I don’t mind as long as it doesn’t dig beneath my cottage.
I must have had a fantastic dream last night because I woke up and felt disappointed that it wasn’t real 🙂 I can’t remember what it was all about, I seldom do but it must have been fantastic 🙂 One night when I just have moved here I woke up laughing like crazy, I have no idea what that dream was about but I continued to laugh for a very long time 🙂 I wish I could remember what I was dreaming, especially when I wake up either laughing or feel disappointed to wake up 🙂 🙂
I did use quite a lot of the water in the barrels yesterday, especially the tomato plants needed water,this morning the barrels were full again so it must have been raining quite a lot during the night. This morning isn’t especially chilly but it feels like it is because of the high humidity. We went out early as usual and there’s this one place where we need to walk through a cow pasture to be able to continue on the road on the other side and go homewards again. The cows haven’t been there for a very long time so we have been able to pass without any problems, cows with calves will try to kill you if you bring dogs. We had passed through half of the pasture when I suddenly heard something strange.
Yes, cows were in the pasture today 🙂 They got more surprised than we did so I managed to get the dogs out of the pasture before they came any closer and with no dogs no danger to me 🙂 They just stood there watching me and I was lucky because there were no calves close so I didn’t have to jump out of the pasture in a hurry 🙂 I even managed to take a photo before I too left the pasture. Nothing else happened on our walk though. This is the time of summer when birds stop singing so I only heard two birds this morning. They are all now just raising their younglings and after that they’ll eat as much as they can and fly south again.
They say we’ll get sunshine later today, strong winds and not especially warm. It looks as if we should be happy if it reach 17C (62,6F) and if that keeps the flies calm I won’t complain. Normally those biting flies would start to die out now but this cool weather we’ve had have made everything late, I do hope their time soon will be over though. I wonder if this means the moose flies will be late as well, I hope they will be so late that they get hit withy frost as soon as they hatch 🙂
I planted some of my pink flowered dandelions in a flower bed some weeks ago and guess what happened? Yes my dogs ate them 🙂 🙂 🙂 I still have a few left though, I planted them in a big pot and so far they’ve been left alone by the dogs. I’m pretty sure a badger visits the garden during nights now, I can see tracks from them everywhere, they tend to walk the same way every time so they create paths rather quickly. One has dug very close to my cottage and that’s not a good thing. I’ve placed all kinds of things at that spot so if they come back those things will fall down on it and I hope it scares it from digging there again.
I do like badgers but it is not a good thing if they think that it would be a great place to have a set beneath my cottage. I really need to get one of those wild life cameras now, I wonder what other visitors I might have here. I don’t mind if the badger like to dig in other places though, it eats slugs and all kinds of things we don’t want in our gardens and they love to eat ground-dwelling wasp nests. I’ve found several wasp nests on the road this last week.
It is time for a pot of tea and after that a nap I think, I hope I’ll wake up to sunshine and less humidity 🙂
Have a great day!
