Sometimes we worry about losing track of the small things dependant on us.
Thankfully Claire has taken responsibility for some
and she is doing a grand job teaching them how to peck
(Although we of course have to take care of Claire. Today she was set up with a nursery in the woodshed as it was a bit chilly outside)
We wish we had given her more eggs rather than hedging our bets. This was the only one of hers that didn’t quite make it
In the incubator hatchee number one
is trying to coax out some company.
If it does they will need the brooder so Minor Ducklings have moved out to a shed
where they seem to be settling in
Major Ducklings also seem happy in their quarters
now that they have a day shelter.
Bees, of course, are an enigma
are they dependent on us or are we dependant on them?
We make our first inspection and are heartened to see pollen being ferried in
The colony must have orientated itself.
Meanwhile the lily moved to the Lake is trying to surface a flower
and nearby we spot a new flower in the meadow.
We will have to add it here – when we know what it is. Can you help?

One thought on “Looking after small things”
The yellow flower is definitely some kind of vetch. Maybe Meadow Vetchling which has thin weedy stalks but I can’t see the leaves or how tall it is….Any help?!
