Is it not too early in the winter to find a sundog in our sky? The sun and her dog. Ice crystals hanging up there? Refracting and reflecting the low rays.
Do you remember these ones in the Bad Winter of 2014. These are the bleakest and most startling of the sundogs I have ever seen.
The wild garden is still beautiful.
Sheila and Poppy.
I really need to wean these piglets. I mean, I really really need to wean these piglets. I just have to wait for the gate to be fixed across the way so I can move Poppy over there – then I can move Molly in with Sheila. She only lays down for them very occasionally though. Most of the time they are drinking from her as she stands. Molly’s nipples are still fine too. They are gentle piglets.
Last night after Tima should have been tucked up in bed she appeared on the porch peering in through the door. I led her over to the barn where Tane was waiting and shut the big doors so there were no more escapes. Maybe that gate will get fixed today too. Those two are just too heavy for me to work by myself. Waiting on others to do things is difficult for me.
I hope all my American readers have a lovely Thanksgiving today.
