Still no rain.
I had almost hoped for a rainy day so I could stay indoors doing nothing🙂 But so far it has been rather nice, a bit cold perhaps but that doesn’t matter. It has mostly been sunny but now dark thick clouds gather in the sky, they look like thunderclouds but it doesn’t feel like we’ll get any. The flies are reasonable calm and that’s something they never are if thunder is approaching.
Finally I’ve planted the two squash plants I have and the eight or so pepper plants in my tiny vegetable garden. I’m not sure pepper plants will make it outdoors here but I just don’t have any space for them elsewhere. I guess that if summer gets warm and sunny they will make it though but I can’t remember when we had a sunny and warm summer the last time.
I still have two hardy grape vines to plant but I just don’t know where🙂 All other spaces are already taken by other hardy grape vines so I must build some kind of espalier for them but where🙂 That’s how it goes when buying something before planning where it should be, something most gardeners do🙂 Perhaps I should take a day of from work to buy stuff for this espalier and the green house to be too🙂
Most perennials that I planted last year died as I’ve told You before but a few things survived and now I know what it was because I found two more living in pots that has been standing on the ground all winter🙂 It’s the Japanese Butterfly bush (Buddleia japonica, click on the name and a google picture search will open up)). It is perhaps not as beautiful as the B. davidii but at least this one survives in my garden🙂 I love butterflies and all butterfly bushes attracts butterflies.
Sune has more energy than a nuclear power plant🙂 Not even Nova can keep up with him🙂 They have just been chasing each other for half an hour and Nova is now sleeping by my feet but Sune just keeps on playing (at the moment with an empty plastic bottle) in the garden. He and Orvar were out walking earlier today (all by themselves) as well and they got the hardest of punishments, they were forced to stay in the cottage by themselves for fifteen minutes while Hector, Nova and I were out playing in the garden. I had the most obedient boys with me on our walk after that🙂🙂🙂 I bet they won’t remember that on our next walk🙂🙂
