A week into November

and the guineapigs, who have been dutifully moving up and down the grass all summer in their mobile lawnmower

20171107-56

move indoors

20171107-60

as always, they are a little shy

20171107-61

but when nobody is looking they will be out to enjoy their dinner

We hope they are not to warm tonight as they are being hosted in the Juvenile Hedgehog Care Facility where the newly installed insulation adds 10 degrees to the outside temperature

as scything progresses.

Up in the wood

the hydrangea is reaching its mystical stage

Indoors, Ian pays a little visit

and the good news is that we think he might be a she so instead of eating him we can develop a long relationship

So, at two frosts down, winter has not yet begun to bite

In this times of uncertain climate we take one day

20171107-47
