And another Spring morning dawns on Feldbrunnen in the Kanton of Solothurn in Switzerland.
The sun is shining and I can hear the merry sound of the neighbour as he pours water onto his new lawn. I should be doing the same today. I think the last time it rained was at least a week ago, although it seems tomorrow there will be a shower. I noticed that my lawn is showing some yellow patches, although Mr. Swiss assured me they have been there for some time.
As you can see from the photo, my anemones are flowering in competition with each other. I created a new flower bed last Autumn, clearing away the Vinca, the little blue flower covering plants, which had decided to slowly take over the complete garden. I planted various spring bulbs and decided on anemones. I was surprised when the first leaves began to appear already in December. It was a mild Winter, but I was worried that they would die of frostbite before they had a chance to survive. Luckily it was a milder Winter than usual and the anemones maintained their leaf status. As soon as the warmer weather arrived the first buds appeared and now they are all flowering.
Today is bathroom cleaning morning, so I will be busy. I think of all rooms to clean, it is the most annoying. Too many tiles to wipe over, but why cry about spilt milk, I really only need 45 minutes. I like to time my cleaning programme, as I then know it eventually comes to an end.
And now to wipe the jam from my keyboard and table. I used to eat breakfast cereal, with the disadvantage that my computer keyboard had the milk stain effects and it resembled a Picasso creation. Since I eat bread and jam for breakfast, my fingers tend to stick to the keys and my mouse has a sticky base, although nothing that a damp cloth can remove.
These are the words of the day, keep safe, and remember even a computer wants to look clean and shiny, otherwise it feels neglected.
