Just a couple of photos for you to look at until I have time to type up today’s blog. I will be a busy as usual today,
Here are a couple of photos of Cocky the pheasant that used to visit out garden on a daily basis with Phyllis one of his many girlfriends.
He was a bit of a character and had a harem of girl that just swooned. He had eight in our garden one spring.
Phyllis got very tame and used to feed out of my hand and lay eggs in the garden. She would sunbathe lying on her side by the fish pond, legs crossed, on the stones, like a little old lady. She would come into the conservatory demanding food with menaces and used to unnerve Pat but I thought it funny.
One day he was dozing off on the sun lounger and Phyllis pecked at his toes and he jumped out of his skin. Funnily enough he has gone off sunbathing outside since then!
Sadly either old age or by some other deed they haven’t visited the past couple of years and when they stopped coming we put in raised flower beds to make it easier for me to garden.
