Have You ever seen a Cuckoo bird?
Sune seems to have more than enough when it comes to energy today. All the other dogs are asleep somewhere in the cottage but he is outside playing with his favorite toy, a knot. Once in a while he comes in and wants me to throw it so he can fetch it and keep on playing with it 🙂 He doesn’t care if the others don’t want to play and is just as happy playing by himself. He’s always happy no matter what 🙂
We have at least four Cuckoo birds here now and today finally I managed to capture one with my camera but I had to edit them a lot otherwise they would just show a black spot against the very bright sky 🙂 They are very shy and sometimes when one see them in the sky they look like falcons. They say Cuckoo birds are becoming rare but it’s hard to believe here since they can be heard everywhere 🙂
I got a text message today telling me that the plants I’ve ordered had arrived at the post office in Gudhem. I had ordered two hardy Kiwi since the ones I planted last years seems to have died and I also ordered a fig tree, I just don’t know why because I know how it will end. It will grow fine and become big and then I get tired of carrying it to and from the cool cellar and then I plant it in the garden and then it’ll die 🙂 It might perhaps survive in the greenhouse when that is built. I’ll buy more stuff for that greenhouse tomorrow. I’m never quick when I do my projects but I do finish them 🙂
The kitchen door is open and it has been almost summer warm here, the morning was cold and foggy though and I am gad I did cover the plants I’ve placed outside because the temperature dropped to almost 0C (32F). The sky is clear today as well so I better cover them tonight too just in case. I rarely sow Morning glories but I’ve made an exception this year, It’s the hardiest species so it will most likely survive above ground the first frost night in the autumn and if I cover the ground with lots of soil and leafs in autumn it might even survive the winter here, most likely not but perhaps.
It’s time for a pot of tea and something to eat. After that it’s time to go through the soil in the pots with my new plants so they don’t bring unwanted guests like the Spanish forest slug. I’m not sure if it’s worth it any longer since I doubt my newest neighbour bothered to check the plants he brought home a few weeks ago. The Spanish forest slug is something one really, really don’t want around since it eats everything and it doesn’t have any natural predators in this country.
Have a great day!
