Today at the start of the day... hmmm... I just realise how habits are changing. One year ago, at this season, I used to have my morning coffee in the garden. Today after walking slowly down the stairs to kitchen, having my banana, making coffee, grabbing the mug and open a laptop to see what is going on outside of my virtual window while sitting at the real window. I love to blog from my living room where through a big window I can see some garden and SKY, I can hear the water flowing at the pond and happy birds announcing the start of the day.
Neighbours' house is slowly dissapearing in the abundance of growing trees. While still having no terrace or porch, living room with wide open window is my best solution. But - just came to my mind - even if there would be a porch, probably I would not take my laptop there for obvious reason - it is too bright outside to feel comfortable with reading. This must be just a little cheating when you see pictures of a guy seating on the beach in Bahamas, having his laptop... eee... why they don't show girls doing same? Anyone have seen a woman in similar situation?
So I surfed on the net this morning - jumping from one blog to another - sometimes getting off the course with the links that carry me there.
One discovery today made me really happy. A new blog. And about bugs! By entomologist! Wizzie Brown at Urban IPM is bringing closer the world of these critters. Oh my goodness. Finally. Thank you Pam/Digging for spreading the news.
As there is less heavy work in the garden and garden matures, there is more interesting species appearing.
I would like to know which of them are which. Some are good some are bad, but recognising them or searching the info is just a pain if you don't know any single part of the name.
Urban IPM will be definately a blog to read.
Second surprise I discovered on Carol's blog May Dreams Gardens. In one of the last Carol lists gardener's favourite movies. One of them 'Secret Garden' is directed by Polish movie director Agnieszka Holland. And that made little ashamed, cos I have not seen the movie - this made want to change it immediately.
Another movie by her is Copying Beethoven with Ed Harris in main role. Worth to spend your priceless time on it.
Have a nice Sunday!
