Good morning again, I am back this morning after yesterday’s misery of being cut off from the internet world and all the trimmings. I have a bit of a different timetable this week in any case. Since No. 1 son is away on holiday, we have far too much bread. Mr. Swiss and I are not big bread eaters, just breakfast and tea and more than 1-2 slices for each of us are enough. We have now changed to the bread that you can bake in the oven according to how you want it, so I am spoiling myself with croissants for breakfast. I love them, but there are disadvantages. They are nice and hot from the oven and when you eat them they tend to make flakes everywhere. I will not even begin to tell you about the jam splodges. I just had to spend a few minutes cleaning up the mess on the table, my keyboards and hunting the flies away. Eating by an open window door in the kitchen is not very advisable “Grubs up” says one fly to another and they are already there.
Now I have organised myself and hope for smooth runnings apart from the odd fly that has not yet given up.
This year really seems to be developing into a super year for the garden. I have never seen so many flowers on my hibiscus since it began to grow from a seed. They only flower for a day, but the next day there are just as many to take their place. It also has disadvantages I read this morning in the local newspaper online. It seems that we have a record harvest of fruit and vegetable and the farmers have so much it is no longer worth their while. The prices they get for their harvest are not profitable enough. Of course they should sell it cheaper for the public, but then the farmers are out of pocket. It seems we grow food not to feed the people, but to make sure everyone earns enough money. I dread to think of what will probably be thrown away.
We have a record harvest of cherries in Switzerland. The cherry trees usually suffer from hail storms and weather problems, but this year our cherries are bigger and better than ever.
Due to heatwave weather yesterday and catching up on stuff I missed on internet, I did not go anywhere or do very much. I decided it was now time to sort my 30,000 photos in my Flickr photo programme. They are organised in various sections, but there are ways and means to find them quicker with tags. Doing it on the iPad is quite easy as I can relax in a chair.
It looks like it will be a good day today. When there a few fluffy clouds around in the morning, we usually get a light breeze to accompany them so I might venture a tour in my wheelchair this afternoon, with camera of course. There is nothing planned otherwise, just taking it easy. I hope you all can also take it easy and enjoy the day as much as possible.
