Runaways.

Today it wasn’t the sheeps.

The morningΒ is a bit crappy to be honest, cool but not chilly enough to keep the flies calm but I have to admit that most of the biting ones are gone now. It also rains every now and again but we were lucky to be rain free when we took our walk earlier this morning.

 

I didn't take especially many photos today, too dark and gloomy because of the clouds.

This morning it wasn't any sheep that was on the run, it was a bull calf :-)

I got my dvd’s yesterday πŸ™‚ I was actually worried that someone was stealing my mail for a while, I didn’t get any and usually that’s something I like, no mail no bills πŸ™‚ But since I was waiting for the dvd’s and never seemed to get the bill for the developing of those film rolls I had in the Minolta cameras I did start to wonder. I can happily say no one is stealing my mail but we do have summer temp mailmen πŸ™‚ They really don’t have an easy job out here at the outskirts of the world πŸ™‚

 

It isn't the first time that happens :-) Normally there are more than just one though.

I think he’s quite beautiful.

He was a bit stressed because the dogs and I stood at the place it normally gets in to the pasture again.

It calmed down a lot though as soon as we had passed and it could go back tothe right spot again :-)

They need to find their way in a huge labyrinth of roads, some leading nowhere some leading to places that isn’t marked on any map and the gps’s can’t find πŸ™‚ Lots of mailboxes don’t have any markings or names on them. I think they must have that but tell that to someone who have lived all his life out here and never can understand how difficult it is to find any place here unless one has grown up with all those tiny roads and paths πŸ™‚ I really don’t trust what a gps tells me because it isn’t that long ago they told me I lived several miles away from where I actually live πŸ™‚ That’s because the addresses are slightly illogical.

 

The rest of the photos You'll see today are flowers in my garden flowering right now. This is a Hollyhock. This is if  I remember right an ALCEA froloviana, growing in Siberis. It is said to have pale sulphur yellow flowers but it is extremely pale to be honest :-)

For instance, my cottage and the cottage at the end of my road have the same address except for the numbers, the beekeeper has number one and I number three. Our neighbor in between however have a totally different address. That cottage has a much older address which they used over 25 years ago πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ It was the same where I lived before moving here. For some reason my closest neighbors there had a totally different address than I had, I had the same address as they had on the other side of a huge field several hundred meters (much the same in yards) away. Once there was a road between those and the cottage I lived in and the road stopped there. But that road became a part of the huge field and they opened up a road to the closest neighbors but kept the old address πŸ™‚

 

The grafted rose died and this is what showed up instead. To be honest, I like this one much better :-)

Lysimachia punctata. A true weed if anything is :-) Grows well together with the Blue Globe thistle, which by the way also is very weedy but very beautiful :-)

It looks however as the poor summer temp mailman now finds his/ her way so I’ve gotten all the mail I’ve been expecting and it comes every day but very late. I guess the poor person will be just as fast as the ordinary mailman isΒ the day the ordinary one comes back from vacation πŸ™‚ I normally put letters I want to send in the mailbox if I don’t plan on going anywhere in my mailbox so the mailman takes it on the way back to the post office. I have four new rolls of film I want to develop but I’m not sure I dare doing that when we have temporary mailmen on the roads πŸ™‚

They say we’ll get sunshine today and perhaps even a temperature up to 20C (68F)! I can actually see the sun shining through the clouds right now so perhaps they are right? I’ll know better later after a pot of tea and some breakfast.
