TODAY´S FLOWER

Julros/Christmas Rose
Helleborus





I´M MAD ABOUT HELLEBORUS!

Perhaps because it´s an early bird.
It´s one of the easier and most rewarding garden plants to grow.
I only remove old, tattered foliage in early spring.

They start blooming i March in my garden and very often
they continue during summer and autumn.

...

Jag är nog galen i julrosor!

De har allt jag önskar av en blomma.
De är ljuvligt vackra och finns i
många skepnader och färgställningar.
De är lättskötta - jag klipper bara bort vissna blad om våren.
De frösår sig och kräver ingenting av mig.

Kan man önskar mer?

COVERED WINDOW

Rosenvial, perenn "luktärt"
/Broad-leaved Everlasting Sweet Pea
Lathyrus latifolius



Sweet Peas are covering my eastern window
in the orangerie to welcome in the dawn.
This is a perennial cousin to the annual sweet pea.
This is a very much neglected and so worthwhile garden plant
with greater hybrid vigour than any of the present annual sweet peas.

...

Rosenvial förekommer förvildad här i Skåne,
men kommer ursprungligen från centrala och
södra Europa och Nordafrika.
Jag älskar att använda dem som snittblommor.
I trädgården blommar de i juli-augusti.

SKY DRAMA


Österlen, South of Sweden


The skies darkens
and the storm is coming
but I have no hurry.
I love the drama in the sky.

SMALL THINGS

Helleborus Niger


MY WORLD

...is shrinking everyday now,
and my eyes are focused on the smallest things.
I see Helleborus peeking out of the ground -
it is the light of the raising sun.
I love crawling in the mud
in order to capture old friends with my lens.

Raise dear life...springtime is here!

TODAY´S FLOWER

Camellia


When the sky is cold and gray
and when my roses are asleep,
the camellia adds a touch of brightness
in shades of pink and reds to my garden
in the heart of early spring.

MY MORNING VIEW

Early morning view from my garden


I love photographing early in the morning,
watching as a new day unfolds,
listening to the morning chorus.

I´m lucky living in a nature reserve
known by birdwatchers from all Europe.


...

Min bästa tid är nu...innan nya dagen gryr.

WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE

My flooding Valley

The water is like witch´s oils,
burnt green, blue and white.

...

Aftonsolens sken skapar en sagovärld.
Ljudet av porlande vatten, som har bråttom
ackompanjeras av fåglarnas körsång.
Det doftar Vår!
