The morning sky, but nothing to worry about. It looks a bit cloudy, but that is towards the North and by the time the clouds cross the Jura they will disperse. According to the news, today will be a sunny one with warmer temperatures and I suppose I should give myself a push and go for a wheelie this afternoon in my chair into town. I have been on lock down this week, watching my new garden develop. It is not really growing yet, but I noticed the plants we have for a starter are now picking up and holding up their heads.
Especially the herbs. The mushroom is not real of course. I bought it some time ago and now at last it has a place, although Mr. Swiss is not so keen on that sort of thing. He finds it a bit kitchy, but he is Swiss. We Brits are more adventurous in that direction. Wait until next Summer when my frog, owl and caterpillar arrive again in the garden. Perhaps I might find something to add to it. I always wanted a dragon.
Today I will cut the first stalks of my savoury (to be seen on the left only half in the photo). We call it “bean herb” and always cook it together with green beans which are now season. I never knew it in England, but the dictionary tells me it is known as savoury. It is a very good herb. I never had success, but there are two kinds. You can plant the annual from seeds, but there is a perennial which arrives every year and that is the one I now have. So tody’s lunch will be steak, beans and fried potatoes, the little ones. Something quick that does not need so much preparation.
I am getting a little over cautious with this new garden thing. The gardener laughed when I asked if she thought I could already cut some herbs and use it for cooking. She found it is there to be used, just not cut away all the stalks, but it will grow again.
I am now thinking about shifting my bird house into the garden for the Winter, although it looks more like late summer outside at the moment. The seasons are changing, perhaps I can grow some pineapples next Spring.
And now to move on like doing some tidying in the apartment.
My two orchids are also growing well in the kitchen. I have had them for at least 2 months and they still have their flowers thanks to my care. They were in the living room, but Mr. Swiss closes the blinds during the day because of the sun glaring through the window, and they do need light and air to survive, so I have them in the kitchen.
Have a good Sunday everyone or sleep well those in the countries when the sun is not shining at the moment. I am off with the vacuum cleaner and mop to do my good deeds for the day, just an hour, the rest is extra.
