Perhaps spring has survived anyway?
The day started much the same as it ended yesterday, cold and cloudy. So I started a fire in the stove and then we went for a walk. We went out to the bog and suddenly I could hear the Black Grouse roosters trying to impress the hens almost beside me🙂🙂🙂 We had walked so quietly that they hadn’t heard us coming. But naturally I stepped on a branch just before I would be able to see them as well🙂🙂🙂
I continued to have a fire burning in the stove when we came home, I have shut down all but one radiator so it feels a bit chilly inside even if it isn’t. Suddenly the sun came out and then it got just too hot indoors🙂🙂🙂 But I refused to open up any windows or doors to let the heat out, so I and all the animals went out into the garden instead.
I have an old plum tree in the garden that has been dead for over ten years now but I have never taken it down but let clematis grow up climbing on it instead. But now all the old roots had rotten away and to be honest, I don’t think it still would have stood there if it wasn’t for the clematis🙂 So I leaned towards the tree and it fell within a second and I dug up the clematis so I could plant them by the pond. It isn’t always they survive a move like that but they just couldn’t stay where they were. A small Laburnum is growing there now and they would only have killed that little tree in the long run.
I then moved the dead tree and placed it by the pond, naturally I forgot to take a photo both before I leaned towards it and when it got its final place. At the same time I was doing that my neighbor started his war against moss in the lawn. It is a bit funny actually because he cares for his lawn a lot and does everything right and still he has a lot of moss in it. I really don’t care about my lawn and have no moss at all in mine🙂🙂🙂 So now he’s spreading ferrous sulphate all over his lawn, with a tiny watering can🙂
He then told me that he has a work colleague that wants to rent the cottage my neighbors just sold. That would be great because then we’ll know that it isn’t a totally insane person that moves here when they have moved to town. Unfortunately secluded places like this attracts the most odd people in the world and I asked my neighbor if that was why we lived here🙂🙂🙂
I think it is time for a short nap and then we’ll go out for a walk again. It looks as if the weather will at least not be rainy today, next week they say we might get up to 22C (72F). Well we’ll know better when that day comes🙂
