It was one of those mornings again when it was impossible to belive there were other humans here than me left in the world. The fog lay heavy over the fields and I could hear water drops falling from the high trees around me and the pigeons were cooing in the tree tops.

Deers were “barking” around us as we walked out into the bog and I could hear the clicking of their hooves as they ran away. The Cuckoos cuckoing ekoed over the bog and when it silened another answered from the other side of the bog.

We have lots of these mosquito farms near the bog.

As we turned homewards I heard the woodpeckers drum rolls and some geese were flying low over our heads. A light drizzle started to fall and the closer we came to home, the more intense it got. I still had the feeling of being the only human left in the world, even if I understood that my neighbours now were awake since smoke came out of their chimneys.

Rosa glauca.

The white Wodd anemone can also be blue like this one will be when it opens up.

It will be a day of realxing for me today. I will ofcourse make a pot of tea in a while, perhaps I´ll even drink it outside on my patio, listening to the sound of raindrops on the plastic roof, since it quite warm today. Yesterday evening I did something I never thought I would ever do, I and a couple of other people were invited to Bjurums castle. Perhaps I´ll tell You about that tomorrow :-)

Have a great day now!

Allergies. The Birch has started to flower.

Christer, that first photo is an award winner! Truly beautiful. And the M farm is more like a swamp, I think. skitters love ponds, anything that holds water. The dogs look like they're having fun. The flowers are really nice. I think you are a photo journalist. This makes for a really nice visit. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your tea.

Hi Z&M!
If the crabapple tree flowers this year You´ll see a really beautiful photo! But it´s old and doesn´t have the strength for it any longer.

Yes the dogs ogs are happy out there in the forest, imagine all the smells and scents they can feel :-) and there´s a lot of sticks to chew on too :-)
Have a great day now!

hi christer.....allergies...tell me about it! i have allergies soooo bad. sycamores are some of the worst trees for pollen and i have two huge ones right outside my front door. every time i walk outside i start sneezing and coughing. i have a very loud sneeze and it scares the bajeebers out of teddy. so just when you think you are all alone in the world a delivery truck will rumble down your road and deliver ingredients to make banana pudding. then you will know the american alien is out there somewhere!!! haha!!! when you are ready to make it i will send you the recipe. i stupidly forgot to include it in the box....joyce

Oh Christer, I'm so envious. You are living a life I wish to someday. Surrounded by nature, a fireplace, pots of tea and animals. What more to life is there? :)

Tell me what you mean, though, about deers 'barking'. I remember seeing deer come right up to the house when I used to live in the country, and I remember no such 'barking' :)

Enjoy your quiet, peaceful day. I look forward to hearing about the castle!

Hi Joyce!
I´m thankfully not that allergick :-) But soem years they flower so much that everything is covered with pollen and then I have big troubles. Birches are the worst ones here.

It depends on if it is the original mailman that drives when the pakage comes. He´s great and leaves the pakage by my door if the weather is ok :-)I´m looking forward to it :-)

It´s perhaps better to get the recipe by mail, so I can put it in my computor directly. I´ll be in touch when the time is right :-)
Have a great day now!

Hi Perovskia!
Moving out here was the best thing I´ve ever done :-)It´s impossible to get stressed out here :-)

They sort of bark when they warn for dangers, like me and my dogs. I can´t describe the sound in a better way, it does sound much like a dog barking :-)

It´s been a really nice day today :-)
Have a great day Your self!
