While Annie and I were hard at work in the garden, Greg and Malcolm were digging a diversion ditch around the barn to try and stem the predicted flood that we are expecting this weekend. Typically poor Malcolm digs holes and fills them in on his holiday, unusually this time he just dug…and dug…and dug! Now we wait apprehensively for the rain to start. Thanks Annie and Malc…only another 13 holes Malc !
The bull came to Daisy yesterday….well not exactly the four legged head tail and horns type of bull…..more the syringe type but hopefully her three weekly “wanting” episodes will be over and she will spend the Winter cultivating her unborn Spring calf. If the syringe worked…..the valley will no longer resound with her bawls and bellows and a little black Daisy look alike will be born in April. We watch and wait.
Time to go, take care, keep safe M
