What a lovely bed

Maybe not so comfortable but I can't imagine anything more romantic than sleeping in a campanula.

Some brave plants are blooming for the second, or even third, time while most of them look as they are ready for winter. But I'm not ready for winter — not yet!

Found a few interesting books at Gutenberg. I couldn't resist "Up the Baltic or Young America in Norway, Sweden and Denmark" by William T. Adams (Oliver Optic) from 1875. And just back from my island cottage I simply had to look at "The Island House" by F. M Holmes. "Little Black Sambo" is a book I remember from my childhood — but the Swedish version had other illustrations and I think it disappeared from the shelves a few years after I read it as it was considered racist.

By now the sun had won over the clouds so I decided to store up on vitamin D and mow part of the lawns.

Dinner the day after a birthday often means yummy desserts — this year we had a chocolate pie with pears.

The main dish was as always on birthdays in our house raclette — and no leftovers unfortunately.

  1. I think the link you give for Gutenberg is incorrect, Margaretha. It should be http://www.gutenberg.org/wiki/Main_Page

    My garden, too, seems to be confused. Some plants gave up waiting for summer to arrive and settled down for an early winter and now the unexpected sunshine has called them out to play.

  2. Thank you for pointing out the mistake Maureen! I had dropped the last g in Gutenberg!
