I’ve been effective this morning.
Today is just as beautiful as yesterday was dreary. The sun rose above a frosty white landscape filled with sounds with spring. Black Grouse roosters tried to impress both each other and the hen surrounding them and the sound echoed over the village. Geese, cranes and ravens did their best to drown out them but had little success since also all the other birds and the cows did what they could to be heard.
There was no wind but that changed later in the day, something I was grateful for when I mowed the lawn for the first time this year. The wind both cooled me down and it also dried the grass after the last days rain. It is amazing how fast the grass has grown these last days and how many Dandelions that shone like little suns in the lawn. Just minutes after I had cut down those flowers new stems rose and new dandelion flowers opened up :-) I’m glad I like them a lot :-)
I moved two ferns to the pond area this morning and one of them split up to four smaller plants. I noticed that the white Wisteria is alive and so is two different Clematis, they will all soon climb on those tree trunks I’ve placed by and around the pond. Later on I’ll get some small fish that won’t eat any tadpoles but lots of mosquito larvae instead. There’s not a single frog egg that hasn’t hatched but I can’t see any tadpoles, I guess they hide in the plants.
After that I washed my clothes and my thumb. I’m not an expert but I do think my thumb look better now, yes there’s still some yuck left but only very little and when I had washed that away fresh blood came out of the wound. My thumb feels much better though so I take that as a good sign. I also replanted some plants (another species of maple seed has germinated :-) ) and I’ve done all this before the clock reached two.
Now I feel I deserve some rest but first I’ll kill some flies in my kitchen, yes the fly season has started. But so far none of the really annoying ones are out and about yet. The flies in my kitchen are just confused ones that can’t find their way out even if the door is wide open :-) It is time to put up those nets in front of the doors and windows again!
