Dear friends! The Spring is turning into Summer. Our Knugarden looks very inviting so I welocme you all for a drink and/or a snack by the pool. Maybe I should announce a little warning - there's a chance you'll get very wet if Uncle Sergej and Raspi decide to dive ..... :D

Knuti-Judi - I'm hoping the gurus will find 'a miracle solution' so everybody can write here again.

Ralph - Thank you for the email. I'll see what I can do but now it's too hot for me and my brain is melting. I never feel very creative during a hot period. :D Thanks also for the information of Wolodja!

Chris - It doesn't look good in the north but I hope the damages won't be as bad as feared.

Mervi I have sent a link to a wonderful YWP story on Facebook.

I was reading Purzelbaum's blog this morning and it does seem that a year has made Wolodja more confident about exploring Kati's enclosure and Kati and he seem to be leaving scent markings. The problem may come when he is in the small enclosure and does his stereotype swimming. Though this does not do him any harm it is not nice to see.
These screen captures which effect the non password users crop up everywhere now, they are a nuisance but I suppose necessary to stop "Bots".
Good to hear that Orsa Park is okay from the floods.
I will be in the Oxford Library later on and will look in here then

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - here in Malmö the sun is shining and it's good. In northern Finland and Sweden the sudden heat wave have caused awful floodings. My hometown Tornio and the neighbour town Haparanda on the Swedish side of the border are threatened by water masses when the ice in the Tornio river is melting very rapidly. There has even been unusually much snow this Winter which makes it even worse.

Even in Dalarna where Orsa is there are floodings. Many roads are closed and the houses near the lakes and rivers are in the risk zone. Luckily the Orsa Predator Center is located on a hill so there's no risk for our animal friends there. The rivers in the north are really long and broad so the thick ice melting always causes problems but this year the problems are worse than usual.

Yeo - I saw some of your photos in FB. I'm sure you had a nice day in the Tierpark.

Ralph - Let's hope the separation of Tonja and Wolodja will be worth it so if Tonja gives birth again the cub will be strong and healthy.

Chris - I'm sure the nature is happy about the rain!

Britta-Gudrun - It was good for the German team to win the game. This tournament has been a disappointment. Maybe because the expectations were high after the success in the Olympic Games and put a pressure on the team. - I hope the 'handyman' came at the appointed time!

In KWM you'll find Gudrun's report from the Tierpark and the Zoo. I wish everybody a good start of this week!

Guten Morgen!
Heute mal wieder als early bird, weil ich auf einen Handwerker warte.
Das Wetter ist unveraendert grau und regnerisch im Suedwesten. Es duerfte
noch etwas mehr regnen fuer den Garten.

Yeo, wie war dein gestriger Eindruck von Tonja? Wolodja scheint den Ortswechsel ja recht gut zu verkraften.

Mervi, sorry ueber das Eishockeyergebnis fuer Finnland, aber der Sieg nutzt der Deutschen Mannschaft sowieso nichts mehr, allenfalls in psychologischer Hinsicht.

Patricia, schoen, mal wieder von dir im KWM etwas zu lesen.

Ich wuensche allen einen guten Start in die neue Woche!

Endlich regnet es richtig - das haben wir gebraucht.
Ich trinke auf Mutter Ursula und Tonja - CHEERS. :)

Good evening, dear Knuipians!

@ Teddybärenmutti
Das hört sich gut an, wie in Finnland Muttertag gefeiert wird. Das könnte mir gefallen.

Heute war ich im Tierpension und habe Tonja besucht. Das war ein Muttertagsgeschenk, das ich mir selbst gemacht habe. Ich wollte auch gern das neue Brillenbärenbaby ansehen. Aber das hielt sich im hinteren Teil des Geheges im Schatten auf und kletterte auf seiner Mutter herum.
Aber es war ein sehr schöner Tag und der Tierpark war auch nicht so voll wie ich angenommen habe.
I wish you all a pleasant evening!

Chris - I guess Inge has tried the Back Room, too ....

Ralph - Here's to Mother Ursula! She was a dear member of our 'Knuipe family'.

Teddybärenmutti - How about a Spicy Ice? I don't know what it is but Uncle Sergej claims it's very refreshing. :D

What a pity, that Inge can´t write here.
Has she tried it at the "Back-Door" ?

The rain has stopped - we have sunshine.
( it was not enough rain )

Chris - I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Britta-Gudrun - 'Ich werde trotzdem nicht gießen, aber gerne den Bonus von Monika geniessen' - that rhimes beautifully! :D

Knuti-Judi - Pasch! We just have to drink a Pasch O Doble together! :D

Inge sends her best greetings to you all! She can't write here but she can read anyway.

There's a Mother's Day 'bonus' for you in KWM. Monika aus Berlin has made a wonderful potpourri of photos of animal mothers. I think the titel THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL is very suitable!

Teddybärenmutti - You found nice gifts to your mother. I'm sure she likes them! - Let's hope even Uncle Sergej managed to get a bunch of roses and maybe a magnum bottle of cod liver oil to Madame Nini. :D

Ralph, Britta-Gudrun - Nobody can understand the reasons for Wolodja's move. Tonja would have told when the time was right!

Chris - What luck we 'Freiherrins' can choose the days for our activities. No need to meet the big crowds. :D
