Todays photographs are a mix from yesterday and today.
I’ve always wanted an oak with those pointy lobed leafs I always see every Christmas when we watch Donald Duck and his friends celebrate Christmas. It’s Chip and Dale that picks acorns from such an oak. Our two species only have round lobed leafs and I like those pointy ones. They have oaks like that by the big hospital in Skövde and I’m going there the 30th this month for a MRI. But today I saw some on my way back to my workplace when I had been in the neighboring factory.
I had to look for a long while on the ground before I finally found a few acorns. I’ve noticed that this has been a bad year when it comes to acorns on our oaks too. I picked those I found and I’ll sow them tomorrow. I think it is Northern red oak but I know there are more oaks on the american continent that has leafs like that. I’ll pick a few if I find some when I go to the hospital too🙂
Now You might wonder way I want oaks in a rather small garden? It’s only 900 square meter (1076,4 square yard), They do get very big after all. But I’ll be dead and long gone before they reach those sizes🙂 I leave that problem to those who comes after me🙂 Black Walnuts do get rather big too I think and if mine will survive and become big it’s placed too close to the cottage but that will also be long after I’m gone, trees don’t grow that fast up here in the north.
Look at those eyes.
I’ve bought two pumpkins this week and I’ll buy one more tomorrow if they have any at the supermarket. I’m not sure if I’ll have them as they are or make lanterns of them. If I do lanterns can I then use any of what I carve out from their insides? I’ve never eaten pumpkins before and it would be fun to try some. I’ll take a photo of them when I have all three🙂
Once again it’s time to make a pot of tea and something to eat. I guess there’s nothing good on tv so I think I’ll find me something to read instead.
