Mavis posing prettily yesterday, she knows how to look dainty and delicate.
And Suky has sleeping and dozing to a fine art form.
But they do occasionally drag them selves off the sofa and out of the doggy beds.
The riverside walks this past week have been different every day, from cold and icy to windy and wet with the odd warmer day thrown in for good measure. This photo was taken on Saturdays walk and already after a day of sunshine yesterday and this morning starting gloriously well the large Willow tree is much greener and everything already feels more Spring-like and fresh.
The birds along the riverbank are nesting and as we walk Mavis is tempted over and over to dash to peer in the hedges and borders when she hears them chunnering and pushing through the branches.
Right at the start of the path though, we are warned that some birds must be much more dangerous!!
The house with a lot of land at the side of the river have just added this sign to the other instructions at the start of the riverside path, much to our amusement. It's nice to look over their gate at the new additions. They are a mix of rescued hybrids, like our 'brown girls' and a couple of Skylines, the sort we had that laid the blue eggs. The most recent addition to their mixed flock of chickens and ducks are some Indian Runner ducks, which Mavis finds fascinating to watch as they run across the field in their comically upright position.
There's always something to see as we walk along the riverbank each day, I wonder if the canal-side living will be as entertaining ... gosh I do hope so, I love living by water.
