It rained really hard for the latter part of the day, right as I was finishing the chores, but I had not yet fed the dogs, so I still got soaked. I have to retrieve left overs and police the feedings so the ducks do not demolish the dog food. Yes, the ducks.
They love dog food or rabbit food or anything with corn in it, like ruminants love grain. They stick their bills through the wire to get at the rabbit food in the pens so I have to be sure the food is far enough away that they cannot reach it.
If it is raining tomorrow I will drive out to my friend's nursery to pick out some fruit trees too and then be busy planting for a few days, both flowers and vegetables and the few trees I can afford this year. Fruit trees here run up to a hundred dollars for what costs fifty in Vancouver (my home of 50 years), but bedding plants are triple or four times as much. Tomorrow, hopefully there will be some photos of the gardens in progress. Sleep well dear friends.
