The tasty rhubarb have started to grow. The one with the bitter stalks still sleep and will be removed to grow somewhere else.
So far the day seems to be a bit cooler than the three previous days have been. Cloudy and hazy but it’s still very nice outdoors. So I decided to try to take a short walk with my dogs even though my foot has had better days🙂 Well it doesn’t ache especially much unless Sune doesn’t step or jump on it or I hit something with it wich I seem to do every five minutes or so🙂 The big problem is that it doesn’t fit in any shoe.
The redberried elderberry bushes have big buds now.
Tulips on their way.
It would fit in my rubber boots but the way down is a bit too slim to reach the bottom of the boot. It’s no use in even trying my normal shoes or boots but it did almost get all the way in to my summer shoes, the ones without laces but some kind of elastic string instead. So off we went in a pace Hector must have loved since his joints have been arguing this winter and he has become a bit slow. They have been better lately though, spring temperatures does that to cranky old joints🙂
These are not the best of photos but shows Jackdaws looking for good places to nest at. I better tell my neighbor it is time to start a fire in ´his fireplace every morning now.
It worked fine as long as the road was smooth without any bigger pebbles on it or the road leaning towards one or the other way🙂 The morning was quite wonderful and since there was almost no traffic the only sounds that could be heard was singing birds, Black Grouse’s and the weak wind blowing in the trees. Bertil followed us this morning and stayed quiet for most of the time. I did see some fresh prints of hog cloves on the ground and when we reached the bog he did start to complain some. But I couldn’t see any and he calmed down as soon as we turned homewards again.
Best of friends. This was taken early in the morning and I had to brighten it up some.
Well being out on a walk with a squeezed foot is perhaps not the best thing to do but I was getting rather bored staying indoors all the time. After all I’m not sick, I’m just clumsy🙂 So from now on and for the rest of the day my foot will be placed high. At least both me and my dogs have done something other that just being still. It’s time for tea and then perhaps looking at some reruns on tv🙂
I suddenly saw that white spot out in the bog. I guessed it must be some kind of bird but it doesn’t fit anything I know live out there. A Black Grouse hen has no white and the rooster is black and white. Not even when I enlarged the original photo as much as I could, could I see what bird it is. This is just a small part of that photo and this is when that bird shows at its best.
Have a great day!
This looks like a Hazelnut bush. I didn’t know we had those here and that gives me hope that I can have some in my garden too🙂
