Summer on the way . . .


the dawn 

 her early light alights

so soft inside my window




Sun flowers



the rosebush set,

the daffodils deadheaded . . . 

 how quick they grow - these lions' teeth 


Löwenzähne - The teeth of lions

    1. Pat, thank you. It's that sort of day. I tend to respond to the weather. In winter I'm grim- In summer I'm happy and free. I'm sure doctors have a name for it but I don't need to know it. I'm not a serious case. Although I've been called 'daft as brush' in my time - a phrase I expect you've heard too - but I take it as a backhanded compliment.

    2. By the way, i was you who advised me to deadhead the daffs so that the energy goes back into the bulb. We should have a good show next year. Fingers crossed. Or hold your thumbs, as the saying is here.

  2. It feels like summer is a long way off today but it can change quickly and perhaps we could have a heatwave by this time next week.

    1. Heat wave. Thunder. Or the ice men are coming. It's all mixed up. The cold snap was 10 days earlier in the 17th century here in Austria. The weatherman just said its due 11th - 17 th May. I just planted the rose bush and now they're talking frost. Ah well, it'll have to take its chance. I'm not taking it in again.

    1. Thanks for the nice comment and for the congrats. I'm watching the race review on TV. I hadn't realized that the catcher car driver in my race is paralyzed from waist down. Great that nearly 7 million euros was raised for a worthy cause. One day, maybe in the next 10 years, people will be able to get out of their wheelchairs. The nogo, as its called, which stops the signal in the nerve in the spine is known, the trick is to remove the thing that blocks it. That's where the research all over the world using top experts is going. It's only a matter of time . . .

  4. Very clever - the teeth of lions. Think you can make a tea with their roots?
