Swiss National day

1st August is approaching, now only 2 days and it will all be happening. The golden oldie senior home has been decorated.Each day when I visit there are more flags appearing.

And now we have a selection of Kantonal flags. I am sure there will be some golden oldie celebrations, but am not sure how. On Monday I will know upon my visit. Today was a short visit due to rain. The heat wave days are no longer, although the sun still shines.

A Murder of Crows

The sky began to darken yesterday evening and then they began to arrive slowly, each one choosing its own perch.

They began to gather. Was it the storm clouds that were an attraction?

They were everywhere.

But soon they were everywhere, all nicely perched with a safety space in between. Some crows were still hovering and searching for a place. They were now occupying two levels.

The sky was getting darker, but they continued. Rumour had it that Alfred Hitchcock’s film was showing on the television the evening before. Suddenly it was silent, no squarks or chatter, they were patiently waiting.

And then the storm arrived. It was a signal to return to the trees, no respecting crow wants to go home with wet feathers. And then the sky decided to participate in the event..

Yes, it was an interesting evening yesterday.
