    Serpentinnia: once again, amazing photographs of a place I so dearly would like to visit myself. God, Bath... just, God. I know it's a Victorian re-imagining of the ruins, but they did an amazing restoration.

    What is the nature of the stones on Stone Avenue?

    Anything to say about the experience of Stonehenge?

    How wonderful; I wish you many many years of enjoyment with the property, and may your roses be full of cute fat bumblebees. I had not heard of white strawberries before this moment.

    With that kind of land, I would plant a small orchard and vineyard. They don't require much maintenance once they are established. But that's just me and my inner peasant speaking.

    Oh, and look at this, another batch of images, now with parental approval:

    Student graduation, last summer:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Me as a recently graduated student together with my two brothers, my aunt (on dad's side) and my two cousins. I was wondering what my sign would be when I saw this one over the crowd, and you have no idea how happy it made me. I heard some people mumbling about it being weird, but I didn't care:

    Me and mum. The envelope holds my (high school) grades. They were good:


    Gotland, last summer:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Strong winds won't stop me and my brothers from enjoying the ride. Quite the contrary, actually:

    It bears a striking resemblence to Hello Kitty/Bunny, doesn't it? I secretly believe it to be their bastard offspring, standing dormant, waiting to be awakened so that it can unleash its powers on the world:

    Yeah, I leave it up to you to come up with something (in)appropriate to say about this one:


    Summer house, last summer:
    Spoiler
    Show
    My cousins just can't get enough of teasing eachother. I can't get enough of hugging them:

    The perfect solution to siblings' quarrel:

    We have a beach too, reachable by boat:


    Me, my brothers, younger cousin and good old granny (on my father's side, I'll never get used to not making a distinction):


    Summer house, last Christmas:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Me and little brother, ready to battle Dagmar and her forces:


    Summer house, this spring:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Me carrying around older cousin:


    Summer house, this summer:
    Spoiler
    Show
    This is how every dinner goes when my cousins are around. Nothing strange in this picture, really:
    Okay, this has to be fattening.

    Your whole family seems lovely, young to old.

    ...aww, I should have taken pictures of the 30 or so budgies at my friend's house, they made me think of you. =3
    30?! That is amazing! Could you play with them? I would love to have that many budgies on me at once.

    You are a sweetheart. May I buy you dinner? No funny stuff, I swear

    Yes, it is a lot of work, as I said, but she'll hopefully hold another half of a century or so. Right now, most of the farm is owned by my grandmother, while my childless great aunt holds the rest. When they die, it'll probably be split between dad and my aunt, which should work just fine. The problem is my generation. There're five of us and one farm, and if we're all going to make families, then there might start to be conflicts. Somewhere along the line, there'll be a breakpoint, I just hope it won't strike hard...

    It's a bit too far north for a vineyard (pretty much the entirety of Sweden is), although an apple orchard could probably work if you pick a durable kind. We do have cherry trees (okay, more like glorified bushes), although they only give a single berry a year. We do have currant (how could I forget them? They're practically half the garden) and gooseberry bushes, however, which both are well suited for the climate. I even found some wild currant bushes tangles growing in the swampy area to the west below the fields which I've made into a personal project to try to trim and grow into something resembling proper bushes. It's a bit tricky, because the area is completely flooded whenever the water level is high, like it was this summer.
    I'm doing a Tour de Friends! Please drop by and tell me if you're interested in having me drop by for a visit this summer!

    Clouddreamer Teddy by me, high above the world, far beyond its matters...

    Why am I so happy?
    Why does Thufir look so smug? Is it the hat?
    And why are the other two in middle there so anxious?

    What TV shows does he like?
    What books does he read?
    What's his opinion on cartoons?

    1. Because you are adorbz :3
    2. Thufir is ALWAYS smug. Fact. I even commented about it on a couple of other photos I took of him.
    3. Because they foresaw the awkwardness which was yet to come.

    From the caption I'd have to guess that it was your mother despite her not looking old enough to be your mother when I first saw the photo before reading the caption. Generally raising a child to adulthood takes a fair bit out of a woman, even women who were young when they gave birth. The more troublesome a child is the more there's stress about, and stress does an some effect upon aging.

    She was two weeks from her 30th birthday when I was born. She's not that young. I'm just longer than her.

The problem is my generation. There're five of us and one farm, and if we're all going to make families, then there might start to be conflicts. Somewhere along the line, there'll be a breakpoint, I just hope it won't strike hard...
    Oh dear. I hope the property does not go the way of The Cherry Orchard or some decayed Strindbergian estate. I suppose it would be too much to ask to institute a self-interested medieval policy of firstborn male inheritance ad perpetuam.

    It's a bit too far north for a vineyard (pretty much the entirety of Sweden is), although an apple orchard could probably work if you pick a durable kind. We do have cherry trees (okay, more like glorified bushes), although they only give a single berry a year. We do have currant (how could I forget them? They're practically half the garden) and gooseberry bushes, however, which both are well suited for the climate. I even found some wild currant bushes tangles growing in the swampy area to the west below the fields which I've made into a personal project to try to trim and grow into something resembling proper bushes. It's a bit tricky, because the area is completely flooded whenever the water level is high, like it was this summer.
    Cherries and currants and gooseberries! Yet more delightful. Are they big sweet cherries or something like Nanking cherries? I wonder how you might encourage them to fruit more...

    & You might be surprised about grapes -- for curiosity's sake, I had a look at the hardiness zones of Europe. Only a tiny area of Sweden gets down to Hardiness Zone 3, which is what my city falls under, and I grow grapes in my backyard. They aren't plump table grapes, rather smaller slightly sour grapes suitable for wine-making or preserves. On the other hand, think of what you could do in Zones 5, 6, or 7!

    I wonder if you could build some kind of French ditch into lower ground to keep your currant patch dry

    They lined a pathway between Avebury (the ditch and stones at the end there) with a now-disappeared stone circle (the one where Thufir was being all primeval).
    It was substantially more impressive and interesting than I was expecting it to be - in fact, seeing it at all was really just an afterthought. And they're so gorram OLD.
    About Stone Avenue -- I mean are the stones megaliths, placed upright on purpose, or did they form somehow standing out like that naturally?

    Yeah, that would be me. Sadly, I don't think granny is going to allow that. Nor Swedish inheritence rules, for that matter, but don't take my word on that. I'll just have to go the way of the capitalist (bleh): get rich and buy it all. A flawless plan, isn't it!?

    The small, hard and green kind. I've never in my life seen a ripe cherry on those trees.

    Let me guess, a leeward spot by the south wall? It may work with terraces, but since the field lies on a west-slope, that's not quite feasible...

    I think you misunderstood me, the reason to why it's flooded is because the surface level of the lake rises above the plants. I'd have to drain the entire lake. Also, the farm lies on a ness ("näs" in Swedish. The name of the farm is "Näset", which literally translates to "The Ness"), finding lower ground can be a bit tricky.

    Well I wish you the best of fortune sorting that situation out in the future. It would be a dreadful thing for such a wonderful blessing to cause strife in the family.

    Nay sir: my backyard faces west, and my city is in the dead centre of the flatness of the Prairies in a never-ending orgy of the winds. Now my yard is small and befenced, and surrounded by other houses, so it's not quite as rugged as were it out in the country. All the same -- the grapes I grow are called Severnji, and they are incredibly hardy [to zone 3]. If they are available in Europe I am sure you could grow them there.

    Okay, I'll stop trying to vicariously work on your land now.

    I see. It must be quite a valuable piece of land. But I do not know well this word ness -- in what sense do you mean?
