Wood anemone. If You click on the photo so it gets bigger You can see small water drops on the petals.
May first is another important day in Sweden, over all of Europé to be honest. It´s a national holiday and one of the few non religious. It´s the workers day today and demonstrations will be held all over the country. It used to be a day were lots of workers were out demonstrating for better living conditions and back than it lots of people were out. Nowdyas most takes it as a family holiday going on picknicks or to the countryside.
They came with this digger yesterday, it was really close to rip down our telephone cables hanging in the air :-)
They are going to use it to dig up tree stumps like the one in the photo below. They are going to make chips of them and then perhaps firelogs I´ll have in my stove :-) Yes the forestowner will make some money out of it, but by taking away the tree stumps they also take away much of the nutrients that new trees must have to grow. So in a couple of years he must fertilize all places where they have taken away the tree stumps and that costs money.
If it hadn´t been for the rather bad weather I think this year would have gathered more people than it has for a long time. It´s election year and it seemes that the governement is going to loose this time. We´re having a right wing governement at the moment and they have changed the laws towards the sick and employeed and made it very difficult for them. The laws had to be strickter but they went to far. Suddenly people dying in cancer was supposed to be healthy enough to work and didn´t get sick pay! One of them died one week after being declared healthy. They have made a lot of changes during the time that has passed, but these things should have been dealt with before changing the laws.
We went down to the creek yesterday afternoon. Naturally it started to rain as soon as we left home :-)
The opposition has promised to give us much higher taxes (we already have the highest in the world) But since we know those taxes will make us keep what we have in health care, education and other thinge we´re used to have. Have You heard about people wanting to have higher taxes before :-) :-) :-) I´m going to wote for the opposition :-)
Soon the marsh marigolds flowers. The one in my pond is way behind.
Well it´s no weather to be outside today. Not especially warm and the winds are strong and now and again somne rain falls down. Not even my dogs or cats wants to stay outside to long now :-) I think I´ll make some tea and later take a small nap :-)
Have a great day now!
