They trust us that much now!
I didn’t wake up until 5:30 this morning, unusually late for being me and I woke up with a sore throat and stuffed nose. It isn’t fun to get a cold in the middle of the summer, they usually stay much longer than the ones we get in winter. But then again, it isn’t much of a summer when it comes to the weather so this might be over in a day or two 🙂 We’re having strong winds and sunshine between the clouds and it isn’t that bad to be honest 🙂 I know I tend to complain when we get weather like this but I think I’ve gotten so used to it now that this feels like normal summer weather, never above 20C (68F) that is 🙂 🙂
I wasn’t able to pick ripe tomatoes this early last year and they do say that this July is warmer than normal?! I guess that’s because nights have been slightly warmer and sort of evens up and a bit more the slightly chillier days. I really can’t compare to how it is here since I live in a hollow, it’s either colder or warmer here than it is elsewhere. That shows especially on hot summer days when it is a couple of degrees warmer down here or on cold winter days when it is just the opposite.
My neighbor the beekeeper might have huge problems with his hives, the queens seems to have left the hives! The old hive could have swarmed when he wasn’t at home but they don’t usually do that unless there are more than one queen. Our best guess to this is that the old queen in the old hive got killed by a new queen and that the new queen went out to find a drone. That is most likely the case in the new hive and if this is tha case for both hives the queens should be back after a week. The hives still functioning well so we can just hope for the best. It has gone a week now so we’ll know soon enough.
It is a nothing much to do day today. I could mow the lawn since the grass is dry and the wind most likely will keep the flies away but then again, one shouldn’t do anything exhausting while having a cold 🙂 Instead I think I’ll nap a lot and have lots of tea with ginger 🙂
Have a great day!
