There’s almost no wind, 20C (68F) and cloudy. The air is heavy with the smells from the Lilacs and Rowan trees, so much that it is almost disgusting and gives me headache. I have an around 35 meters (much the same in yards) long lilac hedge and even though it does look beautiful I really don’t like it 🙂
The forest is filled with rowan trees and some lilacs too so it it impossible to get away from the smells. One rowan tree or one lilac smells rather nice though and I do like the rowan berries so I won’t complain too much :-)I’ve planted rowans in my garden as well so I really can’t complain about it to be honest 🙂
We have a tradition here in Sweden (well I guess Scandinavia to be honest) to plant a tree which we call vårdträd (care tree) Back in the days that tree was supposed to be a home for the spirits of the home, like old deceased ( not diseased as I wrote first 🙂 🙂 ) relatives or perhaps the gnomes. That tree was and still is sacred and must b´never be harmed in any way. Rowan trees in our gardens are quite often care trees and that’s the case here too. My care tree grows in the south-east corner of my garden, a place I’m pretty sure never will be used to anything else anyway.
It is time to make myself something to eat. Yesterday I almost ran out of bread so I baked one. I didn’t have any rye flour at all so it is only wheat. What a difference it is when it comes to the rising of the bread 🙂 Even the smallest dough becomes gigantic when it only is wheat flour in it, my bread grew out of the pan when it was done 🙂
