Good Morning

Jura 26.03 (2)

A morning greeting from the Jura mountains in my back yard from yesterday afternoon when I set off on a wheelie. It is the view from the street next to our estate. This morning we have plain blue skies and plenty of sunshine, but it’s a cold morning and needs time to warm up.

Horses 26.03.2019 (2)

I decided to wheel into town in my chair and noticed that the farm next door had all the horses grazing on the meadow. This meadow is actually behind the fence separating the local railway tracks as I wheel long, but there are some spaces in the fencing where I manage to get a photo of horse life. Behind the trees it slopes down to the river Aar and when I wheel back I see the meadow from the other side with more horses.

I eventually arrived into town. I now like to wheel along the outside path in the museum garden. I am keeping an eye on the magnolia trees and at last they are showing the shape of things to come, the buds are slowly opening.

Next week I am sure they will be showing themselves from their best side.

Town is a little boring at the moment as there is nothing happening. The circus visit has come and gone, but now a new tent is being erected. I saw a poster announcing the Fledermaus Symphony Concert by the Munich Symphony Orchestra so the tent is probably for the concert. I would love to go, but it is difficult in the evening for me. I would have to park the car somewhere and would have difficulty getting seated.

Pigeons 26.03 (3)

There were some kids feeding the pigeons in town and the pigeons were really making the most of the feast. Generally they fly off when I  approach, but not when there is free grub to be had.

Crows 26.03 (10)

The crows have taken over the trees along the banks of the river in town and are full of their nests. There will soon be the sound of squeaky caws and the patter of tiny crows feet. Our town is slowly awakening to the spring atmosphere and I am glad. I do not mind the Winter, but everything is now so fresh and green.

This afternoon there will be an excursion to the store and Mr. Swiss mentioned he will come with me. Our computer printer needs a new supply of ink cartridges which is apparently a too difficult task for me to buy, so he wants to deal with it himself. I only really need black ink for my lists of passwords. He is continuously printing stuff. He also had a problem with our TV. The guy we had closed his shop and now Mr. Swiss has found a new place. I do not bother with the TV, do not understand the intricate details of DVD and otherwise: just let me watch “Eastenders” on the BBC and I am happy. Mr. Swiss likes to watch his films. The guy arrived and sorted the various problems which were actually none. He confirmed that our TV was working perfectly. Sometimes golden oldies get a bit muddled especially when you have your own complicated system to understand. Now everyone is happy and we have a good company that will deal with any future problems.

Otherwise life goes on as usual. I have a bit of tidying up to do, not very much. It will be a nice quiet normal day and I have a shopping list to complete.

Have a good day everyone, be kind to your computers and remember they do not like bread crumbs on the keyboard which often happens to me when I eat breakfast in the morning. Of course I had a look in town for any new arrivals in the flower beds and was not disappointed. It is all so fresh and green and growing at the moment: the best time of the year.

  1. Beautiful. I even liked the photo of the pigeons, birds i’m normally not that keen on… 😉 And yes, it IS the best time of the year. I find it only lasts a few days at best (possibly a week) when the green of newly born leaves is just mesmerising. Enjoy your day!

  2. Televisions were so much easier in the old days when we only had three channels and each had a stonking great button on the television to press to select the channel it was a win win situation, not only was it fool proof but we got loads of exercise getting up out of the chair whenever we changed channels.

  3. I love the daffodils and crocus. Do you have Uber in your town, Pat. I use it occasionally and find it fast, easy and reliable. It would be a way to go to the evening concert.

  4. I’ll look forward to seeing the magnolia in flower. I love those. The daffodils are lovely too. I have to go to the post office to pick up a box of bulbs I ordered. I was hoping they would leave them on the front porch and save me a walk but never mind. The ones that are already in my garden beds are already popping out of the ground. Nobody told them that it’s too soon and they will be flowering when it is still winter. Another sign of our crazy climate.

    • That has also happened to me. I had some anenomes once that began to grow because of a mild winter. Then the snow and ice came, but they just stopped growing. They continued when the weather got better and gave a good show in Spring. Nature has its own ways

  5. Good Morning, although it is about 10:30 tonight. I will miss your next post too because I am on a more normal schedule for now.
    The magnolias here are finishing bloom. They were spectacular, but the heavy rain earlier today accelerated their detrioration.
