The sun is shining, a weak but warm wind is blowing and it’s just wonderful outside. We’ve just come back from a walk and now I sit in the kitchen close to the open door and just enjoy the bird song and the day in general. It started out foggy and very damp though, the humidity was still up at 100% so it didn’t take long until I started to sweat like a pig 🙂
Bumblebees and honey bees are buzzing outside, they all want more syrup but I don’t want to have to close the door even for a minute today so they’ll have to wait another day. I’ve picked out all the plants I had in my cool cellar as well this morning. They all seems to be alive and that doesn’t happen every year. Normally a third of them give up, for some it’s just too warm even if it rarely reach above 10C (50F) some need more water and other need less.
I also had my goldfish down there and I put six in the barrel last autumn, one had died, two have vanished but three were still alive, that’s worse than usual. I’m not sure what has happened to the two that vanished because I had a total cover of glass that they couldn’t jump out from. So now I need three more to put in the second barrel this summer. I do like Koi carps better but they are much more sensitive than goldfish.
It’s time to have a pot of tea and perhaps something to eat as well. Or I might bring the tea to the garden and do something there, I have some cleaning to do ion the flower beds but it can wait too if I don’t feel like doing anything 🙂
Have a great day!
