Today I love the wind.
It is strange that I can almost hate the wind all year but just love it after a heat wave 🙂 I don’t think we’ve reached 20C (68F) today but the sun has been shining most parts of it and the really strong wind has both dried up my lawn and keep the flies away. It felt just amazing to be able to mow the lawn without getting bit by any flies 🙂 We could even walk into the forest without getting specially disturbed by them. The wind didn’t blow especially hard in there but I guess it was enough to make the flies think it was best to stay where they were.
I have cherries on my two tiny Sand Cherry trees! Not many but there are cherries 🙂 So Now I’ll place the chicken net over them so the birds won’t be able to reach them. This kind of sand cherry doesn’t get higher than half a meter (much the same in yards) but the brancj´hes can be longer than that but they tend to follow the ground instead. One need two different plants to get cherries and that is exactly what I managed to get when I sowed the seeds a few years ago. I’ve read that these cherries will be rather tasty so I really hope that’s true 🙂
There are lots of butterflies flying around too now but it is still so warm that they never sit still long enough to become photographed. I did get one on photo yesterday though and I saw a photo of it with its name written beneath it but I just can’t remember it 🙂 It seems that this place is amongst the few where butterflies still are common and that’s of course because all farmers around here are organic farmers, no pesticides allowed at all.
It is time to see if the mail has arrived, it is probably the most exiting thing that happens here in the village. That and when the ice cream truck comes 🙂 I really have no clue to when the ice cream truck comes but I think it might be on a Friday and most likely when most people work. I don’t think children can go to the ice cream truck to buy just one ice cream here like I know they can elsewhere, it is a package of it or nothing. They sell other frozen things too so if one have nothing to have for dinner and the ice cream truck comes it can save the day 🙂 I’ll keep my ears open so I don’t miss that most annoying tune it plays when it arrives. It is so annoying that the poor divers have been threatened and the tires have been cut with knives when it stand still. I know it is annoying but cutting tires won’t help, then they can play that tune until they get help and that can take hours 🙂
Have a great day!
