Daily Prompt: Froth


Apparently if you serve a glass of beer, it should have froth. I remember pouring my first glass of beer for dad. He was not very happy. I just emptied the beer into the glass, and he got froth, it was almost all froth and no beer.

I the had my first lesson on how to pour beer into a glass, english metho, from dad. You hold the glass on a slant, and as the beer enters from the bottle you gradually straighten the glass. This produces the perfect glass of beer: a third of bubbly froth and the rest beer.

My washing machine sometimes complains that there is too much froth. It is unpredictable, but sometimes I get a warning that the wash programme will take more time due to froth development, which means when I go down to my laundry room in the cellar the programme still has half an hour to run.

And then there is the froth development which mainly occurs amongst politicians, comparable again with a washing machine, the programme for delicate material. If you watch through the window of the machine, you see a basis of water at the bottom supporting a window of froth, bubbles. This often occurs when a political speech is being held. There is a small amount of words used to express the problem. but let us be honest, the rest is froth, air filled bubbles with nothing really worthwhile to listen to.

Daily Prompt: Froth

Good Morning

Misty Morning

Sun is shining, looks like a good day, but a little misty an very cold. Yesterday was not so friendly and in the early afternoon we had a rain shower. Actually it was not just rain, but seemed to be quite thick and fast, and I think there was a little snow mixed in, but nothing earth shattering: today’s mist is the result.

I was glad for a bit of humidity, especially as my lawn is being rejunivinated. The workmen last year with their renovations really trampeled everything to death.

In my garden inspection yesterday I was pleased to see that my potted hose chestnut had decided to make some new leaves.

It was a chestnut that I picked up from a tree in the vicinity. I put it in the garden to see if anything would happen and it began to grow. This was about 15 years ago. I decided to transfer it to a pot and with time I had to put it in the biggest pot I could find. It is now sitting on the porch and has become a tree. During the Winter it is leafless but now it is Spring and beginning to sprout new leaves. Last year it flowered for the first time. It was a long wait, but the gardener said it was probably because I was cutting it back every year, Last year we had scaffolding and builders with their dirt and mess, but it was like a tree flowering in Manhatten. It produced its first white flower When horse chestnut trees flower, they usually do it in abundance, although I only got one flower last year.

This year I am hoping for more flowers.  I also noticed my apple trees in the garden now have the beginnings of green shoots. It looks like it will be a green spring in my neck of the woods.

I was hugging the bed too long this morning so I have to get a move on. We have a shopping trip as the cupboard is not very full, not quite bare, but meat and veg are missing. This afternooon we also have a trip planned to the place where I got my wheelchair. They have a lot of stuff which is good for assistance if you are handicapped.  It is out in the country, so an opportunity for taking some photos.

Due to my long stay in bed this morning, I should now move on. Have a good day everyone and I hope the weather is with you.
