Some good and some bad

Lookie lookie! 3 of my from the outside stolen bonsais are alive! Happy days! The beech I nicked last week got what we in Swedish call mouse ears (those first green leave that have the shape and size of mouse ears) this weekend and seems to be thriving. The oaks have green buds that might burst any day now. Unfortunately, the elder is looking less green every time I see it. The color of the needles are turning more and more brown and I have sort of given up hope.

ほら!外から盗んだ盆栽の中、三つは生きている!やった!先週とったぶなの木はもうネズミの耳がある。ネズミの耳というのはスウェーデンの表現で春に最初のネズミの耳と同じサイズと形の葉っぱだ。オークも葉っぱのつぼみがあって、そろそろちゃんとした葉っぱになるだろう。残念ながら、杜松は次第に茶色くなっている。たぶんもう駄目でしょ。悲しいけど、仕様が無くて諦めた。

The beech is alive! ぶなの木、生きている!

The oak is fine too! オークもオッケー!

The color of the elder is rather ominous… 杜松の色、結構不吉だ…

Other things in the garden is blooming and growing too. I picked this year’s first flower bouquet yesterday and the dandelions are popping up everywhere. In some weeks the fruit trees will start blooming, and I have to say that when the apple flowers starts it’s almost as beautiful as the cherry blossoms.

庭にはかに咲いてるものがいっぱいある。昨日今年の最初の花束を拾ったし。そろそろ、果物の木は咲き始めて実はりんごの木が咲く時、桜程きれいだと思う。
