Its been a frantic couple of weeks leading up to Christmas but I finally managed to get away to the island for the holidays. I have a few things planned on the bay and some projects to get finished in the garden.
The weather has turned wet and miserable here and the forecast is telling us to expect more of the same for at least another week. I managed to get some more turf in and at least the rain is giving it a good start.
I had a wet little visitor today. This little butcher bird took refuge from the rain under the porch. He was enviously looking at me sitting in the dry comfort of the shack. When the downpour finished he moved to the staircase pillar. I went out for a photo and I think he was too waterlogged to mind.
He was probably thinking, “damn the paparazzi”
