Cold and wet here today so I'm feeling a little 'cooped up'. The poultry aren't, they are still busy scratching about in the drizzle but I'm inside avoiding getting wet. Some sewing has been done and a cuppa or two have been enjoyed but not much else worth mentioning. Dinner is in the slow cooker, washing is drying ever so slowly on the veranda and because I can, I have been listening to my choice of cd's for much of the day (the girls are back at school).
It is raining in the picture but you can't see the drops, just the grass that I have half mowed, some oats and grazing cattle. The chores that must be done whatever the weather are almost all done. Just have to lock the poultry up for the night and feed them their dinner.
A rather pretty butterfly. I think it is a Wanderer/ Monarch butterfly but really I have not much of a clue about these things. They just look pretty and as long as they aren't causing problems to my edibles then they are very welcome. This one made the most of the shelter near the house because I'm sure they don't like getting wet too much.
Well, it has stopped raining for now so I am heading outdoors while I can. I have a garden bed or two that need attention sometime soon.
