That’s my plan anyway.
Almost as warm today and almost as windy too but now finally it seems as if the wind has blown elsewhere. I did spend some time in the garden despite the wind and started to chop down parts of the Hungarian lilacs with an ax. I’m not removing them, just pre-pruning them 🙂 I want to reduce the size of them because they are around 5 meters high and just as wide (much the same in yards). It’s impossible to reach in to it so I started chopping with an ax so I can reach with my chainsaw later on.
They are great wind breakers but take ao much space now that they slowly kill everything else. Hungarian lilacs are almost the only lilacs I like because they spread very slowly and the flowers don’t smell that much. When one have as much lilacs as I have one starts to appreciate less smelling flowers 🙂 The flowers reeks when they are decaying and that’s even worse. There will be lots of space when I’m finished with them and my plan is to plant the Red oaks that now grow in my window there. Well not all of them since it looks like all 15 acorns germinated 🙂
The deers don’t eat as much as they did earlier so my plan for them is to slowly reduce the amount of food I give them and also place the food closer and closer to the fence. It should by the end of next week mean that the food will be placed outside my garden and if this weather continues they won’t come back until next autumn again. Well that’s the plan anyway 🙂 I do hope they’ll leave the little Azalea alone so I finally can see more than one flower on that bush 🙂
Bertil has seen better days, he came back this morning with clear signs that he has been in a fight. I think it was the big lumps of fur that was removed from him that gave it away 🙂 One eye look a bit injured too. My guess is that he has been fighting with Salmiak again, if not it might be the cat lady at the farm next door. But he’s not the one to stay at home licking his wounds, he went back out there as soon as he could, so I guess it was he who won.
I think I’ll make a pot of coffee now, later on I’ll watch Grimm on channel six and after that I’ll watch the big finale in the Swedish part of the Eurovision Song Contest. I’ll post a video tomorrow of the winner. Don’t have any high expectations of high quality music, this year is worse than ever 🙂
Have a great day!
