Please don’t tell the children. When Mr Uphilldowndale opened the kitchen door yesterday morning, Jammy the kitten-cat shot past with a baby rabbit in his mouth, he shot through the hall and jumped up on to the widow ledge where he hissed loudly and defensively over his catch. Sadly it was a very dead rabbit; not the sort of Easter gift we were hoping for.
Today the sun has shone, a beautiful spring day, there has been a frog fest going on up at the pond, Spud the dog found it very exciting
Which wasn’t very helpful to me, trying to take frog photos.
I had to make do with them swimming below the surface.
The bees were a bit more ‘up front’
The chickens were a little too keen on eating my beautiful spring flowers
However, Roxanne the little black hen has surprised us all this week by laying three eggs. The first since she and Rocky moved in last September. Excellent.
