The rising of the Midsummer pole in Gudhem (Gods home). If You use Your dirty imagination You´ll see what that really is :-) :-) But to be honest, most people doesn´t know that.
The sun is shining but there are some clouds lurking around in the neighbourhood. But I think it might be fog slowly rising from the ground and that athey will dissapere before blowing with the wind to an unfortunate position blocking the sun for us here in the village.
Now all flowers on the Guelder-rose has opened up. It almost looks like some hydragenas and since most hydragenas can´t survive here I really would like to have a couple of guelder-roses in my garden. I have two cuttings in pots now and is hoping for the best.
Bertil followed us as usual. My neighbours always laugh when they see us comming :-) :-) That cat really has some identity problems :-)
We went out on our morning walk already at 5:30 and the temperature had only reached 12 (54F). Since the flies were so active in the forest yesterday morning, we walked by the fields instead. Birds were already singing and flocks of starlings went like waves over the fields catching insects or worms. Usually we have a starling nesting somewhere on my neighbours house, that sounds like a Cuckoo clock :-) :-) But he hasn´t arrived this year. I´ve heard him for the last ten years, so now I miss him very much.
These cattles are semi wild so that bull is nothing to play with :-) But it´s the cows that is really dangerous. If they see me and my dogs and feel we are dangerous towards their calfs they will defend themselves. Thankfully the fields they walk on is hughe so they know that they can walk away if they feel the need. It has happened that people walking their dogs through fields like this has been attacked. Even if it is allowed to walk through fields with cows it´s just plain stupid to do so, especially if they have a dog with them.
It was a bit colder by the fields so there were almost no flies flying around at all and not a mosquitoe in sight either. Since it´s a day after a holiday no cars could be heard at that time either. The feeling of being the only one left in the world followed me all the way. Now however I know that at least my neighbours further down the road is alive. They are taking care of their doughters two small dogs and they bark as soon as they get out in the morning :-) :-)
Teodor greated us when we came home. He almost never follows us on our walks any longer.
He preferes to stay indoors and sleep behind my lap top :-)
I´ve made the banana pie and I tasted the vanilla pudding mixture. I ever, never say "OH MY GOD!" But I will do that now. It´s deliucious!!! It is worth dying for I think :-) :-) :-) This will spread, I´m certain of that. I now know where to find condensed milk, so now we´ll have to figure out a replacement cookie for the Nilla wafers. It´s going to be fun to see my friends faces when they taste this :-)
I´ve learned one thing this morning. If I play with cutting photo´s and happens to save the changes, the original photo is deleted??!! :-) :-) Well, You can see my bananapie and how I followed the instructions on Joyce´s blog Octoberfarm.
The Beauty bush, Kolkwitzia amabilis, has started to flower. We call it Paradise bush.
The tea pot is ready and it´s time for some breakfast. My potatoes will soon be ready to be put in to the ground and then I´ll tell You a couple of ways to grow potatoes.
Have a great day now!
