Well, we’ve still got eleven little squeakers and Mummy-Duck is doing a fabulous job. They huddle under her outspread wings and she hisses at me every time I come into her shed to give them fresh water or food. I think they are eating the chick-crumb as the tray looks like someone is dancing in it. I change their water twice a day too as it is dirty so there is probably dancing in that too.
Daisy and I went to check the Minions on our way to work (packing veg for Transition Turriefield) and I saw something I have never seen before – a white Devil’s Bit Scabious flower in their field.
We have tons of purple ones, they are everywhere, but never white and there is more than one plant about, from what I could quickly see. I will have a closer look tomorrow when I have more time.
We did briefly wonder if the white colour was from all the Sudocream we spread on Storm and Tiddles’ noses.
But we agreed it probably wasn’t as they are too busy wiping it on each other instead!
Interesting, though. I shall investigate further tomorrow when I drive over to do their daily check….
… and hug (Newt is now growing his winter coat and resembles a small baby hippopotamus!
More white flowers tomorrow, I think.
