A watery day here with the sky saturated with the stuff, which sprays down and mists up the crevices in the hills. Now that the ducks know about water they queue up for their twice daily supervised swimming lessons
Today their bath was seasoned with chopped up lettuce
after which is was time to preen the difficult to reach spots
Construction proceeds on providing for the water needs of Spot and Bert. We wonder if this is can do the job without being excavated
After using the thoughtfully provided concrete nesting spot for her first brood the swallow is bringing up family number two on a more precarious ledge
although the nest is fully lined with hen feathers.
The lack of sun means the tomatoes are taking an eternity to ripen
Elsewhere on the plot today
