Highlights in August
The weather is unpredictable - the sky gives no clues. In Europe, there is a drought as it is here.
But then the rain comes - 60 mm within a few days. To the delight of animals and nature. The gulls hunt insects in the sky.
Quails hide in the tall grass. The crow plays rooster and crows noisily at 4 o'clock in the morning. The black cat appears at noon and begs for food.
The neighbor's sheep have escaped and come to visit. The grass is greener here, they seem to think. The caterpillar of the privet hawk moth also honors us with a visit.
The seedlings with cucumber and tomatoes have given good harvests. We enjoy a liturgical tomato sauce for the pasta.
