Yet another warm and sunny day.
It is strangely warm here for this time of year. I can´t remember that I’ve ever worn shorts in the beginning of October🙂 I don’t mind it at all to be honest even though I do get a lot of mosquito bites on any piece of skin that is visible to them🙂🙂
The ground cloth and wood chips has worked fine around my little pond this year. Only a couple of grass straws have managed to get through during the whole summer. I will continue to put more wood chips over the ground cloth as long as I have branches to make wood chips off. Next year I can start planting as well because by them my guess is that most roots from the weeds have died beneath it all. I’ll have different grasses, ferns and bushes planted around it.
We still have some butterflies flying around here as well as dragon flies. The bumblebee home beneath my wall is still going on as winter wasn´t even close and I even saw a couple of wasps here outside my kitchen door. But they must struggle now because there’s almost no flowers left flowering, only some autumn asters and sunflowers. But the Larkspur’s have new buds that probably will open up in a couple of days🙂
We had fog again this morning but since it was less thick than yesterday we walked to the part of the village I seldom is. But I do like to walk around on the bog in fog, when it is so think that one only can see a couple of meters (a couple of yards). Listening to the sounds and guessing to whom that sound belongs. If I can’t figure out who it is I usually say that it is a troll making them🙂🙂
It´s time to finish my cup of tea and to take a walk with my dogs again. This is the last day before the moose hunt that we’ll be walking in the forest. I normally stay away a week so that we don´t scare away any eventual moose we have here, they normally walk away anyway but at least I know it isn´t our fault🙂 :-) Have a great day!
