At last a break from my temp assignment and time to catch up with work and blogging. The next two weeks are likely to be busy as I have so many things to do. MOT for the car, visits to the hospital for Mervyn and finally a long overdue appointment with the physiotherapist for my neck problems. Do miss my spineologist who solved everything in a ten minute consultation.
There are four little bears waiting to be dressed and I have finally completed the little meerkat ordered several months ago!
I have noticed that the wild poppies do not seem to grow so prolifically in the wheat fields any more, perhaps due to weed killers or more intensive farming but they do still crop up here and here at the roadside. I found so many tiny plants that had seeded themselves in one of my pot plants and moved them to a corner of the garden. I was amazed at how different the flowers can be as you will see from the following pictures, various shades of deep red, white edges and even an orange flower.
A final picture of Merlin, cats do sleep in the strangest places.............
To end on a positive note, English badgers would seem to have won a slight reprieve and the planned cull is to be delayed until next year. So sad that man cannot live in harmony with nature and animals.
Until next time...............
