Oh Joonie here are you envying me and I envy you! A bird to talk to and nothing terrifying happening. I think I could do with some boredom! And - the closest I get to a bird to talk to is either through the window at the back of the yard, OR a frozen chicken on the way between freezer and oven, poor thing. They have no feathers either!
Yesterday I watched Mum putting tomato seedlings into the ground. She has put bottles in so she can pour water into them and it gets down into the soil instead of evaporating from the surface. She said she will give it a good watering today on the garden bed (it was supposed to rain over night but it was just a light shower) and then put mulch all over it, thickly. She said I can watch her plant little seeds in the umbrella sort of plastic greenhouse, too, That’s the sort of excitement I like, Joonie, not falling off my perch!
Say hello to Sammy for me – he will settle in soon I hope? He is not sort of decrepit, is he? Bet he has feathers..
