Where's my mum?
Well so much for the thunder storms they forecast for yesterday. At 11am we had 3 claps of thunder, a little after rumble and a few spit spots of rain. I'm seriously hoping that the rain forecast for much of next week actually materialises as the mugginess is getting to me.
There is a distinct lack of sea breeze that we are normally blessed with on the coast. So last evening due to the lack of rain I have found myself having to water everything in the garden. It was when I was going to and from the water butt that I heard a continuous faint squawking. I searched high and low and eventually found this little chap at the back of the water butt. By the time I got my phone to take a photo he had turned his back on me!
I touched him and he shuffled along so I don't think he can fly. I have left him some water and hope his mum hears his cries and comes to find him. He had two little tufty eye brows and looked very cute. Yesterday was another warm day and I actually managed to complete one side of the tea cosy and I've started the other side
twice three times so far. But I'll get there. The pattern is called moss rib so its nice and stretchy to go over a tea pot. The yarn is a wool mix so it should keep the tea nice and hot.
Hubby found 4 pea pods on the lawn, they had been opened and stripped of the peas inside. I can only presume its birds! I have to say there are lots of pods that I'm hoping will fatten up nicely over the next few weeks. So its another thing I've had to net. Oh how I would love to have a net tunnel.
Off to the market to see if there are any fruit bargains. Next time I see some cheap mangos I would like to make mango chutney. Have a lovely weekend folks Back soon. Tx
