Glorious 5th

 

Written Yesterday:

Today is one of the high points of the year. It’s gloriously warm and sometimes sunny out. I was up at 4:30 (GMT) with the sun, and in the garden by 5:00, pulling weeds, trimming ivy, repotting the Gaillardia, clearing a patch of ivy and debris from a corner, adding to the new compost frame I made yesterday, and napping on the inflatable sofa.

The warm, still air is slightly fragrant with jasmine and honeysuckle. The clouds moved in late morning, and there’s a hint of impending storm. Not that I expect one, just that it’s that kind of day. The boughs moving slightly, gently; the streets and gardens quiet. A timelessness. Light, but not the broad light of blazing sun. A gentle light. Everything slow, quiet; evocative rather than overt. Gorgeous.

I’ve also made glorious progress with Morcego. I’d been having problems that were all to do with Firefox. I tried viewing my demo installation with Chrome, and it was already working! Ditto Opera. So I must have a java block on Firefox somewhere. Now that’s solved, I’ve been making happy progress figuring out the XML syntax for a node map. It’s still in demo mode, so I’m not linking to it.
