It’s still cold and we have frosty nights and mornings, but spring is coming undeniably!
We now had rain for many days and also a lot of time in the evenings because it wasn’t possible to meet friends and family because of Covid. So we thought it is time to bring the forest inside our living room and create some mythical forest creatures, elves, leprechauns and angels.
My man got a wildlife camera for his birthday from his parents and now he is complaining that this is much more a present for me than for him 🙂 (In reality he is quite happy, that I deal with the crappy 90s interface of the thing).
So just for your inspiration: We have been nine people and everyone had to make a distribution for the three days together. Show the others something, invite them to create.
What a lush summer. The garden was so happy and green in August. And when the hazelnuts were ripe, Wolfgang and his squirrel-colleagues went crazy. Who finds the woodpecker in the pictures?
What you see on the first picture is a branchling of the long-eared owl (Waldohreulen-Ästling) which is a kind of a teenager owl who can already fly but still lives with its parents who feed it. We had three siblings of them in our pine trees and they made hell of a noise. When it starts getting dark they start screaming “iiiigh” every other second all over the night. I called them Ilona, Ingo and Ignaz. They are so cute and fluffy and they can turn their head 180 degrees!
What an abundance when everything starts to bloom and grow!
The tiny Japanese Cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) which I brought from the Azores and planted in October is still alive but it doesn’t (yet) grow.
Every month, every week in summer nature completely changes everything.
Our private wilderness changes its face every week and shows us what nature can do without any influence. Tobias. the apple tree who was just a stick with roots four weeks ago has grown a lot of leaves and a lot of birds come to see us every morning. And Wolfgang the squirrel becomes less and […]
He already lived here last year, but he supposably didn’t understand the squirrel-feeder. Now I caught him finally getting it. Awe, he’s cute!
