One must never overdo it.
It is a fantastic spring day but perhaps not as warm as they said it should be. We had frost during all night and puddles froze during those few hours. But I don’t mind after working hard for a couple of hours 🙂 Normally I don’t do that much in the garden at spring, well never really because plants tend to care very well for them selves 🙂 But this year the leafs from the irises just suffocated everything that grew beneath them, they were covering the ground as a wet thick blanket so nothing could grow through them.
I also removed lots of grass from another flower bed since I already had started doing things I normally don’t do 🙂 It is a flower bed that I’m not sure if I will keep but since I have removed all weeds I better keep it anyway 🙂 After that I started to dig up lots of artichokes. Around 7kg ( around 15,5 pound) of them. If You ever have planted artichokes in Your garden You’ll have them for the rest of Your life. It is almost impossible to get rid of them unless one use poison and I don’t do that. So I sort of just control the damages so to speak every now and again 🙂 This is a variety called Bianca that flowers here (most doesn’t because they start flowering to late in the year).
From now on Nova will be leashed at least until autumn arrives. We were almost at home when she spotted a hare that ran away and so did she 🙂 We were so close to home that I just walked home and she arrived before us. The hare is just to fast and smart so I was never worried that she actually would catch it 🙂 and this time she ran the right direction, out on the bog where no one could see her 🙂 🙂 🙂
I just kept on doing things after I had finished the garden. I started to clean the cottage and after (or during really) doing that I rearranged the furnitures in my bedroom. Well I don’t have that many furnitures there so it was done fairly quick. I was supposed to scrub the floors as well but I just had to stop before I couldn’t stop at all 🙂 🙂 🙂 I’ve read that people who has a too clean home get allergies and since I have enough with diseases anyway I really didn’t want to get allergies as well 🙂 🙂 🙂
So now I’m a bit tired and I realized that I have an inflammation in my right shoulder going up to my neck. Not so strange since that is what I use most at work when painting. Well I have to decide what I want for dinner and then I think we’ll take a walk again 🙂
Have a great day!
