It’s even better today.
I have to admit that I didn’t think we were going to get such a nice and warm day as we did when we were out walking this morning. The wind was a bit strong and even though it was much warmer this morning than the previous ones it still felt rather cold. The wind is still here but it turned towards warmer and at the moment we’re having 19,1 C (66,4 F) There will be noo need to start a fire in the stove this evening even if it should be cold tonight. My cottage keeps the warmth all night long.
I walked around in the garden early this morning after our walk and realised that there are some places where nothing I’ve planted seems to survive. Grass and weeds do ok but besides those very few other things do. But most of what I have planted there has been things I’ve sown, so I started moving plants, mostly columbines and geraniums, from some flower beds to these ones, after I had removed most of the grass and weeds of course 🙂 If these plants die I’ll let the grass and weeds take over the places and just mow it with the mower 🙂
The seeds for a perennial hollyhock that I’ve soaked in water for two days now had started to germinate so I sowed them in a plastic box and I’ll have them indoors until I think nights are safe from frost. Well I’ll most likely place them in front of the wall on my patio long before that happens but I’ll cover them if there’s a risk for frost again.
We had pancakes for dinner today, yes my dogs get half a pancake every time I make some but without anything on them. I myself had rowan jam and maple syrup on the ones I got 🙂 Now I would like to take a nap but since it’s work day tomorrow I need to be sur I’ll fall asleep rather early tonight since I go up before 5 am.
It’s time for that pot of tea again and I’ll enjoy it outdoors, who knows when we’ll get this kind of weather again 🙂 I will listen to my neighbors mowing their lawns and throw stick to my dogs.
Have a great day!
