Sea of Green

Goodbye winter, hello spring! Well, this post is not about SOG, a gardening method that cannabis growers use to grow the maximum number of plants possible in the shortest amount of time. This is about the fresh, new green colours I see in nature while I’m walking in the first days of spring.

Green is not my favourite colour (it’s grey and black) but I love all the new green colours of spring plants, first leaves and grass. Spring wakes me and I’m calm again, just like Gustav Mahler said.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

 

Ecological Footprint

Walking in the snow. Following Mr. Bowie’s ecological footprints wil guide me home and ignite my bones. Giant steps are what he takes. Paws they hardly touch the ground. I hope my legs don’t break.

Enjoy this cold day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

 

No Planet B

Waiting for spring. And summer. Early morning exercise is good for your heart. Walking in the morning has tremendous cardiovascular benefits, so Mr. Bowie gets the most from his walking routine. But today it seems Mr. Bowie regrets his decision of going outside. Temperatures dropped below zero degrees Celsius and a few cm snowfall is predicted for next Tuesday. This will be our first snow of the winter. Although Mr. Bowie likes playing in the snow, lately he prefers sleeping on the duvet in my bedroom.

Meanwhile, over 12,500 students gathered in Brussels on last Thursday, skipping school again for the second week in a row to march for the climate. “Skipping school? No. We fight for our future,” one sign read, according to The Associated Press. This protest mimics similar climate movements by students in other countries over Europe. One of the most notable young activists is Greta Thunberg, a Swedish 16-year-old who began a strike in front of Swedish parliament last year and has inspired thousands of others to do the same. The students marching for action against climate change will go on until they see real change, according to Anuna De Wever, the 17-year-old instigator of the movement. Respect! The Belgian students are hoping to protest again next week, according to the reports.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

Seriously?

Seriously? Is this for real? This cup ain’t big enough for the both of us!

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

 

3 Days

3 more days to go. Hang in there, Mr. Bowie! Temperatures will drop from 37 degrees Celsius tomorrow to 23 degrees Celsius next Friday. Finally! No more panting and puffing because of the heat. Mr. Bowie loves to hide from the heat in the Pennisetum, commonly known as fountain grasses. I guess it’s one of the best spots to hide in the garden. I prefer to stay inside with all the fans blowing at maximum speed, giving me a hard time to read the newspaper. Monday I’ll have Friday on my mind…

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.
