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.
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.
Well even when you weigh 45kg you sometimes need a cuddle at the end of a long working day on farm!
Many hands make light work especially if you are 6ft 5inches tall and can lift mountains!
I know I said I would not mention them again.. but anyone for courgettes? We have exhausted our enthusiasm for them and are getting literally bucket loads per day off them..
I always enjoy watching the “cria run” at dusk but their playful antics always have me laughing..
Well if you have never lead an Alpaca before..
or been up close to a very big horse, this is the place for you..
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!!
Beautiful sunsets are a sight to behold in the “big sky” open Cotswolds.. but noticeably (sadly) the nights are also getting darker quicker – no problem for the trusty Kubota with its night lights LOL
Welcome August, let us hope the weather is more settled?
What better way to welcome August than a quick squizz at our beautiful stud boy Earl Grey
