Picturesque everyday life
Dead trees are generally not very picturesque. We have some dead trees, but not everybody agrees about their being dead. Once in a while an English friend gets the permission to cut one of those really very dead trees.
While he was cutting the tree I was poisoning herbs on the gravelwalk in the alley. Dressed like MOPP.
Water frogs (pelophylax) were watching me. They sit in the basin in front of the castle and are very busy catching food. I don’t seem to look very dangerous. Some people in France eat those frogs, they are also called edible frogs. Who could eat something cute like that? Okay, okay I admit except of spiders and crocodiles every animal looks cute to me.
On our daily walk in the evening me and the dogs were chased by a harvester. The farmers were working until late at night.
We saw a beautiful blue flower at the road. It’s a grass-leaved scabious (scabiosa graminifolia). It usually grows in the Mediterranean region.
It was getting dark and clouds covered the sky. The rays of the sun pierced through the grey masses, causing a somehow dramatic effect.
