"Easy Riders".

The kittens like sitting on the tyres to give them some height, and they're sheltered from the weather by the guards.

"Gloria", The Ewe.

I have a feeling this lady was someones pet lamb, she loves bread. This is mostly how she waits with her chin resting on the fence wire.

I'm sad these flowers will not be around for another 12 months.

I'm sad that I had only a couple of caterpillars this year, I had 5 plants in all. I'll have to see if I can find out why so few.
