November, 2012, a baby blackbird was in the garden, Felicity ventured, sniffed, jumped back, and finally left it to fly away.
The other day, on her short legs, she raced inside, from the small pond area, across the lawn, up the steps, and sat under the dining table. Dangling from her mouth was a small rabbit. She held it so gently. There is a family living there among the agapanthus, our Ginger Boy sits and studies the area so closely. This small bundle of fur sat, ran into the other room, hid under Hugh’s chair, scuttled round, Felicity tried to follow, not intent on anything but a game. Finally Hugh caught it, I held it in a towel, and talked gently, telling it that safety was down the track, in long grass, with some sunshine. 20minutes later, it had walked away. All was safe. One photo, all the others too blurry, how can you hold a camera, get a good shot, try to catch a rabbit, kneel on the floor, huddle round the fireplace, all at the same time???
That was the other day, today our tree feller arrived, one bare tree trunk, one TALL pine, and a gum, all done safely, falling in the exact place where they should. Lots more firewood, such is life, I can see some serious days of outside work coming. We have lots of help for the cutting, and splitting, thank goodness.Safety meant I had to be a long way away, even at that distance the crash was so loud.
To the right of the truck, in the third photo,is the red plane, Hugh made this, the propeller spins furiously when the wind blows, and we know the direction as well. So many visitors have asked if he was a pilot at some time? NO, but he would have so liked to.
Quotation of the day, author unknown
“ Like the trees, stand tall,
be not afraid to go out on a limb,
be happy with how others see you ,
and enjoy the view from up high,.”
