It is a good morning when you can begin the day with something to eat, a cup of tea and of course a computer. Since the last up date on my microsoft computer they rewarded me with various wonderful photos of landmarks around the world before I enter the internet world. Note my plant on the table, a kalenchoe complete with over pot. It was a larger example as the normal and quite reasonable in price. Imagine my amazement when I saw that they had been reduced in price last week. The were still looking good in the store and cost only a quarter of the original price. I decided to take advantage of the special offer and now have two. I put the the new one in the living room together with the others.
I just love these kalanchoe. They are reasonable in price and flower for a long while. Afterwards you can throw them or keep them as I do. The plant on the right has no flowers, but I have had it for at least a year and it is still growing. Now and again it makes a couple of flowers. Just water them once every 1-2 weeks with a little bit of fertiliser and forget them.
Yesterday I went nowhere and stayed at home. The weather was great, but I just felt too tired. With three different prompt sites now in WordPress, I have enough choice, although I do not manage more than one a day and neither does my cat Tabby, who does her own daily prompt, from a cat’s eye view of course.
In these summer days we now have the wonderful sunsets in the evening. We thought there might be another storm brewing and there were some dark clouds in between, but the rains stayed away, although it did get quite cool in the evening. I had one of those TV evenings for a change. I was reading but noticed my eyes slowly closing and awoke half an hour later, deciding it was time to retire. I am hoping for more action today.
My next task is to cook a Sunday roast pork. Mr. Swiss mentioned I have not done a roast for some time, and I like to cook it slow in the oven. It is now 9.00 a.m. so it should be ready for midday lunch, I hope. It is going to be a day of 30° temperatures so summer is here.
And now my calla is flowering, I have had the plant for at least 10 years and it never disappoints when I return it to the garden after the winter in the cellar. My climbing roses are also back again. I had to do some precarious organising yesterday with a support as they were hanging towards the floor and their blossoms got lost somewhere in the background.
Enjoy your Sunday, take it easy and be kind to your computers, you may need them.
