Damselflies.

Quite nice evening.

We’re having a warm afternoon, sunless and windless  and it feels like we were going to get thunder any time soon but I doubt that. The flies behave that crazy as they always do before a good thunderstorm though. It’s odd, almost all of Europe has lots of thunder right now, even our neighboring countries but not a single place here in Sweden 🙂

The rain didn’t just wake up lots of flies it also made the grass start to grow. We didn’t get that much rain here though but it was enough for those two things I’m afraid. Still, mostly non biting but rather irritating flies so far and not so many that I feel the need to wear my mosquito hat even if a few of them tried to see what my ear looks like inside.

I have the day off tomorrow but won’t be sleeping especially late in the morning anyway. First I’ll go to the hospital in Lidköping to get my new insoles and when I’ve done that I’ll walk around some in the city and I’ll bring two old cameras so I can take photographs both in the city and the marina. Lidköping is placed by the biggest lake in Sweden, Vänern (it is by the way the third biggest lake in Europe but still Tiny compared to the big lakes on the American continent).

 

I have no idea what kind of rose this is, I've most likely gotten it on a plant swapping day.

These three roses grows on the same bush, it is the Cinnamon rose, Rosa majalis.

I also have an appointment with my optician and that’s at 12 so I can’t stay too long in Lidköping because my optician is in Falköping. I have to pass my village on the way there and that’s always a bit annoying since I usually want to drive home when I do that 🙂 If I still have film in my cameras I’ll take a few photos there too. I think I’ll go to the Tea and Coffee shop in Falköping as well, it’s on the same street as my optician. I’ll not only buy tea they also sell the best ice cream there is, a bit expensive perhaps but well worth it.

 

I have a few wild roses growing in my garden. This is Rosa rugosa.

My next biggest one is a Rosa dumalis, the common Dog rose.

Rosa glauca. The flowers are best enjoyed if looking closely at them.

No more things to do after that the entire weekend, well the laundry and lawn mowing but that’s a given if the grass grows and I want clean clothes 🙂 It is time to make something to eat and I’ll have some tea too, I am after all not going to work tomorrow so I can stay up a bit late if the tea works that way 🙂

 

I have no idea what this rose is called either but it flowers for a long time.

Big betony (Stachys macrantha). If You have a place where the sun doesn't reach and where it is either dry or wet this is the flower for You. It grows everywhere and flowers for quite some time.

Have a great day!
