Yestredays evening sky. Looked quite dramatic and for a while I thought we might get thunder. But the sky cleared up and the night got cold instead.
It´s been a wonderful morning and it looks like it will continue like this for the rest of the day. Temperature is rising (afer a night withe frost) and the wind is weak.A great day to end my two months and one week long sick leave period. So for You that gotten used to read my blog in early mornings things will change. The blog will come later in the day and from now Wednesdays will be blog free.
But it´s only two months left until my vacation starts so I think I´ll survive working until then :-) :-) :-) Everyone working in Sweden have by law the right to five weeks vacation, totally payed when You´ve worked one year in a company. If You haven´t worked a whole year they count the days You have worked and get payed for so many days You are entitled to. We get a tiny bit more than two days payed vacation/month and the counting period goes from April first till March last.
Soldanella (alpina?, montana? I´m not sure what I´ve sown :-) )
Soon they´ll open up.
We also work 40 hours a week even if the law says we only have (I think I´m right now) a 38 hour working week. That gives us compensation time to use when ever we want to. So normally we take some vacation during christmastime also. I usually have troubles with that because I always use my compensation hours to get home a bit early now and again :-) :-) :-) But we have very few national holidays in comparense to the rest of the world.
My new bleeding heart (might be the variety 'King of hearts')
Now they are opening up, the leafs on my yellow leafed Ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius).This one should really have been placed in a more shady place because the sun burns the leafs in the summer.
That is however not a problem for the read leafed one.
I went away to the supermarket early this morning. I realised that I only have a couple of socks left and those are really thick winter socks :-) I also needed more tea. Naturally I got some other things too :-) like the movie Avatar on DVD and I couldn´t pass the plant section without going out there and just take a look :-) :-) Today I came home with a Bleeding heart (Dicentra Formosa). We call this species for Second Lieutenants heart. I´ve now searched through the soil in the pot and there are no snail eggs in it. But it will stay in quarantine for a week or two just incase.
A Trillium bud opening up.
Omphalodes verna, Navelwort. We call it Snake eye but I can´t for my life understand why :-) :-) :-)
Now it´s time for a cup of tea on my kitchen stairs.It´s a wonderful day and I´m going to enjoy it as much as possible.
Have a great day now, I will!
