Looks like it is an allium year this year. Their flowers are everywhere in the garden.FOTD 10th June 2021: Allium
Andante is at a walking pace, but this slug is more adagio – slow with great expression. I think he did not want to harm the flower.RDP Thursday: Andante
Something completely different, we have a misty morning. I have not seen one for a long while. We can blame it on the various rain showers we have had in the last couple of days and the warm weather. This morning we are left with the result, a grey sky and mist, but even that has its charm when you see the colours of the flowers and meadow carving their way through. I am convinced that today will be a nice sunny one eventually and warm. At least that is what the weather forecast says. I have not been anywhere since last week on Tuesday and seem to be becoming hermit. I was going into town today, Mr. Swiss needs cigarettes, but even that is not necessary. He still has enough until the week-end and so I have postposed my journey until tomorrow. I was busy during the past week organising my garden cupboard and now I am quite proud that it has been done and the spiders in the cupboard can breathe fresh air again. You can clear a lot, but the spiders remain. They have a nice comfortable place to spin their webs and have their private conversations. They have an outside entrance to the garden if they want to go hunting or make the most of the weather and they do not bother me. They scuttle away when I open the door to the cupboard.
My little bird is still paying the regular visits outside. He seems to be making himself at home.
He likes to sit on my raised bed and sometimes goes for an examination of the plant life in the bed, often having a peck around in the earth, probably searching for livestock. Perhaps he is on the search for food for the hantchlings in the next, although they are probably now getting bigger and can find their own food. I have actually never seen a sparrow nest.
Now and again he takes a peck at the parsley I have growing outside in a pot.
This morning I was busy stripping my bed and recovering the duvet and cushion. I will do the remainder later. Mr. Swiss is still hugging his bed and there is really no rush. It is one of those necessary jobs you have to do, but not exactly an enjoyable one. Mr. Swiss has now arisen and informed that he has stripped his bed. It looks like I am on my way to completing the job, but first of all I want to digest my breakfast and do a few jobs in the apartment.
I will now move on and wish everyone a good day.
