So this is it.

It looks like someone has cut through the stem of the sunflower, but since everyone has been so careful not to break it before I think that it´s just the winds that has been to strong lately. 

So this is it, my last post on Blogspot. At least for this time. I have had a couple of blogs here on Blogspot, the first one when I started my gardencentre/nursery five years ago and I have always had smaller problems here, but no problems like I´ve had these last weeks. So Now I will be moving to a new blog with almost the same name (instead of writing Cranelake I by accident wrote Crane lake :-) :-)  ). I´ll put in a link in the end of this post to my new blog home.

It´s been a rather nice, cool sunny day here but the winds have been strong all the time. Our walk before the sun went down was both warm and cold. When we walked in the shadows I wished I was closer to home and when we walked in the sun I wished the day would never end :-)

I´m having a fire in the stove and a pot of tea by my side. The wind is howling outside and I feel that it will be nice sitting inside close to the stove listening to the wind and reading blogs on the computer. I feel a bit sad leaving this place but glad that I did find a new place with hopefully less problems loading my photographs. To be honest, my blog wouldn´t be much without them :-)

So now I say adieu from The cottage by the Cranelake and I wish You all welcome to The cottage by the Crane Lake instead :-)
I´ll start posting there on Thursday
Have a great day now!

Welcome to Wordpress!

I knew you were planning to take that bedrazzled sunflower over to word press so I flew over and used GPS to find it and lower it to the ground. Got back this morning. I wanted to make sure you start fresh over at your new home. Besides, weren't we getting tired of watching the flower die? I was. Did you get Bertil's permission to move?

Hi Kat!
Thank You :-)
Have a great day now!

Hi Z&M!
:-) :-) :-)
But You missed the second one that grows not far away :-) So I think I´ll start with a last photo of a sunflower in my new "home" :-) But I promise that it will be the last photo :-)

Bertil doesn´t care as long as he gets photographed :-) :-)

Have a great day now!

hi christer...now i will go and update you so you can still be on my sidebar. i hope i can do that! joyce

jaz@octoberfarm said...

me again! the Blog Tech wanted me to ask you if you get to take your followers with you when you move to wordpress or do you have to start over again?

Robin Larkspur said...

Argh, I hope I can continue to follow you, I suppose I will have to bookmark you and click there. Should be okay, at least you are not disappearing off the web entirely, we would all miss your walks and your dogs, and kitties, as well as that cup of tea by the stove. Good luck on Word Press.

Oh dear..I am NOT good at things like this. Christer..please if you do not hear from me...know that something is wrong. I would miss you. I cannot imagine not sitting on your porch in Sweden..having a virtual cup of tea...it's my imaginary globe travel time to a foreign country I will never see any other way!
I still smile when I think you were beginning to think I would actually show up on your front porch!! :):) NO worry there!

I am wondering if you are having trouble with the old way to download or the new...as once Gail sent me the instructions...I was delighted with how much more simple it is than the old way.

I would never go back to the old blogger system. What an improvement.
I have no idea how things are run in Sweden..but have heard others complain of the "new" way.

I hope your new home is pleasing and that things go smoothly with you.
Have a nice day, Christer!

p.s. I will try to switch over... :) here goes nothing! Ok..here I go. Wish me luck..and thanks for commenting on the sewing kit. But of course you wouldn't care about a thing like that!!! LOL s'ok!
It's nice that no matter how far from things that interest you my posts are...you are always kind enough to comment! :) Thanks!!

Hi Christer,
I suppose it is appropriate that the sunflower should be down on your last day here. There are lovely sunny pictures for it though so that is good.
Great thing about Safari is that once I went to your new site it showed up on my Top Spots right away and I was able to pin it there so I can get to you with no trouble.
Now to see if I can post this because the visual verification is showing me a question mark instead of a funky word.

