This has been sitting in my garden for many years. I bought it some years ago and planted it, not really knowing what it was. It has now developed quite well and makes these bushes of flowers every year.FOTD 27th June 2022: European Smoke Tree
I had to wait to cross the road to visit Mr. Swiss as the railway barriers were down as a train was approaching – a good opportunity for a photo towards our town. A lady cyclist also had to wait, but she found that every time she wanted to cross the road the train was coming. They have a half hour schedule during the week, so chances are many to get stuck.
Today was a normal weather day: no high temperatures and no rain. Mr. Swiss spent the afternoon in the garden of his golden oldie home, which could have been quite boring.
And then the cook appeared from the kitchen with the vegetable peelings.This was a signal for all chickens and rabbits and in a split second they were there. It was then dinner for all, after all you cannot just live on seeds and dry food, now and again they deserve something more interesting. If you are a rabbit or a bird, it makes no difference: food speaks all languages.
This rabbit decide to take a closer look, no mountain could keep her away. They only have female rabbits as otherwise they would soon be overrun with rabbits everywhere.
There was also a rabbit gathering
as well as chicken conversations. I noticed that the animals were more in action today. They also like to retire in the shade when there is a heat wave.
Although this chicken decided to just observe the situation. Eventually I made my way home. I had to get the evening meal ready for my son and I and wanted to upload my photos.
And that was today’s excitement, just a typical Monday, but who needs a daily excitement. Sometimes it is good to have some peace and quiet and relaxation time. I hope your week got to a good start.
