|With so much sun and decent temperatures it was a day to spend outside. We have a lot of work waiting for us and I started with building another plant frame for Bea’s various vegetable projects. A frame, filled up with black soil is very handy if one wants to produce vegetables in a small controllable scale. A micro climate can be made by covering the frames with old windows or transparent plastic foil.|
Next project was the further improvement of our shed. Last year we build it in OSB-sheets only. Now it needed trim and paint. A special task was the front wall showing towards the road. Bea said there should be a window, but I had already put up shelves inside, so a window was pretty much out of the question. But I had a solution. Since it is not quite finished yet I won’t show a picture tonight. But maybe tomorrow.
While I was painting and hammering, Bea got busy along the front of the house.
She started building a flowerbed. She had to cut away lawn and fill the turfs back into another spot. To get it straight she strung a line along as guidance. Lots of work! And I’m sure it will ad to the house’s appearance.
She also discovered a little beetle, which we now found out was a leaf beetle. Looks a bit like a lady bug but is none.
A car wash was something I wanted to get done a long time ago, but the weather hadn’t been right. The Fat Lady had a layer of dust on her long red hood. I had just about finished the job when a neighbour called and asked whether I could come over to take a couple of pictures of something she thought would make for nice pictures. There I had the excuse I was looking for to take the Fat Lady out for a ride.
When I got over to their place I saw…..well this:
The neighbour lady is collecting scarves. Scarves in all kind of patterns and colours. And she did not put them on a cloth line just for me. Nope, the story behind it is a different one. She had discovered that a mouse had used the pile of scarves to make a nest for her babies. After relocating the little ones into the greenhouse she started the washer, and that’s how all these scarves ended up on a cloth line. Matter of fact it was pretty and knowing we have a blog she called for a photo session. I wonder whether all need to be ironed before putting them back into the closet.
And that’s all there is today. Thanks for making looky, looky!
