Yesterday I went to the nursery in Dimboola and bought a small tree and some ground cover plants. Amazingly, it rained in the afternoon about 5mm, and now it is misty rain this morning. I don’t think the rain was forecast but very welcome all the same.
I have 15 birds now and a few too many. My friend Trenton who lives over in Maldon also raises ducks. From time to time we replenish each other’s stock, so I’ll have to take some over to him in the next couple of months.
Sir Francis has his matrimonial feathers now. It is sad that duck hunting season starts again here soon. At least it is banned in other states.
