We’re usually alone out there.
It could have been so nice outside today, it’s fairly warm, the sun shows itself every now and again and so far the rain showers have missed us. But the wind! It’s back and as strong as ever and it feels a bit chilly too. The only place we could escape from it today was down by the creek where the forest is filled with trees of all sizes. The wind can easily blow throw the forest where there only are big trees.
My dogs and I are usually alone when we’re taking our morning walk, normally as soon as the sun goes up. Today we were a bit later though and didn’t get out until around 7 am. To my big surprise I saw a man standing by the edge of the forest and we started talking when we had reached him. It turns out he once lived a short distance away until he moved to town a few years ago. Every now and again he drives to his ol home and take walks in the forest and on the bog. He must have started around 5 am to reach this place when I met him 🙂 Even though he had lived in the area almost his entire life he still had a map, one never knows what can happen on that bog.
I had hoped to be able to be outside some today but since the weather is less inviting than what the predictions said I think I’ll just stay indoors doing very little. Well I have the laundry and there are other things I could do but I just don’t feel like doing them 🙂
Yesterday I saw that the seeds of the Wild Prairie Rose (Rosa arkansana) had germinated but it’s a bit early to do anything with them yet, I also saw one Rosa moyesii (we call if Mandarin rose), I sowed those seeds three years ago and finally at least one of them shows :-). A few other plants starts to show as well but more about those whan I know they’ll survive these first weeks.
It’s time for that pot of tea and after that I better do that laundry, it’s so windy today that it’ll dry fast 🙂
Have a great day!
