Peahens and mud
We are finally having what I call a proper winter, rubber boots on before you step out the door, pea hens being harried by the pea cock, almost time for mating and mud in most places, and if not mud a swamp under foot. We havent quite broken the record for July rain but close enough. The last few winters certainly havent been very wet and it is good to see creeks overflowing and springs being re charged. I havent been feeling 100% and being on antibiotics has slowed me down but I did get to see my eye girl this morning and I have a cataract forming well, she thinks another 6 to 12 months. Of course now she has told me that she was surprised that I could see so well I could just fall in a heap and not see at all!! I am tidying up, probably a defense mechanism.
