Bread Wheat
♥ Join Green Thumb Sunday ♥

The photos in this post is taken where? At the secret island!

Oh, how I love to tease you like this! *giggles*

Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) is belonging to the family of grass species – not only very useful for giving us our daily bread, butt also very, very beautiful in my eyes.

I really feel joy in my heart and soul when out on the Swedish roads and see the good old Swedish countryside with all it’s cultivation. It’s like balsam for the soul!

Meet one of the secret islands more shy natives:

Swedish red old barn

Maybe it’s just by heritage and old memories coming up when I see the Swedish countryside, butt I really think that it’s very beautiful, picturesque and unique – especially with all those Falu red buildings we have had.

Swedish red old barn

In the 17th century in Sweden, the red paint was a sign of wealth since bricks were very rare back then. It’s named from a small neighborhood called Falun, “Falu rödfärg (redpaint)” and is based on a pigment which is a by-product from the Copper minings there.

We just love to take photos of EVERYTHING in the nature, because all of it really is mother natures wonders.

Here we have…. What???!!! A peeping Tom…? *giggles*

Mr Lifecruiser spotting something

I bet you didn’t think that about Mr Lifecruiser hah? Me neither! At first I thought it was these kissers he was peeping at:

Lifecruisers sheep kisses

Nothing that exciting to see though ;-) He was taking a shot of this useful berry:

Swedish Sloe

The Sloe (Prunus spinosa or blackthorn) is often picked by us Swedes after the first frost has arrived, to make a very tasty Sloe liqueur of them. Then the bitter taste of them don’t come through that much.

You gotta try it! Cheers my dears!

Look at my own style – looks like I’m going to do #2! *ROFLMAO*

Mrs Lifecruiser spotting something

Butt I have to tell you – it’s no dance on Roses to be an explorer with my back! *giggles*

By now even the island natives are screaming at us:

- Skip that bullshit and show us proof of that we’re at the secret island!!!

Sheep talk

Oh, stop whining, we’re getting closer! This is one small part of the shoreline which were not crowded with tourists trying to find the genuine….

Ooops! I nearly revealed the secret there…. *giggles*

Sheep talk

So, what do you say now? Do you believe that it exists?

    All I will reveal is that I know it exists but I will not say where. Your secret is safe with me. How could I forget that beach, gentle moonlight playing on the water, my first kiss. I had met him on the boat over from England to Gotenborg the start of my first overseas adventure at age 15. Fate brought us together again aweek later through mutual friends. An amazing coincidence. Ahhh what memories.

    There is no such things like a secret Island. Only secret love. Do you here me? You are in love with that Island.

    Besides: Red. That was considered a colour for the wealthy, ’cause what you wrote, the pigments from Copper.

    I’m going to sleep. Once again took me hours to post a short one.

    Have a better week

    Nope! Not believing a thing! It looks NOT like an island to me — I have just such a little inlet down at the very end of my street – and it’s on the river. I don’t live on an island though… I DO live on a peninsula!

    I love the wheat! It’s gorgeous! We NEVER see wheat grown around here — sometimes just winter wheat as a cover crop – but not bread wheat! You’re going to hurt yourself taking pictures though! I never realized it was such a dangerous sport!

    mar SPAIN said:

    Talking about a frost and the sloes is making me crave some cold weather. It has been too hot lately. I just crave some cozy weather. How nice! I believe it looks like an island.
