Leaves in water

Hallo again

gardensmall flowers birgitte tarding

I am still here, but the question is if I am the only one left at this blog?
I haven´t been blogging for a while, but it was just a matter of finding new energy and inspiration.

I need a new camera as the old one is completely worn out. For some time I have been using my iPhone, which is OK for many occations, but not really inspiring in the long run.

Despite my silence, I have have had you, -my blogfriends-, in my mind all the time, and missed the regular news and inspiring pictures you are posting. I guess we just need a little (blogging) rest now and then, and hope that my is over now.
June is the start of summer in Denmark. I hope it is ready to wake up, as well.

The low light fight

autumn

The low light fight has begun.

It definitely is autumn, low tempetature, falling leaves and decreasing daylight, all signs that can´t be misunderstood. On the other hand, September was almost warmer than summer, and the warmest September Denmark have ever had. (The average of the highest daytime temperatures have never been higher).Buttom line is, that the weather is unpredictable and cant be trusted anymore as  calender.
Luckily there is another reliable sign which can be used instead – perhaps a bit too eager but never mind -, that is the Christmas candy sale. I saw the first one today, and I know for sure now, that there is a long time to Christmas, and there will be many low light days to fight, before the turning point at December 22. (Sun rise 8:38am  sunset 3:39pm)
Let the fight begin.

Summer

It is summer, the weather has been very good for several weeks. Plants and grass are probably happy that the heat  has been taken over by rain and gray clouds, lasting one week from now or more. Time to go inside and look for all the sweaters and warm clothes, which have been stored somewhere in a moment of “weatherly” optimism.

Spring

Sunny days at spring is not a given thing, but we’ve been lucky, and I have been able to watch and enjoy all the new arrivals from a good spot, while sitting on an old garden bench. I was not the only one who had a good time at the bench, the woodpecker had too.

Spring cleaning

It is spring, and all the dried things from last fall, which is to be found here and there in boxes, bowls, closets, and pockets, are on their way to a drawer, or some place similar. Perhaps they silently disappear to join the ecosystem.

Winter aconite

Winter aconite, once again.

It appears that this flower has received a medal, the ” Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit”. I´m proud to host a big bunch of them. I wonder how they reacted when they found out about it. I will not wonder about what they did with the medal. Absolutely not. Or if it was big or small. Small one seems more likely.

Snow

Frost

Despite all the small yellow flowers, nights are still cold with frost, and sometimes the wheelbarrow – which is full of withered things from the garden – delivers the most interesting little piece of art.
