Thursday 17 May 2012: Männertreu is the German name
for Lobelia. Looking very pretty in the sunshine on the terrace, I think. It was awful nice to be out there with the warm boards benath me feet and Moot doing his "I've fallen over again, you need to stroke me some more" shtick.
I rescued a little bee-with-a-red-bum* from the water dish. Normally I keep well away from all things that buzz but I wasn't going to let it drown was I? The last I saw of it, it was drying itself off on the table where I hope the sun will help.
Today is Himmelfahrt and we get a holiday for that here. It would have been nice if it had been a long weekend but I'll take what I get.
Yesterday's song was "Full Moon Of Love", a favourite k. d. lang song. Today's song goes like this :-
Nun dein Glaube war stark, aber du brauchtest Beweise
Du sahst sie auf dem Dach baden
Ihre Schönheit und das Mondlicht überwältigten dich
Sie fesselte dich an ihren Küchenstuhl
Und sie brach deinen Thron und sie schnitt dein Haar
* used hyphens just in case you thought "I rescued a bee with a red bum" meant I used a red bum to rescue a bee. That would be just silly, I used a spoon.
