Seasonal weather and greetings!

Obviously, Mother Nature has heard that variety is the spice of life. She’s certainly gifted us with her whole catalogue of winter weather over the past couple of weeks; light rain, heavy rain, rain with and without gale force wind, calm frosty days, crystal clear days, mild and murky days, snow, and ferocious hailstone. Some days we can see the Ridge…

The Ridge

…and some days we can’t.

The view

All of the animals deal with whatever Mother Nature throws at them, each in their own way.

There are pools for bathing.


Perches to reach with your newly grown primary feathers.

There is grassland to forage. (And running to be done if you’re Kevin. Obviously the Guinea has spotted him in the distance!)

Or one can get up close and personal in the hope of a wee treat!

The hens don’t like to get wet, so spend a lot of their time in the Winter Spa They also tend to be ushered to bed as soon as decently possible by Big ‘Don’t even think about wetting MY feathers’ Fella!

There are one or two hens however, who seem to feel that a good downpour enhances one’s hair-do!


Of course, both cats choose to spend the bulk of their time indoors. Needless to say, Patches does it with style!!


So finally, whatever your weather, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and yours a very happy Christmas!

    Can’t see any way one could have anything other than a *happy* Christmas on seeing that exceedingly soft cat tummy inviting friendly petting. 😀

      Oooooh, there’s nothing Patches likes better than a long, languid belly rub – any time of the year!
