Who is looking in your door?

I am a very lucky girl. A. because I love to have Tima looking through my door and B. because Tane cannot climb the steps – yet! Anyway he is too busy in the frog garden, he has discovered some unharvested beets and has a pink nose and lipsticked lips from digging them up and scoffing …

Queenie

Welcome Home.  This is just camera  trickery making Ton look so small. She and Elsie are instant friends.  Absolutely no problem at all. Though she has put on a bit of weight has our Queenie!  And hopefully pregnant. We will know in the New Year. I hope you have a lovely day. Your friend on …

SUN!!!

Yes! For the first time in Months, we had a sunny day all day. The whole day.  And tomorrow is the shortest day.  Oh JOY! Here is something I found on the internet. I don’t know what half that means. All that is really important to me is that from tommorrow on the days begin to lengthen …

Night …

The Matriarch and I went out to the town yesterday.  We seldom go to town and I was home late. Well, 4.30pm but  the winter dark comes early. No-one minded. No animals minded anyway. They all eat hay and there was plenty of that left out for them to munch during the day. Sheila was up …

Merry Xmas Pictures

I know it is not Christmas yet. But I could not resist. Kittens in a basket. You can’t get more Christmassy than this. Kittens. What can you do? One more left for another good home yesterday. Now there are three. Sheila got up late yesterday afternoon, limped  very slowly to where Hop and Pop Poppy was …

Sheila has trotter trouble

The day before yesterday Sheila pulled up lame, by that afternoon she was not walking at all. This happens to Sheila sometimes, she had been out in the field and I think she trips on the ruts, or the coming rain upsets her bones but usually it is the hip that was gouged by the …

TonTon Chooses

All the names of the people who put their names into the hat to win the little photo book of the Farmy were written on paper and balled up and popped into a basket. The audience gathered – yawning. TonTon loves a good competition and decided that the paper balls needed a proper stir up before …

BooBoo gets a shock

The four kittens left are wilder than ever.  As though the lightness of their numbers has lightened their thoughts. I almost caught Godot in flight. We are getting closer to that perfect image. His wings are so glorious. This is a very long away shot of Godot raising his tail. His unfinished tail.  A promise. …

Yumkins

My visitors from the city brought gifts. PUMPKINS. YUMKINS. Oh we do love those pumpkins out here. And my city friend (Berrit’s Mum you remember her)  had hidden these big tasty pumpkins inside her house  from that nasty cold spell we had a few weeks back and so they are  still orange and crunchy. Sheila thrummed …

A Give-Away

For the smallest members of my own family, for Christmas,  I made a little picture book of the farm animals. There is one spare. Just one. Would you like it? It is a collection of favourite images all of which you know well but I think it would make a lovely little gift for a …
