Hibernation

  
  
  
  
  
Hibernation is a state of inactivity and metabolic depression in animals, characterized by lower body temperature, slower breathing, and lower metabolic rate. Hibernating animals conserve energy, especially during winter when food is short, tapping energy reserves, body fat, at a slow rate. It is the animal’s slowed metabolic rate which leads to a reduction in body temperature and not the other way around.” Wikipedia 

 

 
The cold house…
 
 
 
 
 
What a glorious winter day, sparkling snow crystals and clear blue sky, it is heavenly beautiful but…freezing cold out there. I went out for a stroll in the garden and paid a visit to for the season a bit neglected greenhouse and it was very cold in there as well – 6 degrees C. (21 F) ‘indoors’. I wonder if any plants will survive this winter.
 
 
 
 
 I think I’m going to make a nice cup of chocolate and take a look in one of my gorgeous seed brochures.

Now, would you like to see this post in colour?

Positive Captures in a Negative Form

 

 

Ha… this was fun; I’ve been playing around with some black and white pictures from Tyra’s Garden, giving them a total make-over. Pushing a few buttons really changes the images completely. Positive captures in a negative form.

This is the old beacon out at ‘Klubben’, Ängskär. I don’t know if it is correct to call it a beacon even if it hasn’t got light, it is a navigation mark from the past.
Have a great week my monochrome friends!

Blackberry Monday – Monochrome weekly

It is not about BlackBerry the smartphone device, this is about September harvest – Now it is time to harvest the lovely Blackberries and this year they are wonderful, so big and juicy. I’m going to make a Blackberry pie – I think…

Wikipedia says this about the Blackberries:
 

The blackberry is an edible berry in the Rubus genus and the Rosaceae family. The fruit are botanically termed an aggregate fruit and they are produced on plants that typically have biennial canes and perennial roots. Blackberries and raspberries are also called caneberries or brambles. It is a widespread and well known group of several hundred species, many of which are closely related apomictic microspecies native throughout the temperate Northern hemisphere and South America. Wikipedia   

 

Björnbär (Rubus subg. Rubus) är ett samlingsnamn på flera arter inom familjen Rosaceae, släktet Rubus. Den vanligaste är sötbjörnbär (Rubus plicatus). Björnbärskomplexet består ett stort antal arter, underarter och former, som hör till de mest svårskilda i vår flora. Odlade sorter är dessutom ofta hybrider av olika arter. De kallas ibland även “svarthallon” och “björnhallon” (se även blåhallon). Tidigare betraktade man björnbär som en enda art, vilken då kallades Rubus fruticosus.

 

Have a great week my friend! And hey don’t be a stranger communicate do write something.
