Lots of birds.
The kitchen door is open and I can hear all the birds singing in y garden and by the field outside my fence. It is a truly wonderful but slightly chilly morning but the sun is shining straight towards the door so it neutralize the cold a lot. Today is the opposite to how it was yesterday and how it will be tomorrow. We’ll get rain but much warmer weather from Tuesday according to predictions and no one will believe that until we see it happen 🙂
It was foggy outside when I woke up but too cold to take a walk, I just didn’t want to be freezing that early in the morning 🙂 I doubt it was much warmer when we went away but at least the sun reached us most parts of our walk 🙂 Not a man-made sound could be heard, just the birds and breaking of twigs when animals moved around to avoid us. I wish You all could follow us those mornings just to listen to all the sounds. I know that won’t be happening so I found a site where the bird songs can be heard, so I’ll post links to some of those I hear here every morning in spring and early summer. There are of course plenty more but these are the ones that sort of are characteristic for areas like this.
Too bad the weather wasn’t as good as this yesterday because I had planned to go to a place where they have lots of old stone age tombs, in a sheep pasture 🙂 But that will have to wait until it’s either foggy or I will pass the area anyway. These tombs are unlike the ones we have here not covered with soil so it is easy to see how they were built, There are also a few menhirs that I’ve never taken a closer look at. There’s actually an old stone ship/ ship setting on my way to work. Every time I see it I’m thinking I must bring my camera one day to take a few photos of it when the sun is rising, I never remember to do it though 🙂
I have brought home one (will bring home one more) plastic barrel (200 liters/ 55 gallons, that I will make a compost tumbler of. I can’t remember how I found this site on the net but it seems to work and I’ll give it a try, I can get the plastic barrel from work for free since they will be tossed away otherwise 🙂 This one is meant to be standing in the sun, the warmer the better it seems. The only thing I need to do now is to build a scaffold for it, no problems for a handy man like me 🙂 🙂 🙂 Well I hope it will hold together for its first year anyway 🙂 If it works as I hope I then can make as many as I feel I need and since I only have almost sand in the ground this compost will be welcome to mix down into it.
It is time to make a pot of tea and after that I think I’ll take a tour in the garden.
Have a great day!
Links to the different bird songs I can hear here in the morning, they should all open up in a new window. So watch the photos and listen to the birds and You’ll get something of what I have here every morning:
There are of course lots more, they had for instance not the sound from Cranes but You can hear them in the background in the Bluetit tape.
