acicula means needle.
And coincidence will that in the photo below, the little sprigs sticking out of the snow are rose bushes. To be honest not that much of an coincidence, as i live in an infinite rose garden here.(the prickly rose one of the main ground covers here)
Just think when you get tired of the cold and snow. Think of me out here in the frozen North. After weeks of around -30 C , I tell you -25C feels so wonderful!
I do have a cold though today, it started last night. On a day like today the angels are watching over me, and they send me an angel to take me for a ski.
I would have sat in the house all day, watching movies. It's with Margriet i go for a ski. All is gloriously sunny in winter wonder land. The weather feels soooo soft. Yes, if you believe it or not, the sun feels almost hot.
And soon i feel totally healthy again. Even when i don't have a cold, my nose drips in the cold anyway. The only difference, I'm still sniffling behind the computer now.
I drink herb tea , picked in spring and summer from the woods and hills. Wild Sage (Artemisia frigida) and Spruce tips for vitamin c. And talking about the herbs, before bed I will make a cup of Rose petal, wild chamomile tea. The petals from the Prickly Rose and the chamomile, Matricaria matricarioides.
I didn't know i was going to talk flowers today and to late now to have a picture right here, it will have to do on top. And rightfully so, as i love flowers most!
