Suspision is growing that the reason the patio is looking such a mess is because 3 little feathered ladies are out there each day re-arranging the pebbles and relocating mud around the garden!
No, really Gladys? I cannot imagine that your feet got that dirty just walking from your house. More likely you took the long way around via the veggie patch and had a quick scout around for worms before you thought you would clean your beak on the patio door.
Of course to leave the gravel along the side of the patio would be a nice little finishing touch to make it all neat and tidy, but why do that when there are so many interesting bugs and things to eat living at the bottom of the gravel, far better to hoof it all out where we can get a good look at things and sift through all the insects.
But away from the house, this is why we no longer go in the cow field!
Some may say that they look cute and adorable, but I say that this is a menacing cow look. Underneath all that lovely coloured fur is a brain which is working out just how exactly it would like to keep all the field of grass to itself and not share it with any human of any kind. Not that I would like any of the grass to take away but try telling that to one of these.
They are also the new tennants of the mystery paddock which was being fenced off the other week, so you would think that as they have twice the space they would spend some time in the other paddock so we could have a play in this field, but no such luck!
Take care all
