Our lilac tree has flowersFOTD 24th April 2022: Lilac
I had a nice collection of scent/perfume. I would travel once a year to London to visit my dad and of course enjoyed the advantage of getting my duty free scent.They sold it in little bottles so I always had quite a range to choose from. The problem was that I never really bothered to wear it. I still have some now from those days.
And now living out in the country, we are confronted regularly with the natural scents of the land.FOWC with Fandango: Scent
You might think a typical cow. Today it is no longer so typical as the horn buds are removed from the baby cows before they begin to grow, as some farmers find they could be dangerous. Now and again a nice farmer allows the horns to grow.
Of course if you happen to be a bull, then there is no question about it. You keep your horns.RDP Sunday: Horn
I did not even bother to go outside to take this photo, but did it through the window. Why? Because it has been raining all afternoon. It is cold outside and miserable and with no possibility to stay dry if I go anywhere. I am in lock down at home. One advantage is that you can sleep better in such weather.
This guy seemed to be quite happy in this weather and was looking for a nice comfortable place to stay.
Admittedly it was not the best looking worm I had seen, but I am sure his/her mother loved it. I am still trying to find which end is the head.
So what do you do with such an afternoon. I discovered a lot of my old CD’s this week and thought it would be a good idea to transfer the music to my computer. I had a look in Internet to see how it works, and it seem it is all done with the windows media player so no problem. I found the Windows media player, followed the instructions and uploaded a CD, what could be more difficult. My next step was to transfer it all to a hard disc as I did not want to exhaust the memory on my computer. Easier said than done, although I managed to transfer one CD to the hard disc. However, it would not accept more. The windows media player is OK, but I had problems finding the various guidelines on he screen and try as I did it remained with just one CD. I eventually gave up after 2 hours and decided I needed help from a human being. At least I had some excitement this afternoon.
This little guy also appeared in my apartment this week, and he was quite big. I decided it was a kingsized wasp although I had my doubts whether it could be a hornet. He seemed to be exhausted and so I had the opportunity for a photo.
And that was my exciting day – wet, wet, wet. Tomorrow will probably not be much better. Luckily I have enough food to survive until the weather improves. I hope your day was better.
