The flowers made my rainbow for me.

The beginning of a garden always has surprises. I have had my garden for 20 years and learnt a lot, but it starts with a seed that germinates. Often other unwanted plants germinate as well, but some can be interesting.
And then you can get adventurous and decide to grow a avocado tree (in Switzerland?). Of course you keep it indoors and might even be successful.
I would not really recommend it. Your avocado might give up, or even get attacked by some unknown invader in the pot. Many are the avocado trees I have grown and disposed of. Now I eat the fruit and dispose of the pit.
It was more like “switch it on” when I decided to order a deep freeze chest. I have a freezer in the kitchen, but just normal size. With corona virus hovering around and me bein a golden oldie I decided I should have more reserve groceries at home. My son reminded me that it is always good to have a store of useful food at home.
I decided this was sensible and so I ordered my new freezer as I discovered I had enough room in my laundry room. I must say this is really an investment that has payed off. We now have Easter, and at last I have been able to cater for everything in advance. I have a few frozen breads, fish, vegetable and also some meat inside.
At the same time on an empty small table also in the laundry room, I switched up my reserves of canned food, jars, oil and pickles, and even two bottles of white and red wine (for cooking purposes of course). I think I am now set for the next crisis that might happen. Actually the Swiss government has always told its citizens to have an emergency food supply – you never know. I am not quite sure if this was joy, it was hard logistic work and I registered everything with dates, but I am now quite satisfied with the result.

This is my garden team. They are all ready to be let free amongst the flowerbeds when the weather improves. The big green one on the right is the boss.
At carnival time everyone wears bright colours. It certainly brightens up the day.
How often do you hear a plane flying above. You look up and see a speck in the sky. And the people in the plane, they might be looking out of the window, but they do not see you.
