This is an old industrial area of my town. There were several smaller factories and I am not sure of what they produced here. It might have been bricks.

Porslinsblomma - Hoya Carnosa   NF Photo 120611

Det här är en av mina Hoyor. Som ni ser på förstoringarna har jag något på den. Jag trodde det var ulllöss som gjorde något sockrigt kristallartat på blomman. Men jag ser inga löss. Så var kommer det ifrån? De kommer mestadels på de nya skotten. Rätt fint i förstoring. Men....man vill ju veta vad det är och om det kan förstöra växten.

This is one of my hoyas. As you can see from the enlargements there is something on it. I thought it was some kind of wool lice that made those sugary crystal-like formations. But I don´t see any lice. So, where does it come from and how? It mostly comes on the new growth. Pretty nice as enlarged but I´d like to know what it is and if it can ruin my plant.

Galna veckan - Craziest week ever

NF Photo 120606 "christmas eve"

Believe it or not but I celebrated christmas last week. Why, you might ask? The young woman on the floor is my granddaughter who is studying in Hawaii. Being there she could not celebrate a "proper christmas" in december so she convinced us to do it now during summer brak. Even the weather seemed to think it was christmas. One day we had only +5degC. Almost snowing. We had some of the christmas foods. Last easter I bought Must, they usually have the same must for both christmas and easter. They only change the labels. It tastes a little like coke. Oh, then we had strawberries and new potatoes (for midsummer celebration) and herring. To finish of this event and make it perfect, my daughter found the JuliSkum in the shop. A brand new summer version of Santa. For christmas it is called JulSkum. (christmas foam) and now they changed the flavour and called it Juli skum. "Juli" for July. Santa is now officially on vacation. :) 

Two days later my grandson graduated. A big day for all of us.
This is his classmates, but where is he?  Well, take a look among the girls and you will find him. :)
