Where did the winter go? by RavenMontoya Where did the winter go? by RavenMontoya
Happy new year, guys! Hope you all had lovely holidays! :D
This is a picture from mid November, but the weather has been pretty much the same since then. (Rain, clouds, rain, fog, more rain and then some more rain again.) Sweden is experiencing the warmest winter in 100 years or so and it is really, really weird. It's like we still have autumn where I live. Spring flowers are on their way up already and the hellebores actually started to bloom before new year's eve. They are so pretty and a great treat because hellebores have never really wanted to flower in the garden before. I hope they'll survive the cold that might be coming this weekend. It would be so sad to see them die. :/
Anyway, enjoy this picture of a slightly puzzled Tintin and take care! :meow:

Aww, I've never thought of it as a goatee before. That's so cute! I've always loved that spot of orange on his chin. :meow:

So there's no winter where you live either? Winter came her about five days ago but before that it was spring. :XD:

I hope it stays away, actually. I'd rather have spring now than winter. I think Tintin would too. He walks on snow as if it was something very, very icky. :XD:

Same here. Gizmo turns around on the door step and goes straight back in if he thinks the weather is too bad to go out in.
Or sometimes he walks from the front door to the back door - just to check if it's actually raining there too. One never knows, I guess. :roll:

Why did I not see this photo in my news feed!?!? ;-; Wow, you're already having spring flowers already?! So lucky! You should take some pictures of the Hellebores! :) Tintin is so handsome here :heart: What an adorable boy!

Oh, weird. I've had that happen to me too sometimes, but I have no idea why. One user on my watchlist never shows up in my feeds and it's really annoying. :o (Eek)

I've taken some pictures of the hellebores, I'll see if I can upload one tomorrow. I'm so excited that they're actually having flowers, it's never happened before. :D It's really crazy out in the garden though. Crocuses and daffodils are coming out of the ground too... Like, hey, guys, you're not supposed to show before March! :XD:
But now there seems to be cold weather on the way so I'm slightly worried things might die. A lot of things died last year because of late frost so it would be sad if more things died. My candy striped tree peony has started to grow already (insane, it shouldn't do that before April-May or something) so I've covered it in white, fluffy fabric (no idea what it's called in English) and now I'll just hope for the best. Sweating a little... 

And thanks! Tintin really knows how to make cute faces. He's the friendliest cat I've ever know, but he's kind of hard to take pictures of. He either comes straight up to the camera to be petted or he just doesn't care at all so it's always hard work to get a good picture of him with some sort of eye contact between him and the camera. :giggle:

Hmm it's probably a glitch they're having. That's so weird! Have you tried re-watching the user and see if that works?

Yay! I can't wait to see it. Is it because it used to be too cold so they can't grow? Oh my goodness. You're so lucky! Everything is just dead right now. Ours usually bloom around February-ish - March, I think. Noooo! ;-; I hope that won't happen! I have never heard of that tree before xD BUT IT SOUNDS AWESOME. Is there a picture of it? I hope it survives! Fingers crossed.

Awwww, what a cutie! That's just so adorable. It may be hard work, but in the end it is definitely worth it! Just look at how handsome and gorgeous he is :heart:  Looking at this picture makes me want to reach into my screen to pet him, haha.

I think I tried that a while back. Might try it again and see if anything happens. :o (Eek) 

I'll find a picture of my candy striped peony too. It is my baby, in ways. I just love it and try my best to keep it alive. It has a fancy Japanese name and all. It's really cool. :D

Aww, he loves to be petted. He turns over and flashes his belly and sort of purrs: "Looooove me?" :XD:

Today it is 7ºC/45ºF outside. Some days it's been closer to 11ºC/52ºF, which is highly unusual. It should be safely below freezing to be sort of "normal" for this time of year around here. :)

Jag är seriöst SÅ trött på det här skitvädret!!!! Allt vi har är grått och lera och dimma, man vaknar på morgonen och det är mörkt, sen blir det bara mörkare, aldrig någonsin dag! Uuuuuuuuurk!!!! Men din bild är superfin!

Haha, eller hur! Det är ett jävla skitväder. (Och tack.) xD
Fast just nu vill jag hellre ha vår än vinter. Så många fina saker i trädgården kommer frysa sönder om det blir kallt nu. 8/
Det där med att det är mörkt hela tiden har ju medfört jättebra sömnvanor under ledigheten, för min del. *host* Det är inga problem med att gå och lägga sig fem på natten och vakna framåt eftermiddagen för det är nästan lika mörkt dygnet runt. x)

Jo jag vill också ha vår! Är trött på det här nu! Plus att eftersom vi hade snö i ca 2 veckor i november så känns det som att vi haft vinter å att det kommer bli som 2 vintrar på raken när snön kommer på nytt. ORKAR IIIINTEEEEE!!!! XD 
Hahaha, ja det låter super för din del! För min är det inte lika bra. Jag går och lägger mig runt 2 och ska egentligen upp vid 8-9, men eftersom det är så mörkt hela tiden så somnar jag superlätt om och vaknar inte förrän typ halv 12 nästa gång!!! O___O Men det spelar ingen roll hur länge jag sover för jag är alltid lika trött ändå. Plus på dåligt humör av allt det grå och dimmiga. >_____<

Ungefär samma här så jag gav liksom upp alla försök att gå upp tidigt. Fördelen med att vara frilansare är att jag sen kan sitta och jobba till två på natten istället. (Och få ännu mer störd dygnsrytm.) xD
Fast arbetsmoralen är pinsamt låg så här års. Det är mööööörkt och jag vill bara sova - men inte blir man pigg av det heller, nej. Är övertygad om att jag egentligen är ett mumintroll, som borde gå i ide och sova hela vintern!
Någon måste ju mata katterna i och för sig... Men även de sover mest hela dagarna nu för tiden. x)
