I can see the sun shine again. Yesterday they suddenly changed the predictions for a sunny day to a very cloudy day and that prediction was still there early this morning. It was cloudy but now the sun is shining again and I can see less of that white water in the sky. I even have the kitchen door open, there are still a few wasps around but it looks like they are giving up now. Yesterday one flew in and struggled a while to get through the window and suddenly it just fell down and died. The bumblebees are still working hard though so I guess their queens still are in the nests. A few butterflies are also flying around still.
It was a rather nice morning even if it was cloudy, a bit on the cool side but no wind. We walked in to the forest because I hoped it was chilly enough to keep the moose flies calm but it wasn’t. Lots of them around and I killed several that wanted to see if they could bite me somewhere. We didn’t have these flies in Sweden 30 years ago and I do think they could have stayed abroad and the warmer climate will only make them feel even more at home I’m afraid. All I can hope for is that this dry summer has killed lots of them and that their larvae will have problems too because they need wet soil to survive and there isn’t a lot of that around now.
It is time to place the potted flowers somewhere there the frost won’t reach them before I bring them inside for the winter. I don’t have that many this year. I can’t just bring them in because they will react to the more dry air in the cottage. I’ll start by placing them on the patio close to the wall and cover them during nights if there’s a risk of frost. I doubt that will be any day close though.
I’ve done most of the laundry and I only have some t-shirts left to do. The rest is hanging in the patio to dry. A weekend is really too short, two days are never enough three would be fine at the moment but I guess it wouldn’t take long until I thought that was too little too 🙂 I didn’t win the lottery yesterday so I’ll keep on dreaming 🙂
Have a great day!
