The air is filled with cranes and geese.
We´ve had an unusual warm night, 11C (52F) and the temperature is much the same now. Two days ago they said we were going to have sun today and that a front with rain would come yesterday evening and be gone by now. So I´m not especially surprised that the rain starts now and that the sunshine will come tomorrow instead 🙂 🙂 🙂
We´ve just been outside in the garden, my dogs sniffing around and I scooping up what they have left behind and looking at cranes that passed in the sky on their way to the lake. I was thinking that we should take a walk before the rain came and we had just gone inside to fetch the leashes when it started. It drizzles at the moment but I know it´s pouring down south in Gothenburg. I´ve realized that Nova is really fuzzy when it comes to walk in mud, she almost refused to go in through the gate when we came home earlier this morning. It is a bit muddy in front of the gate because the water can´t get anywhere since the ground still is frozen.
I´ve looked at the trees and bushes I still have in pots in the garden (they should have been planted already last summer, but I just couldn´t find the right spot for them) and I´m glad to say that my two Red Mulberry trees still are alive 🙂 and so it seems that the Cherry Prinsepia´s are too. If I understand things right it seems I need two red mulberry trees to be certain to get some berries from them, but the problem is that they will grow up to 21 meters high (much the same in yards). Well that will take some time but then I really want an oak in my garden too (one of the acorns of the what I think is the northern red oak now has started to grow).
Even though I´m pretty sure I will be long gone before those trees are that big I really don´t have the space in my little garden 🙂 🙂 🙂 But I think I´ll leave that for the coming generation to solve 🙂 🙂 🙂 By the way, does anyone know how red mulberries tastes? I´ve read that they taste anything from water to delicious 🙂 🙂
I think we better take that walk now before the rain might be pouring down here. There´s a fire in the stove even if I don´t need it, the jackdaws are very active now to find a good chimney to build a nest in 🙂 🙂 Have a great day now!
