Damp, humid and cloudy made a morning working in the garden enjoyable. At least a hundred white cedars have germinated amongst the pineapples so it will take another couple of hours to transplant them.
Very busy week visitor ways. Hannah and Tom bringing me two pullets, maybe 12 weeks old, which Tom found and caught next to a road-side. More when I manage to get a decent photo of them. First night here two of the other 5 hens were very vocal, until dark, after their introduction to the hen house. I perched them over-night and today they seem quite happily settled. The older hens are ignoring them. I will let them out-side after a week of being penned.
We should not want everything to be subject to our will, but to good sense.
