Not a day with lots of activities.
Even though the sun didn’t show especially much today it still became one of the warmest days so far, 8,8 C (47,4 F). The wind is back but it isn’t especially strong and it is sort of warm too. This is the kind of weather that brings us cranes to the lake. I heard one of the nesting ones this morning but it stood behind a large grove of trees so I couldn’t see it. I’ll have plenty of photographs of cranes later on but it’s always fun to get the first one for the year. But there’s a risk that they won’t stay for especially long now when spring is a bit late, last year we had 27 000 here at the same time 🙂 🙂 🙂
Today has been one of those days when I’ve done very little besides taking walks with my dogs and napping for way too long 🙂 I have however planted some paprika seeds and cuttings from the two tomato plants I’ve saved through winter. There isn’t any good reason to save tomato plants really, seeds and even plants are very cheap to be honest. The only reason I can think of is that the tomatoes one got the year before were very tasty and no one knows the variety name. But I like trying things so why not 🙂 Besides, tomato cuttings is fool-proof, I don’t think anyone can fail with those 🙂
I was planning on making all the twigs and branches from the apple tree to wood chips this spring but I have to rethink that now, it looks like lots of small birds are building nests in there so that will have to wait till autumn arrives 🙂 But the twigs fropm the lilacs that I have on the front side of the house is nest free, the dogs and cats walk there too often I think, so those can be chipped already tomorrow is weather permits. I need new chips around the pond, the deers have kicked away most of what was on the small bump 🙂 (well hill is just a too big word for that pile of soil 🙂 🙂 🙂 ).
It’s time to make something to eat and perhaps some cocoa today, Merlin is just about to start on tv. Otherwise I don’t think anything is worth watching on any channel today 🙂
Have a great day!
