Happily Ever After
Life in The Rural Retreat with a beautiful wife, three cats, garden wildlife, a camera, a computer – and increasing amounts about running
A Damp Start To July

July's begun the same way that June ended – moistly. However, it's summer so Bess sticks to her summer routine of outdoor snoozing; most days you'll see her curled up on the lawn, nose tucked beneath her tail, oblivious and impervious to the rain. The garden's birds ignore the sleeping predator and carry on with life, which mostly involves feeding or being fed.
Wrens are not a regular feature of The Rural Retreat's immediate environs (although they're populous enough in the nearby woods) but even they have found something of interest in the garden. Or maybe it's just one adventurous youngster that I've seen on the gate through TBW.
A couple of snaps were worth keeping. With luck there'll be more to come.
Yesterday's market at North Kessock produced the predicted modest returns, although I did make a profit. With luck, that will be boosted this week if the conversation I had with the boss of another possible cards outlet bears fruit. Sadly, he's not interested in wildlife, only Black Isle scenery. More will be revealed if an agreement is reached.
