The sun is shining at the moment but it’s cool and it rained just minutes ago and more will come, we’ll try to take a walk between showers later on. I managed to mow the lawn for the first time in four weeks just before the rain came. The grass had grown high in some places and that grass was wet since the last rain and the morning dew. I hate that because the mower just clogs and I had to stop every second minute to get all that green stuff (can’t really call it grass in that stage🙂 ) out so I could keep on mowing. In other places the grass was short and dry and so easy to mow.
It seems the machine from hell only works in the evening now, I haven’t heard it at all so far today. I guessed it was like that so we walked down to the creek early this morning, well not early to be me, I slept until seven am and that’s pretty late for me🙂 Hector behaved like he always has and walked a bit in front of me until we came to the fields where the noise comes from, then he started to walk behind me again. But when he realised nothing was going to happen he became that happy dog he always has been again. He’s not that happy right now though, I think it took two seconds from when I opened up the kitchen door until he jumped over the fence and ran up the road to the farm next door🙂 How I yelled at him when I discovered him🙂 He’s after the cow dung it seems and now he has a breath that kan kill bears🙂
The water level was unusually high down by the creek today. There shouldn’t be much water at all since it has rained so little and no other creek or ditch has especially much water in them. Something blocks the passage beneath a gravel road and I wonder if we’ve gotten beavers here again. Last time they disappeared strangely as soon as people started to know we had them here. I won’t say they were victims of poachers but that’s my guess.
It’s almost only my dogs and I that walks down by the creek and since we haven’t been there for almost two months the path is hidden in all that grass.
Tomorrow I’ll go to the annual plant swapping day on the other side of the bog. I won’t bring that many plants myself this year because most of what I have germinated rather late due to the late spring and they are rather small yet, I’ll have plenty nest year instead🙂 But like always I most likely will bring home more plants than I brought. This day is really more a chance to meet people living far away that we won’t meet otherwise, some of them I know since over 15 years back. I’ll bring my camera because the place I’m going to will cost likely have around 300 different day lilies flowering. They predict rain for tomorrow but I hope it won’t be too much, a drizzle I can take though.
I could hear and see that Bertil wasn’t too happy, so I guess wild hogs were close.
I better put on some socks and shoes and take that walk since the sun still is shining. The forest flies have gotten a second spring but I can take that without my mosquito hat. Thankfully the biting ones are gone for this year by now🙂
The Forbidden Forest.
Have a great day!
