Perhaps I should make myself an autumn wreath this year. I have plenty of these big rosehips and I can pick some acorns in the forest. I haven´t done any since I closed my gardencentre/nursery so perhaps it´s about time now.
The sun is shining and it is 14C (57F) outside. Autumn is here for sure now. They say it will become warmer again and that the rain will keep away this week. I love cool mornings but I´m not that fond of cold mornings and that is waht we have now. It was 5C (41F) this morning and I guess that the first night with frost comes next week or so. If it doesn´t the autumn usually gets long and warm. I do hope for that!
I sowed a seed from a Paradise apple nine years ago and this year the first fruits showed. If I remember correctly the apple I took the seds from were bright red, this looks more like a normal apple, but very tiny. I think I´ll try to eat one of them :-)
When I go to the store I almost always pay with my bank card, if I have money on me I always spend them to fast :-) So naturally I didn´t have any money on me when I went to the grocery store in Gudhem when I went there yesterday. I´m really glad that they know me there because they card system didn´t work. The lightning had struck several times when we got that storms on Saturday and their internet connection had died totally. It didn´t work again until it was time to close for the day. We do live in a very wounerable world these days. If internet goes nothing works :-) :-)
One of the species of Katydids we have here. This one looks much like a gigant grasshopper, but we have those looking a bit like aliens too :-) :-)
The common red toadstool. We call them Fly musrooms, I think we do that because they made a fly poisson from it bac in the days. This i also the mushroom the vikings mixed in their mead. After that they wn berserk. Well they didn´t have tv so what should they do on a saturday evenig :-) :-) :-)
Bertil ha decided that he wanted to go out to an island in the bog on this little bridge that Yu hardly can see because of the high water level. I told him it was a bad idea for such a tiny cat.
He stood there for quite some time until he decided I probably was right. He weighs only four pounds after all :-)
For once I have lots of time today. I went from work two hours earlier than usual (so I could go to the store and pay my bill) and it feels like I have had the whole day off :-) :-) My dogs and I was trying a part of the forest we´ve never been in before, but all rain we´ve had lately made it feel like we were going in a swamp. So we went back to our usual areas but it wasn´t much better there to be honest. But who am I to complain really. Thousands of people are drowning all around the world just because thet have got so much more rain than we have.
Now there´s a fire in the stove and a pot of tea by my side. Well it´s to much to say that there´s a fire in the stove. For some reason the fire log won´t burn especially good. It sort of only glows. I think that the firelog is to dense so the fire just stays on the surface. The quality can vary quite much between different brands.
Have a great day now!
No I haven´t forgotten :-) You have to click on this photo to make it bigger to see her, our little doe tha always stands on the same place every morning when we take our walk. I´ve never seen her here before so perhaps that was why I didn´t see her until ater I took this photo.
