I think these birds are drawn to the food in the bird feeders.FOWC with Fandango: Drawn
RDP Wenesday: Cryogenic
Cryogenic or not it all survives
I see the proof in my plant archives
If it snows in the Winter the snowdrops appear
And then follow the crocus
They have nothing to fear
Through cold and ice
They show a brave face
Nothing stops nature’s race
We had a break in our nice warm spring weather today. It rained this morning and temperatures dropped. I am back to wearing my Winter jacket instead of the knitted one. The sky was full of clouds, but nevertheless I decided to escape. I did not know whether to go into town or stay near the village. Eventually I decided a visit to Mr. Swiss for an hour and afterwards a tour through the cemetry and past the castle on my way home. That plan worked quite well and I took this photo of our village church up on its hill whilst wheeling through. It is a catholic church as our Kanton is mainly catholic.
As I said the clouds were hanging in the sky, but the rain stayed away during the afternoon and only returned this evening. It is much colder now, but nature is still maintaining its progress and the plants are surviving. There was a talk of snow on the radio, but everything is possible.
In met some geese on my travels from the farm. You ever meet one goose alone, but there is always a group of them.
It was the first time I had been in the castle grounds since last year.
I noticed they had now cleared three lots where there used to be graves in the cemetry
. In Switzerland time is limited to have a grave, about 30 years. If you want to keep the grave you have to buy the land and that can get quite expensive.
I eventually left the cemetry and went on my way home. I had the evening meal to cook for No. 1 son and myself and had to upload my photos. I also wanted to order a few items online for deliver from my store. I go shopping to the store myself more now when the weather behaves.
And that was my day. Here is a photo of a view from the top of the hill where the castle is. You can see our local town of Solothurn in the distance. Have a good day everyone.
