The wind blows hard like always but today I don’t mind especially much, we’re having summer temperature today and that means 21C (69,8F). Summer never get especially hot up here in the north but we do usually get a week when it rises to 28C (82,4F) but mostly its cool and it rains a lot too.

I had to shower Sune after our evening walk yesterday. He was jumping over a creek we followed and suddenly he fell from the creek bank (does it sound wrong saying creek bank?) and fell in to the muddy water. I could see that he thought it was hilarious so he kept on jumping faster and faster over the creek with the result of many falls in to the really muddy water. It was just as fun as the first time and after a while I had to leash him 🙂 🙂 🙂

He loves to play with Nova all day but every now and agin he goes out for himself and starts playing with what ever he can find. He tosses it up in the air and then he tries to catch it again 🙂 This can go on for hours unless one of the other dogs also wants to play with that particular thing they never even knew existed before Sune had it 🙂 🙂 🙂

It’s time to water the Thuja’s I planted and then I must check all the pots I sowed during the winter, things starts to happen in them now 🙂 Some pots have been standing there for two or three years and finally I can see some seedlings showing up in those too. A Korean Maple for instance, I sowed those seeds two years ago 🙂 Patience is a must if one wants to sow seeds for trees and perennials sometimes 🙂


This calf is only a few hours old, it still had some problems keeping its balance :-) But it seems to love running, well at least it tied.

Mama cow wasn't happy to see us at all and kept her eyes on us :-)

  1. hi christer! that mother cow sure is giving you the stink eye! what a cute baby! does sune like getting baths? we finally got a nice rain and it soaked everything really well so i won’t have to water for a while. nothing like a good rain for the gardens to perk up! joyce

    • Hi Joyce!
      Yeah, she really didn’t like us passing by 🙂 🙂

      He likes to take a bath in the creeks and has fallen in the pond once and he seems to like it a lot 🙂 Very different from the other three 🙂

      Nothing really happened here until the rain started to fall, then everything became green here.

      Have a great day!

  2. Hi Christer,
    Sweet baby cow or bull. 🙂 I love how they try to run on their wobbly feet. New foals are like that, too. All legs and none of the co-ordinating with the others. 🙂
    Sune is still a puppy and still finding fun things to do. Jumping the creek and falling off the bank is fun and well worth the bath that must follow. 🙂
    Rocky has discovered his inner terrier and now spends most of his outside time in the yard trying to get at the woodchuck. I’m fairly sure he has no idea what he’s supposed to do with the woodchuck if he gets it. He tries.
    It’s sunny, windy and warm here today. I’m enjoying this late spring weather.
    Enjoy the rest of your day. 🙂

    • Hi Caryn!

      I pass by a stud farm every day and almost every morning during summer there are new born foals in a pasture just beside the road I’m driving. I’m not a big fan of horses but I do love seeing those foals 🙂

      He thought it was so fun that he pushed the limits to what he could manage and he was so happy every time 🙂 I once had a dog that loved taking a bath as soon as she got the chance, buty she prefered salt water. but isn’t a woodchuck rather big 🙂 I do hope it doesn’t bite if it get the chance.I’ve always wondered what Nova would do if she actually caught a hare, I doubt she would kill it since they are pretty big 🙂 🙂 🙂 A vole is a totally different thing though, those she eats if she get the chance 🙂 🙂 🙂

      Have a great day!

  3. Yes, a woodchuck is rather big and it would bite very hard. Even the babies can be mean. My friend had a stupid cat. We were in the kitchen watching him try to stalk a young woodchuck. He was crouched on a raised garden bed and his tail was dangling down. Unbeknownst to him, the littermates of the target woodchuck had circled around behind him and one of them ran up and bit his tail. We laughed.
    My old Jack Russell Tegan would have no trouble with the woodchuck because she killed everything she could get. It would be a nasty fight to watch, though. So far Rocky has just lunged at the hole when the woodchuck tried to stick his nose out. I think Rocky would be a bit like my friend’s stupid cat. 🙂

    You might be interested to know that National Geographic Your Shot has gone to Beta with a “new look”. It’s very pretty. The photos are almost full screen size. It’s still clunky to navigate. They’ll be moving content from the old site over so you’ll have to register on the new Beta site to get to it.

    • Big and mean but still rather cute 🙂

      Poor cat 🙂 🙂 🙂

      I guess terriers and dachshunds would manage to take a woodchuck. Nova might but none of the others, they too would end up like that cat 🙂 🙂 🙂

      I saw yesterday that I had gotten a mail about Your Shot on NG, must check it out later tonight.
