They said we were going to have sunny weather today and I can’t deny that the sun is shining somewhere behind all those clouds. The sunshine has however never reached the ground so I still feel as if they got it wrong as always. We must have the worst meteorologists in the world here in this country. They say we’ll get sunny tomorrow as well so I guess we won’t see any sunshine tomorrow either 🙂
They also said we were going to have strong winds today but I’ve been walking in the open fields just now and I can’t say I felt any wind at all. I have to admit that it has been rather pleasant weather even if it is cloudy because it is fairly warm and no wind. This warm weather is however bringing out the tics again, I picked one from Sune yesterday afternoon. I guess we’ll have to live with that since the climate is warmer now than before. I really don’t mind the loss of snow but I do mind that the tic season gets longer.
The hunters were out today in the part of the forest where we met them last week, I could hear two shots clearly. Suddenly they were all here around noon but they never put up any signs that they were hunting here so I have no idea what they were doing. They could of course be looking for an animal that only got wounded by the shot so they were out searching for it because I did hear a dog bark. Three weeks ago they must have done the same thing because I saw several drops of blood on the gravel road. If they can’t shoot the animal properly they really shouldn’t be out hunting at all!
It just sounded as most of them drove away again so we’ll be able to take one more walk in the forest before it gets dark again. I was a bit surprised the other day when I saw two woodpeckers in my apple tree eating apples! I didn’t know they ate apples. I wouldn’t have been surprised if they had been pecking on the tree itself since half of it already has fallen but they were only concentrating on the apples.
I have four apple trees in my garden but really can’t eat any apples myself, my stomach sort of gives up if I eat any. So I am thinking of actually cutting them down and perhaps replace them with hardy cherry trees. I don’t know why but I’ve never had any stomach problems after eating cherries and I do like that berry. I don’t think I would be able to get many myself though, the birds are nasty fast in eating them all before I would get a chance 🙂 I’ve also been thinking about perhaps replacing at least one of the apple trees with an oak and I doubt it would be especially big before the day I pass on 🙂
It is time for a pot of tea and after that another walk. It still doesn’t look like the sun will show itself and it is only two hours left before it will set.
Have a great day!
