Yesterday was an ordinary day in that people arrived, people left, a few stayed, ducks pushed their boundaries, Molly came home, it rained, plans changed, morphed, reorganized themselves – an ordinary day. But the images I collected for you in the last of the light on that very busy day feel a little touched my magical gods from many denominations and their hallelujah congregations.
I had planned to cut the hay today but the weather has turned and there is rain and storms forecast for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The hay fields are too long already, too seedy, gone too far and now too wet, so I will wait until Friday.
The pig pastures have begun to bloom.
I am still considering keeping this little bull calf as a bull – I know it is probably a dumb idea but he is so stocky and strong and the breeding is so difficult without a bull.
I can consider a wee bit longer.
We will see how it goes with Aunty Del and Tia visiting the big red Angus bull next week.
The broody mauve in the sky of those rain clouds. Today is going to be dry and I wish I could cut my hay but it would be silly. There is rain out there.
I have a surprise gardener visiting for the next four days – he has already got stuck in to John’s tomatoes. Pruning and training them. (And picking them, we had fresh tomato with our spaghetti last night).
Everything got a good watering last night too so the weeding will be easy today.
I hope you have a lovely day.
THE WEATHER: Perfect, of course – now that I have decided not to cut the hay.