Hi Christer, i will change the bookmark to follow you on WordPress. Hope all goes well and perhaps I may start a personal blog there, one day - without Grenville :-) Sad to see the end of the sunflower :-( Stay warm!

oldblackcatboo said...

I will figure it out...
It might take me a couple of try's but I will do it!
Your blog is part of my daily ritual!

splendid said...

so happy to hear you are happy in your move Christer! We will all adjust if you do:)

Hi Joyce!
I know that you can change the address to my new blog on the side bar. It´s rather easy to change as i remember it.

I think I can bring all followers with me, I was looking around in my new home and saw that I could import things from blogger. I´ll surly try to do so if possible!

Have a great day now!

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Hi Robin!
If You have a side bar with all blogs You follow You then easily can change the address to my new blog. I did so when I had that side bar once.

I think I´ve gotten addicted to writing a blog, so I will continue :-)

Have a great day now!

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Hi Mona!
As I remember You just changed to my new address on the side bar. It wasn´t that complicated to be honest. Just copy my new address and paste it on the following bar.

But Every time I comment on Your there will be a link to my blog, just click on my name then :-)

But You are always welcome, You know that :-)

The big problem is that the photos don´t down load at all or gets half way and nothing more happens. So I know how it should work, but it refuses to work :-)

I know You will manage to switch:-)
I might not be interested in sewing, but the history behind that kit must be interesting! I bet that if it could tell You its history it would be really interesting!

Have a great day now!

Hi Beatrice!
Thank You :-)
I have to admit that it will takje some time until I have figured out how it works on Word Press :-) :-) I´m trying to figure out how to move all my followers to the new place if that works and how to put a new translation bar in it :-) :-)

Yes it fel´t really sad to see it, but there´s another one :-)

Have a great day now!

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Hi Cindi!
I´m glad that You like my efforts to make a nice blog :-)
Have a great day now!

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Hi Splendid!
Thank You :-)
Yes I´m looking forward to work with the new place, but it will take time until I understand things there :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day now!

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Hi Caryn!
It sort of fits to end with a fallen sunflower :-) But I will start with another sunflower photo in my new place :-) But I think that will be the last one for this year.

I have noticed that since I started to use Safari myself :-) I like that browser more and more every day :-)

Have a great day now!

Nämen Christer! Nu hänger jag inte med! Varför måste du flytta? Det låter i mina öron så jobbigt att du måste flytta "igen" - igen därför att så länge som jag har "känt dig" - dvs från Tråvadtiden så har jag bott på ett och samma ställe...;))... medan du flyttar den tredje eller fjärde gången! Vad säger de fyrbenta familjemedlemmarna?!/Anja

The cottage by the Cranelake said...

Tjänare Anja!
Det är ofta riktigt svårt att ladda ned bilder här numera och skall vi vara ärliga så är det inte mycket med min blogg utan bilder. Vi är rätt många som fått problem sedan de ändrade på blogger.

Nja, så många gånger har jag ju inte flyttat :-) :-) Jag började ju på Trädgårdsbloggar (om vi bortser från den bloggen jag hade när jag startade handelsträdgården).

Sedan startade jag denna på engelska och körde den parralellt med den svenska. Så fick ju trädgårdsbloggar problem och lades ned, så jag fortsatte med denna och endast på engelska, det tar sådan tid att översätta texten. Jag håller på i minst en timme som det är ändå.

Nu har jag stora problem här, så nu flyttar jag :-) :-)

De fyrbenta gillade de stora bilderna på min nya blogg, så de applåderar flytten :-)

Ha det gott och välkommen till mitt nya ställe!

Wenche said...

Vad är som har hänt här!?Jag behöver en liten dos av dina vandringar och betraktelser.Hoppas du snart återvänder.

Tjänare Wenche!
Ser att det var ett tag sedan du kommenterade här, men in alla fall. Klicka bara på länken i bloggen (den med blå text) så kommer du till mitt nya ställe :-)
Välkommen :-)
