wee Abbey had an eye infection which has now cleared up. while we were ongoing with ointment I tied her forelock up in a plait , and then left it in for another week.. nice curly hair now... bless her.

lots of mushrooms growing on the muck heap at the farm... no idea what kind they are, and they're quite big.. about six inches tall some of them.

''rescued crocus'' from February 29th 2008

2008 was a leap year like this one. I wrote ''a quick walk round the rainy wind blown garden, the helebores are flowering beautifully, snowdrops, crocus and daffodills, primrose, pulmonaria.....too wet to take the camera outside! I found a crocus with its stem snapped, and it was rolled up tightly so I brought it in and plonked it in a jar, within 20 minutes it had opened up, lovely!''
I do miss my garden, and hope to have another one someday.

Abbey is mostly living out in the field now, she comes in overnight once or twice a week to get dried off, cleaned up and have her legs greased up.. waterproofing...  the weather is constantly dull and wet and the fields are sodden.
I have taken these photos with an old fuji camera that someone gave me. its in good working order though I find its 'technology' a bit stodgy and irritating... never look a gift horse in the mouth!! its a camera and it works!! and will have to be satisfied with it until I can raise some funds for something newer.
