The sun shines through the clouds.
We’ve had a really cold night and rather cold morning, the wind is still rather weak and the sun shines through the clouds to make it look a bit nicer than it is. Still it could be worse, the predictions says strong winds all day but so far it’s rather calm. Lets hope they have that prediction wrong too because we shouldn’t be able to see the sun at all right now 🙂
The birds don’t seem to care about any change in the weather though, they are still preparing for all the duties they’ll have the coming five to six months. Lots of singing and lots of gathering of nest-building materials. I’ll fill the feeders in a few minutes, I guess they’ll need any extra free energy to cope with the cold winds and nights.
Do You remember the dog Artur? The dog who got one meatball from a Swedish multi sport team and then decided to follow them. The members of te team fell in love with the seven-year old dog and one of them decided to bring him home to Sweden. That’s neither easy nor cheap to do when it is planned but they got lucky and the dog arrived to Sweden four months ago and placed in quarantine. Artur is now out of quarantine after four months and the first thing he and the one bringing him here did was to take a long run 🙂 From now on he’ll be a normal family dog but he will follow the team on competitions that isn’t too far away from home 🙂
The tomato seeds I sowed are now germinating and so are the seeds from the hardy Pelargonium (usually called geraniums in English) I had placed outdoors. They had already started outside and I thought it best to bring them inside since I didn’t know just how cold it would be and if that would kill those small seedlings. So it does feel very much like spring even though winter has made a short return to us.
Time for some tea and perhaps a sandwich or two.
Have a great day!
