The Easter bunny will freeze to death today.
It was quite nice weather when Nova woke me up around 5:30 this morning and it stayed that way until we were going out for our morning walk. As soon as we stepped outside the snow began to fall and the wind got stronger. So I decided single-handed that the walk should be a short one 🙂 but the dogs didn’t seem to mind that much anyway 🙂
Then the rain came and the wind slowed down some, it actually got quite nice. So we went out for another walk in a spring drizzle and the wind was sort of lukewarm, at least until we had walked some distance out into the forest. Then everything changed quickly. The wind got strong and nasty cold and the snow started to fall once again, this time the temperature dropped beneath 0C (32F) so I guess this will stay for some time.
The 26 500 cranes by the lake ( new record) will survive though, they get food every day and those nesting furthest north are used to snow fall in the middle of summer anyway. But I think that if the Easter bunny would come here it would freeze to death 🙂 Luckily for him he isn’t that well known here so I doubt he will come 🙂 I guess it is gigantic easter hen that lays our candy filled easter eggs 🙂
I’ve sown the seeds I have had in my fridge for a couple of months now, they have been there in moist paper towels wrapped in plastic. But now they are in pots with soil and placed outdoors. This is actually perfect weather for them, many seeds needs lots of changing in temperature the last month or so to be able to germinate. They contain chemicals that stops them from germinating until that happens. So with a bit of luck I’ll have a couple of magnolias and American Persimmons this summer. I’ve tried magnolias here before but the climate is just to tough for most of them but now I’ve sown the two hardiest of them all. Magnolia kobus and Magnolia acuminata.
I would like to make a pie or cobbler today but I don’t have any fruits. I’m wondering if I can use jam in a cobbler? That I have plenty off 🙂 I think it would work if I skip any sugar in the dough since there is plenty in the jam. I have a jar of raspberry and peach jam in the fridge, I have it on my porridge every morning. I think I’ll try anyway 🙂 🙂 🙂 The fire will be burning in the stove all day and lots of pots with tea will be made 🙂
Have a great day!
