It´s was an almost magical morning when we took our morning walk. No wind and the rain had just stopped falling. The air was filled with the smells only a forest can have after a rain and all birds were singing with joy. Two pairs of geese were flying over us in cirkles, honking like they usually does, I think they were flying to the fields to eat some grass. Dears were “barking” as warning when we were walking out to the bog and even if I wanted to cough I didn´t. It would have distrurbed to much.
Perhaps I still was very influensed by the film Avatar that I looked at yesterday evening. That was one of the most amazing films I´ve ever seen! I would have loved to walk around in a world like that :-) But unfortunally we humans would most probably behave like they did in that film, if we were strong enough. It´s something we unfortunally have shown on and on and on during our history.
The first buds on my clematises.
The first leafs on my Acer tataricum ssp ginnala, Tatarian maple.
There´s no machines out in the forest any more and it´s Sunday so perhaps this magic feeling will stay on for the rest of the day? I can only hope :-) My cottage is warm and nice since there have been a fire in the stove all morning, a pot of tea is ready down in the kitchen and all animals are sleeping all over the place :-)
Have a great day now, I will!
My absolute favourite in my garden, Uvularis grandiflora (Largeflower bellwort). One week more and it will flower I think.
Tulipa tarda, Tarda Tulip. This wild species only becomes around 20cm high (around 8 inches) and self sows richly.
