Dear friends! Let's hope August will be the Summer month we can all enjoy! June and July have been far too hot. We've seen the red moon but now it's time to admire the traditional yellow August moon.

Guten Morgen!
Heute ist der Gaertner frueh da, um meine drei grossen Buchsbaumkugeln zu toeten, die leider vom Buchbaumzuensler befallen sind. Da ich kein Gift dagegen spritzen will, muessen sie nun weg, nachdem sie 15 Jahre eine Zierde des Gartens waren.
Da ich sie selbst aber auch nicht mehr schneiden kann, faellt mir der Abschied relativ leicht.

Ich wuensche allen eine schoene warme Augustwoche, die nun auch das Ende des Hochsommers bedeuet.

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
There are many clouds today. Maybe I would not need to water the plants today :)

Hornisse sind friedlich, aber sie sind sehr gross. Ich bin froh, dass bei uns im Garten leben keine.

Herkules is ready

Till now the cats are not injured. Two years ago Sydney was stung in the paw. The paw got thick. We were at the vet with Sydney.

Britta-Gudrun - I have several ideas for suitable males for our single ladies but because my 'match making' hasn't been very succesful before I keep my ideas for myself. :D - I think the drink sounds good! :D

Ludmila - Do the whasps annoy your cats? - Wow, you've made plum jam. Maybe we can taste it?

Hello friends!
Today we had to get up early in the morning. It was not very warm in the forest at running. In the afternoon I cooked the plum jam, Uwe worked with the new arch for the roses. Then I watered our plants.

Nanook ist ein sehr hübsches Kind

I am here for the drink with you

Bei uns gibt es sehr viele Wespen in diesem Jahr.

Guten Abend in die kleine Runde!

Mervi, viele Knutianer scheinen an diesem sonnigen Augustsonntag wieder
unterwegs zu sein. Also muessen wir die Stellung halten.
Ja, mit den Baerendamen hast du Recht. Sonst herrscht meistens Maennerueberschuss, aber dieses Mal werden huebsche Maenner dringend gesucht.
Vielleicht hat Uncle Sergej einen passenden Drink dazu heute Abend?
Wie waere es mit: My Name ist Bond no Baer-Bond! Prost!

Ralph, Britta-Gudrun - Thank you for presenting information of Umca's passing. We have many widowed polar bear ladies for the time being - Venus, Malik, Giovanna and now even Cora.

Chris - The heat wave seems to have come to stay in Frankfurt! Oh bear!

GUTEN TAG

Wir haben wieder 30°C.
Zum Glück sind die Nächte
jetzt etwas kühler, so dass
man nachts lüften kann.

How sad with Umka. :(
Surgery is always a risk.

I hurry to Monis report in KWM ! :)

Yeo, ich freue mich ueber deinen gemeinsamen Tag in Berlin mit Annemarie.

Mervi, der kleine Seeloewe im KWM ist allerliebst.

Habt einen schoenen Sonntag!

I have just looked at the Zoo Brno website. Umca died after an operation on badly damaged teeth. There will be an autopsy. It would be interesting to know the life expectancy of males in the wild. It may be that as with many animals including humans the smaller stronger and more active females have a longer life expectancy.

It is great to see Nanook growing. I hope to visit Gelsenkirchen in September. Thanks Chris for the link.
Sad news about Umca.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - Sunday greetings to you!

Saturdays seem to be the days of sad news. Yesterday Umca in Brno had to leave us at the age of only 20 years. Cora will be alone now that Noria will be moving to Rostock.

Britta-Gudrun - I hope Django will come and cheer you up often now.

Ludmila - Congratulations to your 900 years old town! - Birgit always gives me permission to publish her reports even in KWM. It's very generous of her.

Chris - Nanook has certainly grown a lot but she's still a cute cubbie.

Yeo - I can imagine you and Annemarie had a great time in the CCC. - I've heard, too, that the wasps are really annoying this year in Bärlin. It's wise to avoid them! - Thank you for the breakfast!

In KWM Monika aus Berlin presents more happy family news and you can even meet Kati and Wolodja! I wish everybody a cosy Sunday!

Good morning dear Knuipians!

Vielen lieben Dank für eure netten Wünsche. Annemarie und ich hatten gestern einen schönen Tag. Wir waren nicht im Zoo, sondern ein bisschen bummeln und Kaffee trinken.
Viele liebe Grüße!
In den Zoo gehe ich im Moment nicht so gern wegen der Wespen. Ich bin allergisch. Hoffentlich ist es im September dann nicht mehr so schlimm.

@ Chris
Danke für das Bild von Nanook!

Coffee and breakfast are ready. Enjoying your meal!
I wish you all a beautiful Sunday!

Hello friends!
Mervi
Saturday is mostly our cleaning day :) Today I was busy with cleaning, Uwe worked with a new arch for the roses. In the afternoon we were swimming and later we visited the feast in our town. Our town celebrates the 900th birthday.
Our cats are the whole day outside. Speedy sits often in the sun shine.
Ralph
Birgit posts the reports at knutitis and in the blog of UliS. I hope she will write a report about her visit in Hellabrunn.

Mervi, Django liebt es immer noch bei dem warmen Wetter im
Biergarten bedient zu werden. Er kommt aber abends auch manchmal
wieder in die Wohnung fuer einen kleinen Nap auf dem Sofa.

Chris - I didn't know Putte was coming to Germany ....- I'm keeping my fingers for all the animals in the forests and hope they're not suffering too much from this exceptionally dry period.

Ralph - Thank you for the emails! It was a very good idea to send them as you did! - I just saw the last episode of Lewis and it was fun to see some of the places you and Sisu presented in your report. :D

Britta-Gudrun - I wish you a pleasant afternoon and evening! Has Django considered having his meals indoors again or is he still enjoying the luxorious life in his Biergarten? :D

Einen kleinen Gruss am Nachmittag!
Ja, es ist wieder sehr warm geworden, also muss heute Abend wieder ein
bisschen gegossen werden.
