But she had to visit the garden soon, and walked away in disgust, not daring to venture onto the frost.
“ Look at my ears, I said I didn’t want to go out.”
“ No, I will not look at the camera right now”
She stomped off along the pebble path, to a sheltered place in the garden.
The temperature was 0.8 Celsius, but more frost on the lawn.
Yes, mowing circles again, and the first rays on sunlight at the far end.
The Weeping Silver Pear tree is dropping leaves more each day, and even when bare the branches are delicate and graceful. Across the stream, sun shines through, in the foreground, a Kowhai tree has that paler colour.

Lately, we have had many visits here. Thanks to Dave, Lynn and all the team at SRVS, Poppy is on the mend at last.
Southern Rangitikei Veterinary Services, have 2 clinics, one in Marton and the larger one in Bulls. Here there is a purpose built clinic, a team of 3 dedicated equine vets and a equine vet nurse with many years experience.
Their services cover large to small animals,beef, dairy cattle or sheep, horses and ponies, pigs to alpacas and more, and the smaller ones, cats,dogs, turtles,guinea pigs, feathered birds and all else. Dave has had a recent trip to Africa and the photos on the wall show his adventurous time, Elephant sedation, surgery in the outdoors, and standing with a giraffe.Fascinating, it must have been a great trip, many challenges, and wonderful photos.
The pink bandage comes in so many shades, today she has navy paws on the pink, other days it has been fluoro orange .We hope on Thursday the bandage can come off, and I can do dressings at home. The re-attached skin did not adhere, so her wound was now classed as a “ De-gloving”, another anaesthetic, stitches taken out, and then healing started to go at a better pace.
A warm fire, lots of TLC, not so bad after all.
She has adjusted to inside confinement, shut doors, and a litter box very well.
But bring out the cage, and open the door, and SHE KNOWS where she has to go.
