I have just been up a tree to fetch a frightened Minstrel. We'd been looking for an hour or so after realising we hadn't seen her for several hours. She's really good at trees and roofs so we reckon she must have run up the tree to escape from Aiko, the greyhound/retriever dog next door with strong prey instincts and then not been able to get down because, Crikey!, there' s a horse down there too and a pony and a mare!
Had to get our neighbour to turn off his electric fence and then climb a very dodgy ladder and then come down one handed clutching a wriggly kit. Not good at 27! She has now had a good feed and is curled up close on the back of the sofa. Cosmos has slept all day despite our best efforts.
Got 5 roses potted on to their next containers and a wee clem and the latest rhubarb and the bisexual kiwi plus 11 rose cuttings I took at the last minute before we left Belgium - 2 Teasing Georgias, 3 Queen of Sweden, 1 Will Shakespeare, 1 Graham Thomas and 4 unidentified cos the writing's faded on their pots.
Sounds like a good day for you Busy. I take it this chap is your usual reliable house-sitter.
Dove - those buns look good. Must have a go at some.
Yvie - great looking cake and GD too.
Time to cook dinner.
