RDP Saturday: The Old Shed

In a country as Switzerland you have to search for your old sheds, but here and there you might find one. Every stone and brick used to build has to have planning permission. This old shed stands on the ground in front of our village church next to a house which probably belongs to the church. Since I have lived in the village, about 22 years, this old shed has not changed and looks as it always did.

It probably has a purpose, but I have no idea what purpose. Perhaps there is a secret entrance below the floor boards that lead to the lesser known parts of the church. Perhaps the tree in front of the shed is a Whomping Willow to be found in the Harry Potter books and attacked anyone that approaches the shed.

RDP Saturday: The Old Shed

Good Morning

Yesterday evening I heard the sound of thunder. I then saw that there was a storm warning on my weather app in our area and our little village of Feldbrunnen was mentioned as one of the areas affected. I did a quick mental check of what was out in the garden that could be affected, but decided there was no great cause for alarm. The thunder stopped and when I went to bed I could hear the soothing sound of raindrops outside and decided it was perhaps time for the garden to have another soak. This morning we have cloudy skies, just one big grey cloud covering everything, but no problem. Sometimes it is good to have a weather change. Temperatures have dropped, but no great threat and I am sure in a day or two everything will be back to how it should be at this time of the year.

The sunny warm weather had brought the bees out and coupled with my sedum plants which are now flowering, they were living up to their reputation of being busy bees and flying to every open flower they found for their pollen supplies. Isn’t it wonderful to be able to see nature in action.

I was also in action for an hour yesterday afternoon progressing on organising my garden cupboard. It is really amazing what you collect for rubbish but I am now getting it all in grip. I just have to dispose of two lawn mowers and my garden tools. My gardener might be able to dispose of the tools. I have a rake, a shovel and various metal supports for plants. In my younger days of mobility I planted tomatoes and beans, as well as strawberries and diligently harvested everything, but that was 20 years ago. Now those days are gone but I am left with the equipment.

I had one of my regular visitors yesterday, but Roschti was just passing through having a look to see if there was anything worth examining closer.

Today I will be cleaning up the cushions on the chairs on the patio. Tomorrow I will be having a visit from my No. 2 son and his family with the two grandhildren. The will be bringing new chairs for our patio table as the chairs I have are becoming a dangerous trap. They are no longer as solid as they were, and my daughter in law found good replacements. They will take the old chairs with them as she has a good possibility of disposing of them. I am glad as I really do not want to collect more unwanted articles. I am not sure if I will be around tomorrow as I will have a lunch to cook and some catching up to do with my extended family who I do not see so much.

I am now off to deal with the daily chores. Take care everyone.
