I must tell you - I am enjoying these unseasonably warm days. Although, if it were just a scooch cooler (sweater weather) I would be in heaven. Regardless, I find myself spending hours outside, puttering around the garden and hanging out with the animals. These days will be short-lived, I am sure.
Yesterday I worked in the garden, doing one last weeding and pulling the skeletal remains of pepper and tomato plants. Everything that I pull out gets composted at the edge of the woods, so that all of the nutrients return to the earth. Today I plan on covering my garden boxes with a thick layer of rich compost for the winter... my beloved garden will be tucked in under a thick winter blanket (of poo!).
I am happy to tell you that yesterday was Daphne's last dressing change.
The area of her abscess is no longer painful, so I will just coat her hooves with a waterproof liquid (Coppertox) recommended by Dr. Becky. Daphne has been such a trooper with the whole ordeal. Thankfully, that chapter has come to a close.
Yesterday was moving day for the three ducklings (now basically adults). Hubbs took two of them and I carried one of them (and drove the gator)... as we transported...
