dutch husband went off on a ride into the country side for the day..and I spent time with my girls
[and if you would like to see the girls in action..they are movie stars on youtube: my girls on youtube ]
I did try to take a photo of Pearl while she was laying an egg, but she flapped her wings and got most indignant about being on show, so I left her in peace.
I spent time giving my lavender a hair cut [i tend to be quite particular when pruning my lavender.. I do it stem, by stem. in a meditative way.. quietening my spirit as I do so. the lavender seems to thrive on this treatment, rewarding me often, with flower spikes aplenty] I also spent a few hours, feeding and mulching my apple trees in readiness for autumn. I love this time of year. it is most probably my favourite season... what is yours?
