Well spring is finally fully here and my flowers are blooming beautifully.
The peonies are nearly finished, but have been magnificent! My favourite flower.
One of the downsides of springtime is that all the small animals are out and about..... Sophie has been bringing me her spoils of hunting and displaying them in front of the arriere cuisine door. Much as I love her, I wish she wouldn't kill the lerots. They are super cute and completely harmless. Mice and rats I have no problem with her killing. She is, after all, a farm cat.
Yesterday she was making her calling noises to alert me to the fact she had something for me... I could not find her at first, then eventually saw she was under the car. Her behaviour was a bit peculiar, and I was wondering what was up..... till I saw she had caught a snake and was proudly bringing it to me. Hmmm... Thanks, but no thanks Sophie. I called out to Wayne who came and quickly dispatched it whilst I distracted Sophie and told her what a big brave girl she was and thanked her for my "present".
Oh well, at least the snakes here are nothing compared to what we grew up with in Australia........
No photos as did not think you would like to see a "spiflicated" snake..... you're welcome.
