I´m at home today and probably tomorrow to. I slipped in the paint box yesterday, just before I was going home. I had forgotten how slippery that paint was (I´m a powder painter if You don´t know that) and had cleaned the box and was just about to go out from it when I slipped. It was so slippery that I couldn´t stand up without falling again. It was quite funny to be honest :-)
Buttercup, Ranunculus repens. It´s not such a bad weed if You have sandy soil like me in the garden. Otherwise it´s terrible, but beautiful just the same.
Another one that is a bit to happy to spreading itself, Geranium pyrenaicum. It can have this color or white or pink. I think I have them all. It has spread from my garden out into the nature now :-)
A third one that should be avoided if You don´t like weedy perennilas. Euphorbia 'Fireglow' (I think that´s the name anyway).
It did hurt some when going home and also later on that evening, but nothing compared to what it did this morning :-) :-) :-) But I had to go to a meeting where the union should explain the details in the latest wage negotiations for us in the industry (thankfully I still have my crutches since the hip surgery). It isn´t especially much that we´re getting but it´s something anyway.
A favourite of mine. Geranium phaeum, Mourning widow. Is also one that can spread a lot. Likes to grow in deep shadow.
Polemonium something. We call them Jacobs ladder over here.
Black chokeberry, Aronia melanocarpa. A beutiful little bush but I got really dissapointed at the berries. I´ve heard so much about them, but to be honest they taste like crap!
After I had listened to that I drove to my job and told them I couldn´t work. I could see how tired they already were because it´s a warm and sunny day today. Working in a painting workshop is warm even at wintertime, during summer it can be nasty warm. I drink around 8 liters of water (a bit more that two US gallons) on hot summer days.
I found this beetle one morning in my Ginnala maple (Acer tataricum ssp. ginnala). I have no idea what it can be called but I think it´s beautiful. It was a bit longer than one inch, almost three centimeters.
Another beautiful beetle. It shined like bronze in the sunlight.
I went to the grocery store in Kvänum on my way home and bought two big bags of tea :-) So now I have a cup just beside me when writing this :-) :-) :-) It won´t be much of walking the coming days, but I do have a lot of photo´s to show from when I didn´t have any computer :-)
The lilacs by my entrence. They smell already strong even if the flowers isn´t open yet. Soon the smell will be so strong that I can´t stay for long at that side of my cottage. Headache is a nice name for what I get then :-)
Now it´ll be some more tea and then some rest in front of the tv
Have a great day now!
