The Magpies have decided that my garden is a great place to let their young ones start their lives outside the nest, I mean I have four dogs and two cats! Ok, they have chased away even Bertil so they know how to protect their younglings but if my cats decided to cooperate? I doubt they would stand a chance. The small ones can barely fly to be honest, they jump around while flapping their wings, sometimes they land on their backs 🙂 🙂 🙂
The forest flies have started their lives in the air too now, they aren’t that many yet but more will come every day now. They decided that Orvar was the one to circle around and that was a good choice since he really doesn’t care. I usually go insane after just a few minutes 🙂 🙂 🙂 Tomorrow I’ll bring my mosquito hat, I just hate it when they try to get in my ears and in my nostrils! Not many horse flies yet though but they are out there already.
I replanted the last of the big tomato plants today and placed it on my patio, all the cuttings already have small tomatoes hanging on them and I saw it was the variety Gardener’s Delight, I found the old seed packet this morning. I did sow a striped one rather late and those plants are still rather small, I might get a few tomatoes on them but these were sown mostly because I want to take cuttings from them for an early start next year.
I also planted a cutting I took from a Frost Grape vine the winter two years ago. I planted it by my fence towards south and I hope it will grow well there. I have one by my patio as well but I don’t get any grapes from that one. The flowers just fall off after flowering and noo grapes are produced. I have no idea why, perhaps it’s because the plant is fairly young yet? I’ve been unlucky with frost all years before this one too, it hit just as the flowers were opening up, this year there are only buds so far and I hope we’ve had the last night with frost.
Our second princess is getting married today, exactly right now actually 🙂 I can’t say I’m especially exited about it though 🙂 Royalties are more exiting for those not having them. But at least this time it isn’t us taxpayers that pays for the wedding, it is our king. Talking about kings, perhaps I should tell You some about our history and the kings walking hand in hand with it?We’ve had three or four odd ones but most of them have been much like most tyrants have been. Yes most kings have been tyrants, some more some less but if it hadn’t been them some other nut head would have been just as worse to be honest.
It’s time to give all animals their food and then something for me too. I still have lots of fruit and custard left so I think I’ll make myself some fruit salad today too 🙂 Naturally I’ll make a pot of tea too 🙂
Have a great day!
