I hope my hedge dies when they dig here.
The weather isn’t remotely as sunny as they said it should be but it is warm and it doesn’t rain so I guess I shouldn’t complain. It was however very sunny when we went out for our morning walk so before we went away I took out all the annuals and placed them in shade to get used to real daylight and not the kind they get from behind a window. It was going to be warm so I didn’t care that it was a bit chilly. Suddenly clouds covered the sky and an icy wind started to blow, I hope they didn’t get any damages because of that. They are still alive so I think they are ok.
I have an old dead sea buckthorn in my garden and it’s so thorny that I have let it stand there for quite some time. The tree is much rot resistant than I thought and it stands just as good as it did alive, so today I planted a climbing honeysuckle (woodbine) beside it, I mean if it won’t fall down it can still at least look beautiful when the honeysuckle climbs up in it 🙂 My neighbor started talking to me while I was cleaning up after the dogs about the water and sewer. I don’t know why all people ask me about it since I won’t get it myself but they do 🙂 I had very little new to add more than that they have started digging in the village now. Some places they’ll dig is just too swampy still so now they work from the end of the line towards those places instead.
Not long after that the ones digging this and the chairman of the water and sewer association came by, finally they had realised the same thing that my neighbor and I had long ago that they might just as well dig just outside our properties instead of digging in a cow pasture that is rather swampy. I told them that I wouldn’t mind if I had to jump a ditch for a day or two because it will pass just outside my gate. I also said that they could dig up my entire lilac hedge if they wanted to because I don’t like it 🙂 🙂 🙂 So they might actually do that with a bit of luck 🙂 I need to sign a firm that they are allowed to though so I’ll do that as soon as possible. They will of course repair anything they might destroy while digging, like electric cables and so on. I’m so hoping my hedge will be removed!
They will also tell me in advance when they’ll turn up because I don’t want my dogs to be in the dog yard while they are digging, that would scare all of them, except for Sune, to death. Sune however would love it, the noisier a machine is the better. I always say that if he had been a human boy he would run to them and ask if he could sit in the digger or what ever machine it is and he would start talking horse power and cylinders with them 🙂 🙂 🙂
One of the dogs has figured out how to open the kitchen door, the handle on that door works opposite a normal handle so it has to be pushed upwards to open up. Not a good thing because I normally never lock that door if I’ll leave the dogs for s short while, now I have to 🙂 I have also mowed my lawn today and it was much easier than I thought it would be considering it was very long and also rather wet. The forest flies have just started flying around now, I noticed that while mowing. They don’t bit, just annoy but so far only a few were around. I’m pretty sure I’ll need my mosquito hat next week or they’ll drive me insane.
It’s time for a pot of tea and after that I think we’ll have a walk to the bog. It’s hard to walk by the fields since the castle owner has cut of many roads with wire gates, the wires are easy enough to hook off but the hard part is to walk four panicking dogs passed lots of curious cows or as it was this morning bulls.
Have a great day!
