker just above my head and some Black grouse cocks trying to impress on the hen out on the bog. Unfortunally they are very shy so if I want to see them doing it I have to stay out all night under behind a shelter. I´m not that kind of person any more :-) :-)
The ditches out on the fields were frozen, but when we came inside the forest the water was unfrozen.
To make the morning even better I once again saw the two squirrels we have here. Normally we don´t have squirrels here because of the martens. Martens loves to eat squirrels and they are very fast and effective doing so. Even if I do like martens I like squirrels even more :-)
After the walk I drove to my work just to say hi to my work friends. Some of them had been given notice of losing their jobs but since it seemes they have rather a lot to do most belives that they won´t have to quit. So most of them doesn´t care that much at the moment. But some does give the place a rather infected feeling. Especially since I didn´t get that notice and have worked there a shorter time than them. But it all comes down to competense and I have the right competence and lots of it.
If one is very much into snowdrops it´s the small things that is important. This flower has for instance a thick area with green on the upper part of the petals, but just thin on the bottom.
This however has thick layers both on the top and the bottom. I´m not that much in to snowdrops so I have no idea if these are two common species or if anyone is more rare. Perhaps a snowdrop lover sees these and starts to drool over my rare species today :-) :-)
The leaders of the union at work have had a tough time explaining why things are like they are and now they have gotten tired of it all. Next week they´ll have a meeting with all members if they want an union board of our own or if they want the big union to take over. If they still want a board of our own I will most likly become the new leader of the union. I´m the only one willing to take that job and I seldome have troubles telling any one what I think about anything :-) :-) Next week we all now :-) :-)
It looks as if my yellow Helleborus (Christmas rose) only will give me one flower this year. To my big dissapointment the flower tends to get more and more green for every year. It was butter yellow in the beginning.
I feel I can never show to many Hepatica nobilis (don´t they have an english name?). I have a couple of plants in my garden including a pink filled one.
The sun is shining outside and even if it isn´t much warmer outside today my kitchen door stays open and soon I´ll have a cup of coffee on the kitchen stairs (I´m all out of tea You see). The cold wind from yesterday is gone so it is quite nice outside. Perhaps I´ll plant the seedlings from last year in bigger pots today. Some of it I´ll plant in my own garden, but some is going to plant exchanging days. That is something we have here because most of us that sows our own plants usually sows to much :-) We can´t keep it all, so we get together a couple of times every year and changes plants with each other. That´s a good way to keep costs down and to get new interesting plants to the garden.
Have a great day now!
