I really can’t complain about the weather :-)
We did have frost here in the early morning but things changed pretty fast as soon as the thin see-through clouds that were up in the sky slightly blocking the sun had moved away. I sat in the kitchen and had breakfast as I saw two of my neighbors who had to work today drove away and smiled as I didn’t have to go myself 🙂 The last time I looked at the thermometer we had reached 20C (68F) but it might have been much warmer 🙂
I had hoped to see the fox this morning too but I couldn’t see it down by the field where it usually is, instead I saw two cranes which isn’t that bad either to be honest. They were very quiet this morning so I didn’t even hear how they flew above my head. Cranes are normally anything but quiet to be honest 🙂
I got even more happy when Sune and Nova scared a squirrel who were looking for food on the ground. I wasn’t glad they scared it but it gave me a chance to see it properly when it climbed up the tree constantly scolding us for disturbing it 🙂 The squirrels here are very shy and it is usually rather hard to find them. I guess they have more enemies here who wants to eat them, like the Marten. Long time since I saw a Marten here so I hope that’s the next animal we’ll see this weekend.
We could also with lots of luck get a chance to see a wolf since they have seen one several times in the neighborhood, well the next door county to be honest 🙂 They say it is a young male looking for a new place to stay. No one here seems to mind wolves especially much, not even the hunters. My neighbor the farmer just put up more secure fences with extra electricity and wires in it. After all we already have lynx’s here so those new fences needed to be put up anyway.
I went to a garden center too today. I wanted to go to my favorite one but they didn’t sell the variety I needed, both hardy and one that will pollinate my neighbors plum tree. Instead I went to my former competitor to get what I wanted. It is a huge place and they always seems to have what one could want. For once I only bought what I needed but it was close 🙂 I did find some other things I would like but they aren’t hardy enough to be honest so I’ll wait another year or two and hope the climate change will hep me get in to the right zone 🙂
It is time to make something to eat, grilled sausages I think. I’ll use my electric grill since I’ve never come around to buy a real outdoor one 🙂
Have a great day!
