It is raining today
too. 10 degreez Celsius and rain. We had nice Summer weather at
Friday, and at Sunday. The rest of the days, it has been raining.
But if I decide to do something in our garden, I go out to do
this, in spite of the weather. i love to work in our garden, and
I enjoy to get the garden as I am dreaming about.
I have created a
photos of Joakim, taken by a photographer,
when Joakim was confirmated at May 2nd.
I also created a page with
photos of the church service
at April 28th. And a page with
photos from Joakim's confirmation day.
Now it's a long
time since I have written in my blog. Again. It's Summertime,
and I spend a lot of time in our garden. But I will try to tell
you a bit of what I have done since my last update.
Unfortunately it is raining today.
We have had some
days with no rain, but the warm summer heat has not come to us
yet, this Summer.
Thuesday June 29th,
we put down some Lilac bushes down at our lawn. These bushed are
supposed to, in some years, grow to become a nice hedge against
the main road.
The day after, I
started to paint our second terrace. (The terrace by our
entrance, I painted mid June.) Unfortunately, I went out of
paint, and had to stop, without finishing.
Some days later,
Joakim, my 14 years old son, helped me finishing paint the
In addition to
this Joakim also helped me to redecorate an old bench.
I had put up and
ad, and asked if someone had a bench to sell. A lady called me
and said that if we came and picked up their bench, so that they
did not have to deliver it to us, we could have it for free.
This is what it looked like:
The bench was full
of rust, and in bad shape, but I wanted to paint it, and get rid
of the rust.
Joakim helped me
to fix the bench. He used 1 1/2 hours doing this, and the
bench turned our very nice!
I went down in our
garden and dug up some flowers, (Hosta) and grass. The grass
lookes a bit weak and infirm, but it grows very fast, and will
spread out in the pot soon.
The last weekend Charles
and I went to a motorcycle meeting to a place called Dorotea in
Sweeden, together with some other members of our motorcycle club.
We had a very nice trip. The meeting was very nice and so was
Here you can see
me, at a nice place in Sweeden, where we had a rest. This
waterfall is called "Trappstegsforsen", which means
the staircase waterfall.
This weekend, from
9th til 11th of July, it is our motorcycle club which is
arranging a motorcycle meeting. I am going to help out, by
serving breakfast, and selling dinner, Coca Cola and bear to the
participants on the motorcycle meeting. I was hoping to spend
some time in our garden this weekend too. It's a pity the
weather is so bad today, but I hope that Sunday will be better.
This is a Veronica
in our garden yesterday, July 9th.
