Every day a surprise in the garden. Today I spotted something blue and discovered that the first grape hyacinth had appeared. They are a remainder of my old garden. When the gardener dug it up the old bulbs remained and were distributed and return again every year. Isn’t nature wonderful?FOTD 31st March 2021: Grape Hyacinths

RDP Wednesday: Music
Music accompanies me throughout my life. Soon the various musicians will be visiting our town and playing in the streets. It is our background music and I am there with the camera to capture it all. I just wish I could capture the sounds as well, but my camera would then be filled with videos.
Mr. Swiss is a musician, played drums with various jazz formations now and again. I learnt piano for about 10 years at school. As I am writing this piece I am wearing my ear pods and am listening to music (generally classical – more soothing and nice to relax to)
Without music life would be boring for me.RDP Wednesday: Music
Another brilliant sunrise this morning, it could almost be Summer, although it is still Spring and I do not trust it entirely. Apparently it will get a little cooler for the Easter week-end, but I have no big plans about going places and seeing things. There is enough stress lasting the whole year.
And yes, I had my second and final Covid vaccination yesterday afternoon. The photo is from the exist where you have to wait 15 minutes before leaving. I decided there was a queue waiting and would need 5 minutes to arrive at the front, so saved on my 15 minutes. I felt a big dizzy afterwards, but I that probably did not have anything to do with the actual vaccination. I am just not used to be directed to a chair, then to the doc for the jab and visiting various stations on the way to show my documents. It gets all a little confusing for a golden oldie, especially when you do it all with the help of a walker and have trouble sitting in the right places. You just get a little wobbly on your feet. Luckily my neighbour took me there and brought me home in his car for which I was very thankful. When I arrived home I collapsed onto the bed, but I just had to find my feet again. Otherwise I did not have a headache, had no signs of fatigue and no strange marks on my body. The arm hurt just a little but that disappeared within a few minutes. It is now the next morning and I still feel no ill effects from the whole thing. I must just be one of the lucky ones.
I had the Pfizer BioNTech vaccination which works very well I believe with its 90% protection against everything. I am now so glad that I have had it done and hope for the best. I will still wear my mask when necessary and keep a distance. You can never be too careful, but I am glad to have it all behind me.
And now back to normal life.
Bird life continues in my back garden and the crows are now regular visitors, gathering the goodies. They are really the jugglers of food.
This little blue tit also arrived continuing to scoop out the goodies in the coconut shell.
Otherwise the day continued as normal. I was so glad after my ordeal at the vaccination centre. I had actually decided to relax and do nothing but I discovered I felt so good I could work on a few photos and blog a little.
I had one of my better TV evenings and watched one of those transformer films called Bumble bee. This time it was the good transformer that turned into a yellow Volkswagen, adopted and found by a teenage girl. Of course they managed to save the world from the bad transformers and it was a happy ending as usual. I got so interested I eventually only hit the bed only at midnight, but for me it was worth it. I am a victim for such films.
Today I will stay at home I think and take it easy. Have a good day everyone and keep safe and away from the others. Covid can be everywhere. I discovered this morning that Spring is really catching up on us all and from a distance I saw that our Japanese cherry tree is not thinking about opening its buds.
