I start with my sensory problems in my left leg so You don´t have to think about that any more. It comes and goes and now I´ve understood why, because I´ve got troubles with my left arm and my spine too. For those of You that doesn´t know I have a disease called psoriatic arthritis. It´s the same as the skin disease but turns inside the body instead and then attacks the articular cartilage. The areas attacked gets inflamed and swollen and then nervs can get clamped. Pain is of course a part of it but I have pills that reduces the inflammation so now it´s quite good again. This is the reason my hips went down the drain and I now have hip implants.
The birches are getting green now. If You look on the field You see that the soil gets almost orange towards the end. That´s rust because the grounds here contains lots of iron.
It´s grey and cold outside this morning ( only 5C (41F) and it won´t rise especially much during the day they say) and the wind made it quite unpleasant to take a walk out on the fields. I wanted to take the walk in the forest but they are already out there with forest machines collecting the tree stumps that are spread all over the area. I had hoped thay at least wouyld stay at home during the weekend. Soon they will start the replanting of the forest and this time they will plant deciduous trees like Oak, Beech, Maple, Ashtree and Cherry trees.
One of the big piles with tree stumps.
This is a little rose I´ve sown, Rosa pulverulenta. I couldn´t fins any english name for it but if I translate the swedish name it´s "Pillow rose". It only geta around 1 foot 6 inches high and 1 foot 3 inches wide. It´s quite hardy and survived in pots on the ground this winter. It´s said to be hardy in zone 5, US zones.
If this had happened before 2005 they would only have planted Spruce and Pine but the hughe storm Gudrun changed that. It fell so many trees during that storm that they just piled them in hughe stacks on an old air field. Two days ago the last of those trees on that place were taken to be used to make paper. Especially spruces need lost of rocks and stones to stand tseady in a storm as strong as Gudrun and many places like here doesn´t have that. So nowdays more and more leaf trees are planted. The forest will change caracter and I think I´ll like it in the long run.
Cowslip, Primula veris.
The first trillium has opened up :-)
Now there´s a fire in the stove and a pot of tea is waiting downstairs in the kitchen. My cats are outside most of the days and nights, but my dogs preferes to stay indoors. At thew moment Hector is sleeping in my bed, Orvar beside me and the old lady down stairs in the living room. Today I think I´ll see Avatar that I bought last week.
Have a great day now!
