I´m a bit tired and really doesn´t have much to say today. So I´ll just show some photo´s and some comments about them if necessary. I´ll drag myself down to the kitchen and make a pot of tea ofcourse and then I think I´ll fall asleep infront of the tv :-)


Have a great day now!















This plant, Haselwort or European wild ginger (Asarum europaeum) is used as a ground cover plant. Takes it slow in the beginning and then spread like mad :-) Doesn´t mind if it is very dry where it grows.


The flower isn´t much to brag about though :-) 
 
 
The japanese wood poppy.
 
Teodor was out all night and all day, so he was so tired he didn´t even notice I took this photo of him :-)
 
 
 
Not the best photo I know, but I wanted to show it to You. It´s an apple tree (or the beginning of one anyway). I´ve sown it from a seed from one of my own apple trees several years ago. I won´t allow it to grow as it pleases since I got the idea in my head that it should have the shape of a fan. So i will allow it to grow along the fence behind it (well there is a fence behind it even if it is hard to see :-) :-)  ), but not to the other directions.It sort of already had much of that shape, so this year I just hade to prune it a little :-)

Teddy is fast asleep. Had a big hunting day outdoors. Photos are nice and so is the apple tree. I can barely make out the fence though.

Hi Z&M!
He slept so hard :-) He went out again this morning at 5am :-)

There are a lot of raspberry bushes that hides that fence :-) I´ll have to get rid of them I think :-)
Have a great day now!

HI Joyce!
I think he might have been :-)

Yes, I don´t know why though. It just came over me when I came home :-)
Have a great day now!

I like how Teodor's back paws are curled up :) Babu does that, too :) He's such a pretty colour..

Have a great day now!

Sometimes, the best thing is falling asleep in front of the TV! (It's nice to be able to project one's flaws onto someone else to ease the guilt...) Did that just yesterday, after a very exhausting week. Pics are great and I feel like Teodor, right now...

I never sleeps as good anywhere else as I do in front of the tv :-) :-)

I can imagine You have loads to do now when spring and summer has arrived :-)
Take care now!
