When the gardener discovered that our lawn had become a breeding place for grubs, chafer, beetle babies or whatever you call them, we decided to have a new lawn replanted.
The most efficient and quickest solution was to have a ready made rolled lawn. It was wonderful, for 1-2 years until the chafer arrived with their new generation of babies. Then I gave up, no more creative thoughts. Now we have raised beds so that the grubs cannot climb to their breedng ground and lawn no longer forms part of our garden vocabulary.
I remember in the past years when in May we would have swarms of flying objects using the garden as their airport. Since many years they no longer fly, they seem to have moved elsewhere.RDP Saturday: Create

I not spend most afternoons for an hour with Mr. Swiss in his Golden Oldie refuge and now the warmer weather is with us we are generally outside. They have a wonderful pond with a couple of ducks and fish, but above all you can relax to the sound of the water flowing. It is a very soothing background for relaxation.RDP Saturday: Flow
Having a river running through it we have plenty of bridges in our town. However there are bridges and bridges and this one was placed on top of a bridge, for an art exhibition. It is not a bridge to cross, but more to observe and in my case when I saw it, have thoughts on what it was actually supposed to be. Perhaps it was to help the chicken cross the road.RDP Saturday: Bridge
The only object remotely having something to do with the word “fox” here that I have seen is a foxglove flower, so that is all I can offet.
Of course we have foxes, but they appear during the night when I am sleeping and are only noticed by the mess they leave behind in the morning if they happen to get hold of a garbage bag. Of course the rooster at the local chicken run has had his experience with foxes, and decides to go into action when one would bother his harem of chicken ladies. And so I just stick with the foxgloves.RDP Saturday: Fox
During the Covid pandemic there were doormats everywhere, but not exactly the welcoming doormats we like to see. Ths was the C & A store in town.
And this was in the supermarket telling everone to following the traffic light system, green and red for go and stop. Now a thing of the past I hope.RDP Saturday: Doormat
It seems we still have enough eggs to sell “free range eggs direct from the farm” tells it all. I see the hens regularly and some times they take the free range words quite seriously and they might crawl under the fence and begin to explore the range they have.
This looks like a family excursion.
Of course I also have eggs, bought at the local store. I cannot be bothered to colour them myself and these six will cover our needs. I remember when all four kids were at home we would have an egg painting session with all sorts of designs and colours, about 20-30 eggs, but those days are gone. I now leave it to my son and his family to cater for needs with my grandchildren.RDP Saturday:Eggs
Were these plates broken
A piece is not there
But they were necessary
For a moustache to share
And I found a tassel, which seemed to be a rare object amongst my photos. However, in the section marked “Market” I was sure to find something in that line. Just a lonely red tassel hanging down.RDP Saturday: Tassels
