Papa goes shopping in May
Step 2 was: Flowers. I went to a Greenhouse 10 miles away. It’s situated in the middle of nowhere. They have quality plants and the prices are favourable. Most of the year this Greenhouse is closed for the general public. They sell to flower shops. But during some weeks each spring, they are open for amateurs like me. I bought several different flowers and some tomato “bushes”. Just before I turned off from the main road, Anna called. –Where is the Pollock (Fish for our Cats)? – Oh my, how could I forget the most important? – “ miles extra, found a tiny shop. They did have frozen Pollock. Puuh. Saved.
And I did a short visit to my friend Frode, from childhood.
Frode and Astrid
We have known each other for almost 60 years. He has his holiday home 15 minutes from our summerhouse, and only a couple of minutes from the greenhouse. Well, it ended up with a bill NOK 1010. (EUR 125 or USD 175). And it was to chilly to leave the Flowers and Tomatoes outside.
Prepared for the Green Winter
While I was away, our wood supplier came with 12 sacks of dry wood for the fireplace. Nice to have in the Green Winter. But what a job to carry the sacs up to the house. It is steep as a downhill lane.
