Winter is coming and nights are drawing close at Kensmyth, Clay Meadow

Well the Clocks do not go back yet (Spring forward, Fall back) but the nights are drawing in and the evenings are much cooler. Winter is coming.

I love this time of year bar the angry wasps of course and many regular readers know my favourite song for this time of year is Justin Haywards.. “Forever Autumn”. It comes from the War of the Worlds – what a great Album that was.

Fox warning from Kensmyth Alpaca Clay Meadow

Please be very careful where you encourage Foxes into your garden, or do not discourage them. It is a very short step from lounging in your sunchair by your BBQ to slipping quietly through an opened back door.

A cornered Fox will attack (most wild beasts will) and it will end in tears and hospitalisation. It will also take on your own pets be they Cats or Dogs if cornered by them.

However cute this might look, in a garden in London, Winter is coming and Foxes WILL seek food and shelter..

Please be very careful, Wildlife is great but it IS Wild.

Changing coats at Kensmyth Alpaca, Clay Meadow

Well Fly – aka Kensmyth Kite Flyer – is changing his foal coat and currently looks like he is auditioning for a Mule. Not that I dislike Mules I hasten to add – I meant the colour.

This one has us all guessing – stay chestnut? go bay? go black? just look at those black legs coming, then the neck, the mane – liver chestnut maybe? watch and wait..

meantime – this five bar gate is six inches off the ground and he is on his way height wise!!
