This is one of those days when the morning promised much more than the rest of the day could keep. When I woke up the sun was just rising and there was only one cloud in the sky. It had been a cold night and the lawn had a thin layer of frost. It looked to become a nice day.
My red berried elderberry ( Sambucus Ussuriensis (I´m not sure that´s the right name, but it was the name I got when buying the seeds) shows its flowers now. A bit early, the relatives in the forest knows that should wait for yet a couple of weeks.
My first and so far only crocus to show a flower bud so far.
Scilla sibirica. In many gardens looked upon as a weed in many gardens. Not by me though :-)
But the lonely cloud soon got company of more and bigger ones and the northern wind helped to keep the temperatures low. I drove to the grocery store in Gudhem and I think there are more people by the lake than there are cranes now :-)
I had hoped that I would be able to work some in my garden today, but the cold winds stops that effective. The most exiting thing that has happened today was when one of my neigbours dogs came visiting :-) It´s a Basenji and those dogs doesn´t bark. They beep, scream and someting they call yodel. That yodel sounds more like a strange burp but it sounds better if one calls it a yodel :-)
The little girl had run away from her owner (happens most of the times they are without leash) and for some reason all her dogs on the loose thinks it´s fantastic fun to come and visit my dogs even though they aren´t that happy about these Basenjies. Normally I stay outdoors to see if I can see the owner, but today I heard her shouting in a high pitched voice to get the dogs attention, so I went inside. The last thing I saw the little dog do was eating cow dung and then take a roll in it :-) :-)
Well, it´s time to start a fire in the stove now. The northern winds is perhaps not that cold but it still makes me shiver inside. I´ll make a pot of tea and make a couple of sandwiches from that delicious bread I made yesterday :-)
Have a great day now!
