Not the nicest of weathers.
I told my neighbor yesterday that it is so nice now when summer has arrived because now we don’t need to wear a sweater under the winter jacket, it’s enough with a t-shirt 🙂 I guess that sums up what kind of weather we’re having here and will continue to have for the rest of the week it seems. But on June sixth the last night with risk of frost will come and after that I don’t care, all plants indoors will be tossed out no matter what 🙂
But it was actually warmer than they had predicted this morning, 11C (51,8F) and that is what we’ll have as warmest tomorrow the entire day. I knew we would have to pay for having another warm and nice winter 🙂 There are some good things with this cold weather though, the mosquitoes are still rather calm and all the rest of the insects stays in the trees and bushes most of the time which makes it easier for the birds to catch them. But the most important thing is that there’s no risk of over heating while mowing the lawn 🙂 I still need at least a thick sweater while mowing and it still feels rather cold 🙂
I went down into the cow pasture yesterday to see if I could find the badger set, or at least the entrance too it. No problems at all actually. It’s placed perfect for the badgers but not as perfect for me when I’ll go down some late evening to get some photos if possible. The two holes are easy to find but just beneath them is a ditch or perhaps it is an old creek that they have dug out. The ground water pours out of the ground further up the cow pasture and this is its natural way to flow. Anyhow, the badgers must take a turn as soon as they go outside the set and walk up on the field on the other side of the creek, making it impossible for me to see them from where I’ll stand in front of the entrance.
My neighbor had been walking in that field a few days ago when suddenly a badger baby came crawling up on his foot 🙂 The parents to it didn’t seem to mind at all so he said hello to the little one and walked away 🙂 The dogs and I met one yesterday afternoon too but an older one and it didn’t seem especially happy to meet us at all, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a badger run away so fast. It was even quicker than the one Sune jumped up on two years ago 🙂 That poor badger did everything it could just to get away while I tried to keep Nova away because she thought Sune was being attacked when it actually was the other way round. Well Sune was only 10 weeks old by the time and had no idea what a badger was 🙂
It is time to make something to eat and then perhaps watch the news or what ever they might show on the Knowledge channel.
Have a great day!
