So for my Five I'll start with the them for my week---RAIN. We've had a mess of rain. After going weeks with little or no rain and having to water the garden everyday the heavens opened up on Tuesday and poured. We got more than 3 1/2 inches of rain, then clouds on Wednesday and yesterday nearly 3/4's of an inch more. And for this afternoon and evening they're forecasting heavy thunderstorms. We've had a stalled cold front (we're in the 80's, so it's not very cold) all week. It should finally move out sometime Saturday afternoon.
For my second are some of the new German words I learned this week:
tschüss Bye I only knew Auf Wiedersehen or Ciao
Gern Geschehen Thank you Formerly I just said Danke
Ahnung idea I don't think I'd ever heard this word before
In Ordnung Alright
Gemüse Vegetable Can't believe I didn't know this word, know the names for lots of veggies but not the general name
My third is a book I finished in a little over a day and it was nearly 400 pages, I devoured it. It's The Daughter by Jane Shemilt. It's the story of the disappearance of a 15 year daughter, the secrets hidden and the destruction of a family. Really enjoyed it.
The fourth are the Hydrangeas blooming in the yard. We have blue, pink and almost purple. You can change the colors of your Hydrangeas by changing the ph of the soil. White ones can't be change, but blues can be changed to pink by adding aluminum sulphate or potassium to the soil. We did it with an old spoon. You can change pink to blue by adding lime phosphate.
And number Five are my squash, they're flowering and I actually have a baby squash. I'm excited, we've never been able to grow them before.
That's my Five for this week, what are yours?
