GREENHOUSE IDEAS and CHRISTER'S BLOG

One of my favorite blogs is http://thecottagebythecranelakeolof1.wordpress.com/
Christer has been making plans to construct a greenhouse this year. He lives in Sweden

and the growing season is shorter. (so now of course I've been thinking about greenhouses and look what I've found!)

Christer used to have his own garden center and he grows the most amazing plants.
He also is a HUGE animals lover and has the happiest of pets. He takes them on daily walks and is always thinking of them.

He just rescued another dog Nova - SUPER NOVA!
(that's Nova on the left)
after the loss of his old Erna. She's fitting in well with his two boy dogs Hector and Orvar.
 He also has two cats, Teodor and Bertil.
This is Teodor who usually prefers to be inside and warm!  He reminds me of my Dewey.

I am TOTALLY in love with Bertil. Bertil is always following Christer and the dogs on their walks!



That cat is just the coolest. He reminds me of my Harry.
So, if you would like a WONDERFUL VISUAL TREAT, head over to Christer's blog because he's a FANTASTIC photographer.






JUST A FEW OF HIS PHOTOS!!!! LOL!

Oh wow! I'll have to stop by his blog and lurk for a while.

That green house made of old windows is awesome! It's also something that wouldn't be hard to do.

Hope you back is doing much better now?

Oh, I love his dogs and his photos. Don't you love blogs where you feel like you are in someone's life? His photos make you feel like that. A nice little vacation! Now I want another dog - lol! xoxo Pam

oldblackcatboo said...

Pam! Yes! It's like reading a good book where you can totally lose yourself for a litle while. :)
His dogs are so great, but it's that little Bertil that gets to me everytime! There's just something about how he follows them....
it just touches my heart.
