Not something I often see here.
Not something I often see here.
A wasp is never finished with a box of grapes until they have all been sampled.
I am still not sure what these figures are, but someone let their imagination run wild when they made them.
What could be better than breakfast outside on the porch in the morning, with a computer.
Living in a Swiss village with the River Aare running though it, we do not have a shortage of bridges. Now and again they are repaired. One of the main traffic bridges was even rebuilt some years ago, the new construction being built next to the old one. It was quite an easy task to just remove the old bridge afteerwards. Here is a somewhat different photo of this bridge, catching the reflections of the sunlight on the concrete support.
I so love my mornings in Summer when I can sit outside on the patio and enjoy the surroundings.
Even the table is a welcoming site, not only for my breakfast and computer, but the orchids and amaryllis that are now blooming. The problem is that they are all flowering at once and space is getting scarce. There is still an orchid waiting on another table but the buds are not yet open. It has been a quiet week-end up to now, with yesterday’s holiday, but I do not really mind. I now have things more or less under control and the shopping is no longer such a stress.
Yesterday I went for a short journey via the town cemetery to the castle. I also pass by the entrance to the village cemetery I do not often enter as it is a little cramped for my scooter and not very comfortable driving over the ground.
This time the chickens had not invaded the town cemetery as the last time. I think they have now moved the mobile chicken run to another place as it was getting a little troublesome with their great escape. Mr. Swiss said it is probably not advisable to have chickens running around the graves, some people could get annoyed finding their departed with chickens resting on their resting places. It certainly would not bother me, although I will not have a resting place anywhere, although a few chickens moving in would not bother me.
I often wheel through the local farm where the chickens live with some horses and this morning I saw that they now also have a page in Facebook Natürlich Flury showing the chickens and family and the natural products that can be bought, of course many eggs. It is written in German but mentions amongst other items that the chickens live in a group from approximately 250 hens with 3-5 roosters. The chicken run is mobile and is regularly moved to enable a fresh supply of grass for the hens. I naturally gave the farm page a like and will now endeavour to visit when I need fresh eggs.
Otherwise it was a lazy Saturday and there was just one cow helping itself to some grass on the field. I think it was too hot for the others.
I was only on my way for an hour but just wanted to get out and enjoy the fresh air. The heat is slowly returning again. I noticed that the Corona cases in our area are on the increase, not that it is cause for panic, but a little disappointing. The schools are now open and two cases were found in our local gymnasium (high school), a teacher and a pupil, causing a complete class to have to go into isolation for a while. Our Kanton was always in the minority of cases, but it is now increasing. More reason to be very careful when going places.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain!
