A morning like others.
The sun is finally breaking through the clouds after a rather dark and grey morning. It was that kind of morning when it was to warm to wear a sweater but too cold to not wear one🙂 Lots of dew in the spider webs but they were hard to see anyway since the sun didn’t shine on them. I could hear cows in the distance and some cranes as well, but mostly I heard small birds chirping like they do during autumn and winter.
I haven’t seen the badger since Sune so happily jumped up on its back, I guess the poor animal finally decided this was a way to busy road to walk since it was the second time we disturbed it and chased it away, even if we actually never wanted to scare it. But I guess badgers doesn’t care if it was on purpose or not, they still don’t like it especially much.
We haven’t come especially close to any deers either for quite some time now, except for this morning. We were walking on the gravel road minding our own businesses when suddenly two of them jumped up like two Jack in the box toys. We would never have noticed them at all if they hadn’t and now they scared the living daylight out of us🙂
A dead mole in the middle of the road caught some interest amongst the dogs and Nova wanted to bring it home with her but I really have to put the line somewhere so I didn’t allow her. I guess it’s one of the cats that finally closed the curtains for the poor animal, strange really since not even foxes that really can’t be choosy would eat a mole, they is said to both taste and smell rather bad, I’ve never tried it myself though so I really don’t know.
I had a short chat with the wasps living by my entrance door. I guess they too lack energy due to this rather dismal summer and since they hadn’t bothered me at all this year I told them that I wouldn’t poison them only because I could. I’ll spray that wasp killing spray later when they all are gone so that next years wasps know this is a dangerous place.
The warmth from the sun has woken up the last remaining flies and bumblebees in my garden, later on I’ll plant some perennials to keep at least the bumblebees going for some time more, I don’t feel the flies is necessary however but I guess they’ll benefit from both the nectar and pollen those flowers will provide. I myself will make a pot of tea and pour in some honey, not that I really need that extra energy the honey will give but I do like it sometimes.
