The Day of Sun (Not)

The last day of my weekend, and sadly, not sunny. Les Deux laid 9 eggs today. That we know of... However, I saw a raven make off with an egg in its mouth this afternoon. Didn't get a chance to shoot it... Sadly.

But check this out.

Who's the man?

How long do you think that will burn?

Rhubarb is getting bloody massive.

There's a lot of stuff growing in the sunroom. It's going to be a busy season when mum gets back....


  1. Wow! Very impressive log stacking! And my goodness that ruhbarb looks great! You should make a pie. :-)

  2. Levi, you are a hoot. David would probably let you help him cut and stack wood.
