I’ve hung my trousers by the stove so they can dry up. It’s raining outside and walking through high grass isn’t something to recommend if one wants to stay dry🙂 It’s a bit tricky to walk around here now since it’s hunting season and because the castle owner has blocked some crucial roads because of the cattle.
I can’t pass those gates as long as there are cattle close, panicking dogs and curious and perhaps furious cattle is not a good combination. It’s tricky to walk in the forest as well since I don’t know where the hunters are or where. But there’s this little part of the forest where the hunters only can get in from one place and I couldn’t see any cars around so we walked in there this morning.
I love to walk around in this little forest. There are usually lots of different mushrooms there but this summer has been very dry and it’s hard to walk outside the old road after the thinning. They didn’t take many trees but they left all branches on the ground (as they should) so it’s hard to walk there even on a sunny day.
That part of the forest, completely surrounded by big fields used to be the only place they never hunted, a sort of safe zone. But the castle owner bought that part too, as he has most other areas around here, so now there’s no safe zone left. But as I said, they can only get there from one direction so it’s easy to see if they are there.
The rain will continue to fall most parts of the day and we really need it so I won’t complain, strange because if there’s anything I always complain about it is rainfall🙂 I have loads of dvd’s I haven’t seen so I think I’ll watch some of those today. I also have the laundry to do and I think I’ll need a little nap as well.
I took some photos on our walk to the bog yesterday. Our hunters weren’t there so we could walk around as we pleased.
But firstly it’s time to make a pot of tea, nothing to eat though because I’ve already had my breakfast. I think it’s best to do the laundry after that, it’s no fun and so easy to ignore until it is too late to start🙂
I was almost sure that this little spruce growing on the old barn ruin would have died this dry summer, but it looks better than ever.
Have a great day!
