The water plants in the fountain seem to die back over winter and the fish disappear – do fish hibernate? – but now it has started to warm up, four of our previous five fish are out and looking considerably bigger. Did they eat No.5?
Just today I noticed the irises are about to flower. How delightful!
The horses had some crazy action today, belting around at a flat gallop, tails in the air. Even little Walter got his prance on. After they’d settled I gave everyone a big brush and fuss. Quiet time, calm and pleasant.
He’s a good boy, little Walter. He quite enjoys doing the mail run during the week.
