Blue Tit at my pond.
I’m not sure if the winds we’re having is strong enough to call storm winds but they sure are close🙂 My car was tossed around on the road and things were flying around everywhere. It’s kind of nice though, I like a good storm especially when it’s fairly warm outside. Ravens love storms, I saw several playing around up in the sky having loads of fun. All other birds however seems to be hiding somewhere.
I have a mix of photographs taken both today and yesterday in todays post.
It has rained big parts of the day and all kinds of smells were released in to the air. Every now and again I got snippets of flashbacks, tiny parts of something that I once did when a similar smell were around. Suddenly I could see myself down by the harbor, sitting on a wooden bridge fishing. I did that a lot when I was a kid but never got anything special to bring home. perhaps just as good, the water quality wasn’t especially good back then. Now days it’s safe to drink the water from the river going through the city of Gothenburg.
One time I saw our garden at the summer house we had when I was a kid. Nothing grew up there on the top of the mountain, not even dandelions liked it🙂 It was mostly grass, moss, blueberry plants and willows that grew there. I loved that place and started going there myself over weekend from when I was around 13 years old. Back then no one worried about weirdos doing anything to children. I know they were out there but no one really thought they existed🙂
I also remembered the cottage I leased when I was older, it was called the little cottage and had one room and a kitchen. I did have electricity but used the fire heated stove all year long. The outdoor toilet was placed around 20 meters (much the same in yards) away and if I had the door open when being there I could see the road and whom ever would walk/drive on it🙂 There were lots of wipers (our only poisonous snake, like a wasp in its poison) on that property and since I had a small cat (Mafalda was her name) that loved hunting them I had to move them from the area closest to the cottage. Mafalda never got any bigger than a ten week old kitten so I was always worried that she wouldn’t be able to take a snake bite.
Suddenly they were just there, the spring flowers. This is a Hepatica.
I have a fire burning in the stove just to keep any dampness out from my little home. Sune and Nova is playing so wildly that all other animals tries to stay away from them🙂 It’s time to make something to eat and I think I have enough with tea to make a cup or two, if not It’ll be cocoa instead.
But it flowers indoors as well, this is an Angel pelargonia (or geranium as most english speaking calls them).
The only thing written on the flower pot was “Cattleya hybrid”. I’m pretty sure there’s lots of Laelia orchid in it as well. Perhaps it really is a Laelocattleya hybrid.
Have a great day!
