It rains outside, sometimes a nice drizzle sometimes a bit more heavy showers. I realised that we need the rain much more than I thought. When I made the small place for my potatoes I realized that the ground was totally dry just a couple of centimeters (an inch) down. As I wrote, my garden soil contains mostly of sand so it dries out fast. The funny thing is that just some meters (some yards) outside my garden its a totally different soil in the ground. The bog starts just behind my garage and it´s almost never completely dry there.
The morning walk was so pleasant that I almost totally forgot to take any photo´s :-) But I have around 200 photo´s You haven´t seen yet, so I just use some of them today :-)
This will be a day of relaxation I feel. I´ll go to the grocery store in Gudhem and perhaps I´ll drive in to Falköping too. I´ve seen ads in the papers and here on the internet that there are many cameras for sale now. It would be fun to get a more advanced one but even on sales they do cost a lot.
I think it´s almost seven years since I could see my patio from the garden :-) It´s been covered by honeysuckle and a climbing rose (with lots and lots of really sharp and big thorns). I haven´t gotten rid of the roots of those yet and that´ll be a nasty job. My dead nectarine tree is still standing there too, but I think I´ll let it stay and plant a clematis or two by its side. If You look on the pillar furthest away You can see my Frost grape vine. Now it´s supposed to take the place where the honeysuckle and rose has had.
I´ve always loved Minolta´s cameras, but now I´ve heard that that company doesn´t exist any more! So I´ve been looking at some different Cannons and Nikons instead. But even on sales they cost around 4600 swedish kronor (that would be around 614 US dollars) That´s almost a third of what I get payed a month from work after taxes :-) :-) I really don´t need a new camera to be honest, but what does need have to do with anything :-) :-) :-)
Iliamna remota, Kankakee mallow. It´s very rare and grows only in a small place in Illinois and nowhere else (in the wild that is). Seemes to love it here in my garden too. I never see any seeds, but still I have small seedlings in the flowerbed.
Kitaibelia vitifolia, Vine-leaved Kitabelia. A Mallow relative that also seemes to like it in my garden.
So I guess I´ll just drive home after Gudhem and continue to read Winnie the Pooh. I always read those books when my vacation starts. Sort of puts things in perspective if You know what I mean, because those books shows what´s really important in life. Cameras doesn´t exist in them at all :-) :-)
Well it´s time for breakfast and a cup of tea. Teodor and Bertil is sleeping beside my feet and all dogs sleeps in my livingroom. Perhaps I´ll join them in a nap too :-)
Have a great day now!
