A Wet Weather Day

Poppy sat on the windowsill, watching me trudge round the garden in gumboots, fleece jacket, fleece hat and heavy duty raincoat with the hood up as well. It was wet, the wind was from the South and cold, and I did not see anything that looked photographic at all. There were no new lambs, and too windy to get a good video,  the 3 little ones were not skipping much today, lying close to their mums who sheltered them .

The sky was grey, and rain falling.

At the edge of our boundary the Tutaenui Stream runs to the south.

Here is Ralph’s dog, on the farm a few years ago.He competed in Sheep Dog Trials, even when an old boy.They are loyal, hard working, indispensible. Man’s Best Friend.

Poppy looks a little like the late Stubby chan who was the Guest Home cat. She had every cat color imaginable somewhere in her fur.

Thick mist here all morning and it has just gone quite dark, heavy rain has started and the temperature has dropped.

Well at least you gave Poppy something to look at. Wonder what cats think of us. Looks like a good old dog too. You stay warm and well will try to stay cool.
