Good Morning


Nothing spectacular this morning above our heads. It rained a little during the night and we are left with grey skies this morning, not such a good start to the Summer, but it can only get better it seems. Yesterday was week-end shopping day. I had to make a quick excursion to the shop in shop at the store mall to the telephone department. My iPhone fell onto the stone surface of the garden yesterday leaving a very much cracked bulletproof surface glass which I had to renew. Luckily I pay for this extra on my mobile phone. Although it is an expensive commodity, 39 Swiss Francs, it is worth paying for the extra protection as it was only this that broke and not the telephone. The guy in the shop removed the old glass and fixed on the new one. I think I have replaced it twice since having this phone, but am now more careful. I transport everything in my walker which goes everywhere with me (iPad, Kindle, purse and iPhone), but am now putting my phone in the bag compartment. I usually just place it on the sitting surface (which I never really used to sit) and it can easily fall off. The golden oldie problems of the modern cyber age.


My early morning walk in the garden discovered that now my hostas are flowering and even the snails have discovered this which I am not so happy about. However snails with houses are always better that slugs without. The are far more pretty.


We are really getting into the summer way of life now, and my yellow loosestrife is also in full bloom. I believe in some places they are regarded more as an invader, but mine keep themselves in the same place, although I must admit they have expanded over the years.

I noticed yesterday that my car is getting thirsty for gas. I got this car, my little Skoda Clever, at the end of last year with a full tank. Since then I have only had to tank up once some time in March and now I will again the next week. I might even tank up tomorrow as the local supermarket parking lot will be empty and I will have more time. It is Sunday and the store is closed. I know this is a normal process for most of us, but I am still getting used to it. In the earlier days you paid at the desk, but today there is no longer a desk. It is all machine operated and according to the credit card you have it works differently. I now have a special card for gas from the supermarket, meaning that I also get double points adding to my monthly dividend. I am a computer freak basically, but I always get confused with these new systems until I have used it regularly.


In the meanwhile back to the garden to see that my rocket ligularia is also now beginning to flower. I got this one many years ago from a colleague. He was probably glad to see the back of it as it is also one of the indestructibles, but it returns regularly every year so I do not have a lot of work with it.

And now to move on with the daily rituals. No. 1 son has already left on his excursion to Zürich and it is just me and Mr. Swiss alone at home. I might go somewhere this afternoon for a few photos, although it looks a bit dull and rainy outside.

Nothing really exiting is happening in our part of the world, which is perhaps positive. The Trump in the Stats is looking for a war with Iran but seems to be having second thoughts which I hope. I would trust that maniac to drop a bomb on that country, irregardless of what could happen to the surrounding countries.

So no politics, let us now spoil the week-end. Have a good day everyone, see you around and let us make the most of it.

  1. It looks beautiful there! We were supposed to have two nice days and instead, got two day — one ALL rain and the other half rain. But the daylilies are in bud and should bloom very soon and some other kind of flower has moved into the garden. NO idea where it has come from. Maybe the birds dropped seeds? We don’t have much in the way of flowers yet because there has been so little sun, but maybe we’ll get some this week. Meanwhile, your garden looks wonderful. I wish mine even looked like a garden!


    • I was taking a trip through the local cemetery yesterday and the first day lilies are open. They have beds of them there. It did not rain here, but a grey sky until the afternoon when the sun arrived. I must say that I have never had such a wonderful garden like this year. It is the first summer after the new planting and everything is developing well
