A Dogs Life – Four Chihuahuas in Nykøbing

I have the chance to share my life with 4 dogs, 4 chihuahuas. I know what you think : Mexican dogs in Denmark ? Don’t worry, in fall and wintertime they wear very warm coats ! Blueberry, Yokko, Diva and Zara love to walk, whatever the season (but not when it’s raining !). Among our favourite walks, there is Svanedammen (The Swan Pond) and all the boulevard along Gulborgsund Strait, Strandenboulevarden (The Beach Boulevard), starting from Slotsbryggen (The Castle Docks).

Believe it or not, they’re able to walk up to 7 km ! That’s why they love to curl on the sofa to rest after those big treks…

The Conker Tree at Klosterkirken

In front of Klosterkirken (The Abbey Church), you can’t miss the magnificent conker tree (or horse-chestnut tree, Aesculus hippocastanum). Every time I admire it, I wonder how many marriage proposals took place under this tree… You can see the tree through the seasons, from spring to winter. (Click to see the galleries).

I don’t know how old is this tree. But we have proof it was already there in the early 1900s !

And here are some details about the leaves and the bark, taken during a past spring. I love the light through the leaves, the scales on the trunk, the lichen on the bark…
