I can hear my neighbor mowing the lawn, we had reached 28C (82,4F) long before 11am so I’m not sure it’s a good idea to do that, unless one would like to be hit by heat stroke of course 🙂 My lawn needs mowing too but I rather wait a few days until this heat ends. There is a weak wind blowing but it neither helps nor makes it worse. It does dry out the ground though.
So I have started to water in the garden. The annuals are draught resistant but they grow on pure sand so it gets dry there very fast. I also water my vegetable garden, the potted flowers and the ones I really want to save, the rest of the vegetation must be draught resistant or they’ll die. If they survive good for them, if they die I’ll get a chance to try something new 🙂
It was warm already when we woke up this morning and I feared the worst, fly wise, when we went out on our walk. Oddly enough they mostly left me alone, I could even stand still a few minutes so I could eat some raspberries 🙂 I’ve noticed that Albin really don’t like to walk on gravel roads, he runs out in the grass as soon as he gets tha chance and rubs both his face and feet in it 🙂 He also walks exactly beside me all the way if he is leash free! None of my dogs have ever been close to that 🙂
So we’ll keep on doing that where the grass is so think that he can’t break through if he suddenly wants too because I’m pretty sure that when he starts to noticing the wild life the wish of walking beside me will vanish totally 🙂 and he is also way too slow right now to get anywhere if he would like to run away 🙂
Albin’s father is sensitive towards proteins so there’s a risk that Albin might be too so I got the name on the food they use and checked its table of contents and it is almost the same as it is in the food I use here. The protein level was the exact same but it did vary some when it came to vitamines and minerals. Some were more in the one I use and some were less. The one I have is slightly cheaper but I could get the other one delivered to my door cost-free. So I’ll give the one I have at first and if nothing happens I’ll continue with it. One could say that it doesn’t cost me anything to get it home either because I just pick up a sack when I’m in the grocery store anyway 🙂 but it is good to know I can get the other one delivered if I need to get it.
It is cloudy and a whole degree (C) lower than before but I don’t think it is a good idea to take a walk with a puppy in this heat, they’ll have to settle with the garden for now. It is time for a pot of tea I think and perhaps something to eat, hot weather sort of takes away hunger feelings.
Have a great day!
