I had just finished mowing my lawn when this thundercloud came by and started to act with a bad attitiude :-)
It is one of those days when nothing seemes to be fun. Not even walking around in my cottage killing flies speaking with a german accent :-) :-) I think it is the weather that affects us now, becuase many of us at work felt the same way today. It´s dark and cold here for almost seven months every year, so when summer doesn´t arrive as it should it gets to us. I can´t even imaging how it will be when winter comes if we´re going to have a summer like this. The sun now goes up 4am and down 11:11 pm in Falköping.
The clouds today looks much the same I´m afraid. This one isn´t a thundercloud, yet.
I ordered three mini kiwi plants yesterday via the net. The "real" kiwi fruit can´t survive for long here where I live, but these relatives can. The only problem is I have no place to put them :-) :-) :-) They are vines and will become rather large with age. The only place I can have vines at is occupied by a rose, a honeysuckle and my grape vine. I´m going to cut down the honeysuckle (but don´t worry, I´ll take cuttings and place by a deat tree I think) and the rose, so the grape vine gets more sun and a better chance to get ripe grapes. So I´m thinking of buying rebars and have them stnading by them selves somewhere in the garden.
But how to get them home? My car is very small (even if I can get three dogs over 90 pounds each in the back). Perhaps rent a wagon? or look sad in front of friends that has two smaller lorries that bthey use when they are out selling spices on markets :-) :-) :-) Mini kiwi´s tastes somewhat like gooseberries. Could be a nice marmelade or jam fruit I think. The vines in them selves are rather nice too.
A wasp queen feeding on the tree peony´s pollen. She and her doughters will eat more flies than I can ever kill during a summer. Do You know that almost all wasps are female and sisters? The males, drones, lives just a short while to keep the species alive.
The flower on the arctic bramble. I might actually get a berry or two already this year :-)
I think I´ll watch some football(soccer) this evening, or perhaps I should look at the film 2012. It´s about the and of the world and would fit my mood very well I think :-) :-) :-) Now the tea is ready and it´s time for me to visit You all out in the cyber space!
Have a great day now!
