Bertil the cat.
It will be a warm day today. Already at five am it had reached 12C (54F) and there´s not a single cloud in the sky at the moment. There´s a weak wind blowing, just enough strong to blow the mosquito´s away.
There were still some haze left when we took our walk.
We took a short walk into the forest so I could feel how my foot worked. It still hurts if not walking on flat ground, but nothing compared with yesterday morning. I´ll most probably go to work tomorrow again.
The wind wasn´t strong enough to reach into the forest so the mosquito´s had a party on me all the time we were there :-) But I can take the itching from those bites, but when the horse flies comes I´ll get crazy :-) :-)
You´ll have to click on this photo so it gets bigger. Then You can see all the cranes on the field. All phot´s gets bigger and better if You click on them.
Bertil followed us as usual, but this time he wasn´t relaxed at all. I think he might have met the fox again because when one of my dogs walked through a bush making some sound, Bertil ran away in panic. Don´t think we will get him to follow us into the forest anytime close again.
The deer’s are getting a bit to used to us now. I saw one just 40 meters (around the same in yards) in front of us. It looked at us and continued to eat whatever it was eating. I had to shout and wave with my arms to make it jump in to the forest again. I and my dogs wouldn´t hurt it, but others may so it´s not good if they doesn´t care when someone comes close.
On our way back we passed a field where there were over 41 cranes. They are what I call the teenagers, those that are too young to nest yet. They didn´t care to much that we walked by them either, but of course they knew that we wouldn´t have a chance to get them even if we wanted to :-)
When we got home I also cleaned the pond pump. It does get a bit muddy in the pond when putting down plants in pots and that sticks soo good in the pump. This year I have six fishes in it. Two fantailed goldfishes (slöjstjärtar) and four Rosy barbs (Praktbarber). None of these can survive a Swedish winter in my pond (I live in what we call a ”chill hole”, gets really cold in winter), so I do hope I can catch all of them when autumn comes.
I do like my Haberlea!
I already have a cup of tea beside me and now it´s time for breakfast.
Have a great day now!
