I have hyacinths in my garden and they are now flowering. I planted them 4-5 years ago, on the way one or two have disappeared, but the remainders are still holding their ground.
This year our house front will be renovated and I hope that my plants in the garden survive. Our appartment block is “only” 18-20 years old, we moved into our appartment as first buyers 18 years ago almost. You would think that after so “few” years it would not be necessary to do anything, but it seems some of the original work was not up to the standard it should have been. I must admit the facade of the building needs a makeover, but my blinds are still good, and also my windows. They say that the roof should be refurbished – I am not an expert.
However, we are annoyed. Decisions are group decisions. discussed at various meetings so it has now been decided. We all have to pay for our new blinds but windows are voluntary and we are definitely not having new windows in our appartment.
The annoying thing is that when the workers arrive in May there will be an inconvenience. We will be without blinds for a while and who knows what the workman will do to ruin our garden with their workboots trampling around everywhere, although we have been told that any necessary gardening work will be paid for. However, you cannot replace what no longer exists.
Mr. Swiss told me today that there was a meeting yesterday about the whole thing. We are so disgusted that we no longer visit the meetings, because there are certain parties that know it all better, and we are the golden oldies that are no longer so golden as far as they are concerned. I did not even realise that yesterday was one of the famous meetings. We are a few parties that no longer visit the meetings, because we realised that we no longer have anything to say. All we know is that we can pay for the most expensive solution, which is really not necessary, and put up with the inconvenience. We have spoken to some colleagues who are also in the business and they just found it a joke when they heard what will be done. We really do not have to have our block gold plated.
However life goes on and I will take it as it comes and today is bathroom cleaning morning, so I will be busy for an hour or more with the housework. I will not be going places or seeing things, although I heard our Japanese cherry tree is flowering along the path, so that will be worth a photo. I might take a walk this afternoon, am still thinking about it. I would love to visit the cemetary again, have not been there this year, but it is a 5-10 minute walk further than the usual time and I am not sure if I can do. I have to walk back again, but today looks like a good day for me. Not all days are the same I notice.
Have a nice day everyone, and I will say goodbye with a photo of my white hyacinths. The strange thing is I do not remember planting this hyacinth, I have only one. It appeared for the first time last year. They do not usually plant themselves, so perhaps I did it in a forgetful moment which I have now and again.
