I´m running a bit late today, the computor and I don´t agree on much right now. But we will get there one day, I hope :-) :-) :-) It still tells me that someone is using the modem when it has shut down itself, so then I´ll have to restart it and just hope for the best :-)








It´s raining and it´s so cold that the radiators are on again. Normally when June is this bad Juky becomes great. But it can be one of those summers when it never gets real warm too. I remember one midsummers eve when it was colder than it was at new years eve the same year.








My tomatoe plants and tomatillos doesn´t grow at all right now and they look just miserable to be honest. Just as well that I forgot to sow the melon seeds, nothing would have happened to them anyway.








I need one more day to come up with seven things about myself again. It was a bit harder than I thought it would be :-) :-) For some reason I don´t remember anything about my life at the moment :-) :-) I think I´ll have to read "Keep The Coffee Comming" To see if Kat´s writing triggers my brain to remember anything fun or interesting :-) She is great doing that!









I might be a bit late with my blog tomorrow. I´ll take a little trip south to my old home town Gotheburg. I found an interesting fact about that town earlier this year. It actually has two official names and they were both written down in the town privileges when the town was founded. It´s called Göteborg and also Gothenburg already from the start (the dutch called it New Amsterdam for many years because how it looked back then with canals for instance). I think that is unique in Sweden and perhaps in the world. The town was founded 1621.



Well it´s time to finish the pot of tea I´ve made and then out in to cyberspace.
Have a great day now!



Wild gooseberry. It´s easy to see that it´s a wild one because of all "hair" on the berry.

Maybe there's something internal in the computer that is telling it that there is already somebody online. Do you have the Administrator keyed on? Give your expert a call and see if they can't tell you what's happening. I had the same thing happen, once, and it turned out to be a switch inside...love the floral pix and the little snail...hope it warms up for you...I had to get all new summer plants because my others died while I had bronchial pneumonia...next year, will definitely NOT have a spring garden, moves the summer one too far back...catch you, later...

Hi, Christer
Looks like the snails are having a great time in your garden. The snails I have here don't have nice shells on them.
Weather here is cold and grey, too. It reminded me of the time I had to turn the heat on July 4th because it had been 48F for three days and the house was just too cold to bear any longer.
Enjoy your tea.

That's interesting. Two names for one city. So did you have to pay your taxes twice? uuummmm. Lovely photos again Christer. I like to see you out there walking the dogs. Good luck with that new computer.

Hi Sharlene!
I´m guessing You´re right about that. I´ll have to phone the company that deals with the internal of the computor.

Our seasons are so short so we barly have just spring flowers :-) Dai´sies and pansys of course, but the rest is our summer plants that we plant early :-)

Have a great day now!
Christer.

Hi Caryn!
This weather is heaven for those snails :-) We do have some without shells too, but not many.

It is a bit annoying to have to start thye radiators in the middle of the summer! But I hope it´ll turn soon!
Have a great day now!
Christer.

Hi Z&M!
I thought so too, especially since Sweden always has been seen as a one language country. It has also been called little London :-) No, we just had to pay taxes once, that´s bad enough sometimes :-) :-) :-)


We will start working great together, one day :-) :-)
Have a great day now!
Christer.

Idag har nog mygge blåst bort för resten av sommaren ;-)
Hoppas du har det trevligt i Götet!
Bina håller sig i kuporna när det är blåsigt, mestadels är de inte ivägen om man inte rör sig på en radie av tio meter från kuporna....
Men det är inte kul om man hamnar i deras inflygningsstråk!
Men honung är gott! O de flesta biodlar-föreningar har nybörjarkurser ;-)
Ha´t himla gôrgôtt

Love the snails and the bleeding hearts are so beautiful. They're coming along fabulously.

Yes, vegetables need a lot of sun for growing, so it's hard when it's overcast. We're having rain here today as well.

What's the purple flower?

Tjänare Nina!
Problemet är väl bara att andra blåser hit istället :-) :-)

Tyvärr går det inte alltid att övertyga andra om det du skriver. Bin sticks! därmed basta.

Jag har allt kollat upp om kurser :-)
Ha det gott!
Christer.

Hi Perovskia!

I do like these snails to since they don´t do any damage on my plants :-) and the bleading hearts are at its best right now.

It seemes that´s the weather we´re getting this summer I´m afraid. The purple is the buds on a rhododendron Catawbiense.

Have a great day now!
Christer.
