The sky was a kaleidoscope yesterday. Frequently shaken.
There was no rain to speak of. Just the occasional rise in humidity as the clouds formed and reformed and moved off and moved in then moved off above us.
(I almost had to post without my photos this morning – they are increasingly slow to load into my media file- sometimes as long as an hour – there is something wrong with my system and I need to focus on it later today – but it is wasting my time and I hate to waste time! I will put my favourite up onto Instagram so scroll down and see it there soon. Problems with programs is SO BORING!)
Anna and I got all the work done that we wanted done then raided the garden and cooked good food.
Today I will begin to retrain the ducks to their new area in the barn. We have cleaned in the barn and sorted things out and I want to herd the ducks into the barn at night time now. I will start that tonight but I am not sure if it will work. They will go where they are herded of course. So I will begin with feeding them in there every evening. They graze right beside the barn door I want them to come and go from but it will be interesting to see if they stay in there or just fly back out in the night and return to their old sleeping area. They have outgrown their little shelter in the field though.
Three eggs were laid yesterday. So they need to move – that space is way too small for ducks to be waddling about and laying and stepping on each others eggs with their big flat feet.
WEATHER: Clear and hot. I will be watering gardens this morning!
