Because you all live in my yesterday. Here are the skies from yesterday’s yesterday – the day before that day – they were magnificent. They seemed to want to speak or warn. Omenish. Full of portent. But the skies words were too slow. Too low. Too nebulous. I watched but could not hear. Like a dog staring you straight in the eye but you are not quite sure what he is trying to say.
Yesterday we shifted the Plonkers from the last sunflower field. They have cleared it right down to the soil and then they began to dig under the fences for the grass on the other side and we all know what that leads to.
So now they are back in the Rat House field which is fenced specifically for heavier hogs.
I am going to shift the duck pond to under the willow by the barn so the ducks are closer to their new home. The willow will like that. The ducks like the water no matter where it is. And it will help with training the ducks to lay in the barn – five eggs yesterday! Hopefully the move will help with settling them to sleep in the barn in the evenings out of the winter weather. I have the knowledge of winter coming positioned in the corner of my eye but I have no wish to face winter head on yet. I am trying to keep my winter preparations secret from myself. I feel a certain dread this time – I don’t know why.
The ladybirds are beginning to bite, the corn is drying and the beans have begun to turn golden. But I am still in late summer thank you very much.
After the harvest Tima and Tane and Wai will be allowed to wander again. But not yet little fat pig.
I hope you have a lovely day.
