Growing wild in townFOTD 27th March 2022: Primroses
I have been living here almost 30 years now and have watched buildings rise from the ground to complete our estate. Now, after many years, the last building is being stamped out of the earth. Now I can see what will be disappearing from our garden view. The forest at the end of the estate will be reduced to half of what we have seen up to now. Perhaps not so tragic, we can still see the tree tops, but it will no longer be the same. I wonder what our murder of crows will make of it.FOWC with Fandango: Irascible
Suddenly our Clock Tower has been encased in scaffolding and screens. It seems that after the few hundred years it has existed things are getting a little weak in the bricks and morter end even the clock needs a few repairs. I suppose nothing lasts for ever.RDP Sunday: Impetus
At last Spring has arrived with all the trimmings. One disadvantage is that I seem to have lost 60 minutes and am still trying to find them. It is most annoying. I heard a rumour that they take a holiday during the Summer and only return in Autumn. Anyhow after leaving Mr. Swiss this afternoon I took the path home on my scooter past the local castle Waldegg which is next to his golden oldie refuge. I noticed they have moved the mobile chicken homes away from the path. I think they were getting too adventurous and roaming into places which were not so good.
In met this guy and I think he was searching for the hens. He was calling at the top of his voice. I suppose when you have over 200 wives you do feel a bit lonely when they disappear.
Otherwise I spent the day cooking lunch, tidying up and organising some paperwork. I also at last emptied the side shelves of the wardrobe in the spare room of unwanted junk and am now faced with the problem of what to put on them. I also ordered my groceries for the week, so I am all set to go. I must say it is now pleasant in the evening that it no longer gets so dark so early.
Everything is alive again and they had even now filled the pond next to the museum in town and switched on the fountains.
Now I am left with my evening. I think it must be at least 1-2 weeks since I even switched on the TV. Mr. Swiss had a TV in his room and never used it. Funny how when you get older these things are no longer so interesting. I prefer doing something on my computer listening to music or just reading a book.
And now to make something to eat for an evening snack. I think I will do something with a fried egg and cheese. It seems to me since I have a new timetable I am slowly becoming more a vegetarian, although not a real believer. My cats were never interested in a non-meat diet.
I wish you all a good rest of the week-end.
According to my plant identifier these are Corydalis, but whatever. They are flowering everywhere at the moment.FOTD 26th March 2022: Corydalis
