Hail & Thunder

Typical April weather, is what my mom would have said. Poor flowers. They look miserable and beaten by the hail storm yesterday. The weather changed several times from sunshine to almost as dark as in the night. We even heard a thunder.

Liverleaf (Anemone hepatica)

They will cover the ground and turn it into a blue carpet. Unfortunately I was able to take only one photo before my camera informed it run out of charge. I forgot to charge it last night. I took an other camera with me this morning. So on the way back from the dentist I went to take some more photos. Oh no ! Again, one photo and also this camera run out of charge. Well, I am charging them now 😀

Autumn Evening

Brown Knapweed or Greater Knapweed img_1945cBrown Knapweed or Greater Knapweed img_1954cBrown Knapweed or Greater Knapweed img_1955cIt was a beautiful evening yesterday. No wind, still warm, +15 C, sunshine. I usually make an about 30 min. evening walk with Canelo. This time I made it a bit longer. I stopped to take many more pictures than usually. The flowers against the wall of the container looked so pretty. I think they are either Brown Knapweed or Greater Knapweed.Rowan berries img_1968cRowan berries img_1969cThen I stopped to shoot rowan berries.A drone with camera img_1986c When I was about to go back home a guy took out a drone with a camera from his trunk. I asked him would it be OK for me to shoot a couple of pics. Yes, yes, he said, no problem. He turned the drone on. I got one picture when it was still on the ground ready to go. Then it took off. Swoooooosh ! It scared Canelo so he almost pulled me down. When I looked up the drone was hundreds of meters up in the sky. I stood there staring up until my neck became stiff.Sunset img_1991c I turned around and saw the sun had just set. A couple of more pictures of the sunset and then we started to walk back home. It started to get dark. On the road I heard a car coming from behind. I stepped aside to let it pass. WHAT ! ? My husband ! He rolled down the window and said where have you been ? Why didn’t you answer the phone ? You have been away for two hours ! Have we been away that long ? I didn’t realize, time flew. Sorry ! I set the phone on silent during the language lesson and forgot to set it back. Really, he was worried enough to go look for me. I didn’t think he would 😉 And how many pictures did I take ? Oh my, 60 !
