Pee protection fence.
We’re having the most wonderful day here, the sun is shining, a breeze is blowing and it’s around 20C (68F). This is presummer when it is as best. We call this period presummer because it isn’t really spring any more but it isn’t summer either. Well we’ve had summer for some days to be honest but I don’t count that since it was way too early. We had it both in April and these few days before the thunderstorm. Summer starts sometime in June to me.
The morning felt a bit chilly though and the wind was quite strong, at least until we reached the forest. Then the wind died and it got much warmer, especially since I wore a fleece jacket. No wind invites mosquitoes and there were lots of them now after all this heat and rain. Thankfully their bites only itch now in the beginning, soon I’ll be so bitten that I’ll get immune to the itching🙂 This was probably the last time we went up the creek for a while since the forest flies soon will drive me insane🙂 The tics love it there too so that’s another reason to avoid it.
I’ve done lots today since I could do nothing yesterday. I vacuumed the floors and then I scrubbed them too. After that I mowed the lawn and met my neighbor while he was walking his lamb🙂 They have a lamb that wasn’t accepted by its mother so they have hand fed it since it was born. It’s amazing how cute little lambs are.especially when they behave like puppies and have no fear of meeting new people🙂 Too bad I didn’t have any camera with me. He tried to eat my fingers because they smelled like freshly cut grass, the grass was so wet this morning that it clogged the mower and I had to remove it by hand.
I’ve planted some morning glories too, two by the tree Orvar peed to death, one by the fence around the vegetable garden and one that I can’t remember where I planted it🙂 Morning glories aren’t hardy enough to survive a winter here so there’s no risk that they’ll be a weed. Too bad because I do like them🙂 The peach tree had stood its time in quarantine so I planted it yesterday and today I made a pee protection fence around it🙂 Orvar will most likely aim at that instead of my peach tree. I have also done my laundry so now it’s hanging in my patio to dry in the wind.
I still have some plants that I need to find the right place for but that can wait until tomorrow. My tomato plants are growing fine by my kitchen window and it’s too early to bring them outside yet, we still have what we call the iron night ahead of us. Those days are the last ones we can expect heavy frost and they usually come the first week in June. They might not come though, they didn’t last year.
It’s time for a pot of tea and then some rest. Perhaps I’ll go outside to watch when the hornets chew off tree from old logs I have to use when they build their nest. They are very peaceful and usually don’t mind me coming very close to take some photos of them🙂
