We managed to take our walk before the rain today. Bertil met us on the way so I choosed another part of the forest and he didn´t complain at all. As You might remember he got panic the last time we were out into the forest since he probably thought a fox were comming through the bushes. He stayed close to big Orvar all the time though. I think those two are inseparable nowdays.
It´s fun to see those two together. Big Orvar weighs 99 pounds and Bertil around 4 :-)
I think it´s only one fly left in my cottage now, so I feel no need for talking with a german accent :-) It challanges its fait however. It cirkles around my head and sometimes it lands on the flyswatter :-) But I´m not petty minded, it can have its fun now, I´ll swat it later :-)
Pretty shooting star, Dodecatheon pulchellum. Here we call it "Twelve gods flower because that´s what dodecatheon is said to mean.
The second of my irises to soon bloom. Iris sibirica, I think You call it Sibirian iris in english.
This was something I didn´t want to see, aphids. We call them leaf lice over here. But I saw atleast two Lady bugs. Lady bugs eats aphids and so does their younglings. I can say that from what I saw there will be many younglings close to these aphids :-) :-)
I woke up at two am last night. It itched so much from four mosquitoe bites on my ancle that I just couldn´t sleep. I had to scratch it so hard that it started to bleed and ache instead. When it did that I finally could fall back in to sleep again. Tonight I´ll take the bottle of "itching removing" (that was something I have no idea what it could be called in english :-) :-) :-) but I hope You get what I mean) up to my bed table. Just knowing the bottle will be there will most probably make the itching less terrible.
Aquilegas can look soo different. Just look on this and commimg photo´s.
We have lots to do at work and that´s a good thing of course. But in the same time people have lost their jobs, so why not rehiring some of them? No, it´s better if the ones left works overtime, why that´s better I have no idea though :-) Overtime isn´t especially cheap and there´s always the risk that we will hurt ourselves when becomming tired. I mean, I hurt myself all the time even when I´m not tired :-) :-) :-) So my closest boss will star working at five am and I will stay later until six pm. I refused to work on the weekend, I´m not twenty any more.
This and the next one is called 'Clematiflora'. The flowers on thses aquilegas looks like the ones on clematises.
But now it´s time for a cup of tea and then out into the blog world to read Your blogs!
Have a great day now!
