The seedy remains of the Sedum – where have all the bees gone?FOTD 30th October 2021: Sedum
Those fire bugs really have strange designs on their shell.RDP Saturday: Apparition
At least I managed to get some light into a dreary morning. Thanks to the nearby river we are still sitting in mist in the morning but I suppose it does have it good side with the Autumn effects. I will be glad when those misty mornings disappear and just a little sunlight would be appreciated.
And look what I saw creeping along this morning. I was quite surprised as I thought the slugs were now in the underground taking a rest after all the hard work they were doing munching my hosta leaves during the Summer. I think it was the bird food I scatter that attracted this one, as he/she was in the middle of the sparrow area.
Yesterday I had a wonderful surprise when this jay suddenly appeared in the garden. We do not often see them, just now and again, but it seems that the promise of food attracted him.
They are very attractive birds with their bright blue feathers on their wings.
I was quite busy yesterday organising my online banking and post office accounts.There is now something called a qr code for money traansfer on the payment slips. You can scan it and abracadabra everything is done without having to enter endless details. I have managed to do it, more by luck than judgement, with the post, but it was still a mystery for me and Mr. Swiss with the bank. Yesterday Mr. Swiss organised his bank account with the qr code with help from our man at the bank and added the app to his iPhone. I decided to do mine as well, and it worked, although I do not make so many payments with my bank account. I decided to also put my Post office account on my iPhone and with the help from a young man with a sympathetic voice on the phone, I did it. He even praised my ability to understand everything he was telling me to do, mentioning that many younger people have more problems. It was all very logical for me and I must say fun. It is now so much easier to do my payments on the phone, although I still use my computer now and again. I just have to be careful not to lose my phone. You are never too old to learn, Mr. Swiss with his 82 years and me with my 75 years. My next problem was that I discovered the printer connection to my Windows computer was not working, although my Apple computer was OK. Mr. Swiss has now fixed that, so everything functioning in the online world of the Angloswiss family, And now time to move on.
Dinner will be boiled beef today with potato and that is already cooking. All I have to do is add the vegetables later, so no stress. In the meanwhile I wish you all a good start to the week-end.
Looks like it is now time to begin to rake the leaves together.
