I would like that summer is official here now. It´s fairly warm and the sun is shining. But the most important sign was that I yesterday evening and just minutes ago got my first bites from horse flies :-) :-) :-) Since the bog is full of water and most of the fly larvaes has survived this will be a terrible summer to remember till senility takes the memories away :-) :-) :-) Suddenly mosquito´s seemes cuddly and nice :-) :-) :-) But thankfully most of those summer killers stays near the forest and bog, so I can still be outside in my garden without getting to many bites from them. They are also late starters in the morning, so my dogs and I can still take our morning walks out there without to much troubles.
The magpies in the area has better memory than I have. I had my kitchen door open yesterday evening and suddenly I heard some strange noice in my kitchen. A magpie had flown in and started to eat the cat food :-) :-) I had forgotten that they learned their young ones that last summer :-) :-) This year I´ll sit hidden somewhere and take a photo if I can, but they bare really smart birds so they will most probably make some test runs first just to see if anything happens :-)
Something similar happens every day at work too, but these birds doesn´t steel any food. It´s swallows that flies in to the factory looking for flies I guess, even if we don´t have especially many flies there. They really are fantastic flyers and can avoid any suddenly appering obsticle without problems. But we have to check every day that all of them has flown out before we close the place down for the day or weekend. They won´t have any problems staying over night, but their younglings needs their food.
When this plant gets seeds we used to pretend it was coffee when we played as children :-)
Have any one of You all ever grown Naranjilla (Solanum quitoense)? I got some seeds two years ago but never sowed them, not until this spring. The fruit is said to be delicious but gets spoiled fast. I now have eight plants in my kitchen window and is wondering if they need tropical heat or if I just can put them outside for the rest of the summer. I´m giving away most of them to others so it would be great if I actually new howe to keep them :-) :-) :-) If I get fruits I´ll save lots of seeds and any one of You can get some if You want.
When the common Lilac starts to fade the Hungarian starts to flower. I like this one better because it doesn´t spread as much and the scent is weaker.
Now it´s time for a cup of tea and then out in to the cyberspace.
Have a great day now!
I´ve gotten some questions about what camera I uses and different lenses I might have. But this is the one I have. It´s a good camera for its price range. We do argue a lot, but more seldom the longer we work together :-) :-) :-)
