We went out an hour later this morning and the weather was as fine as yesterday morníng. Around 13C (55F) and a weak breeze passed through the trees. Now a couple of hours later the sky is almost totally covered with clouds. I´ve just checked the weather forcast for this day and it doesn´t show a single cloud on our sky here. So there must be something wrong with the sky! How do I fix a broken sky? If You know please tell me, it seemes to happen more frequently nowdays than it did just a couple of years ago :-) :-)
It´s almost impossible to see the little pond now. But it is still full with water.
Now my kitchen door stays open all day long. But I do put away any leftovers from the cat food. The Magpies has once again choosen my garden to raise their young ones. Even if this garden is one of the few with lots of different bushes where they can hide (this is farm district and only usuable things like berry bushes and apple trees are allowed here. They think I´m a bit strange :-) :-) :-) ) I do have two cats and three dogs. That would scare of most animals to be honest.
But they are smart birds. Yesterday forinstance. They had found something on the ground that they wanted, but there was the problem with my two cats resting just besdie it. The two magpie parents then landed not far from my cats, making a lot of noice to get their attention. Naturally my cats started to follow these two obviously stupid birds. Second by second they came a bit further away from what ever the magpies wanted. When the young ones, that doesn´t fly especially well yet, thought the distance was far enough they flew down and picked the thing up and the parents flew away from my cats :-) :-) :-)
I can´t find any fish in my pond any longe, I wonder if perhaps Bertil and Teodor is behind that. The water is full of algies so they might be further down, close to the bottom, but I doubt that. So this week I´ll have to buy that anti algie thingy one puts in the water and I also has to buy new fishes. I don´t want a mosquitoe farm so close to my kitchen door :-) :-)
There were surprisingly many people that doesn´t eat bananas at the birthdayparty yesterday, but the more the rest of us got :-) I was wondering if I should perhaps make half of it as a banana pudding and perhaps try strawberries in the other half next time. I think that strawberries would work and every one loves strawberries. This was indeed a delicious dessert that I will make many more times :-)
Every single flower on this delphinium is this big. Makes it fall when the winds blow from the wrong direction unfortunally.
It´s time for another cup of tea, sitting on my kitchen stairs looking at the mountine I can see from my cottage. Perhaps I´ll see some dragon flies? Their season has started and I just love them.
Have a great day now!
