Perhaps it’s best to buy a new sheet for the pond?
I think we’ll get thunder later tonight, it’s a bit too warm to be honest since it has been cloudy most part of the day and I have seen clouds building up to thunderclouds. Those however are already gone because the wind is pretty strong both here on the ground and way up there in the sky.
The water level in the pond has sunk yet a bit and perhaps it’s best to just buy a new rubber sheet instead of repairing the one I now have? I might not find the holes if it is tiny and if it’s big it might be hard to fix anyway. But I just don’t want to take it all up again, especially not now when everything grows so good both in and around the pond. Well if I do I’ll make it bigger than it is now, both longer and deeper. Especially deeper since it has frozen all the way down to the bottom a twice now, still I had dug down as far as I should to make it safe from freezing that much🙂
I’ve sown two different kinds of blue mountain poppies and now they have started to germinate. They are a bit tricky even if one knows how to do. Firstly they must be kept in high humidity and rather high temperature but as soon as they have started growing they must have cool nights, preferably just above 10C (50F) . They don’t like to be replanted either so I usually fail with them when doing that🙂 Today I’ll sow two species of Mock Oranges.
My biggest apple tree get visited by a small flock of starlings every morning, they eat a big black fly that seems to love that apple tree. I have no idea what kind of fly it is and if it’s useful in any way. I stay away from it since it doesn’t bother me, to be honest it doesn’t seem to do anything but sit on the branches of that apple tree all day🙂 We had a starling here for many years that sounded like a cuckoo clock🙂 I always looked forward to when it would arrive🙂 But starlings don’t get that old so now I can only hope that another one comes along that sounds the same🙂
It’s time to make a pot of tea and something to eat. My dogs are sleeping all over the cottage and not even the hammering from my neighbor is interesting enough to make them get up. Tomorrow I’ll work over time, oh how I wish I hadn’t agreed to that🙂
