Our two visiting ducks wander about the gardens of the local houses as they feel like. They are untroubled by people and cars but keep a weather eye open for cats. This evening they turned up on the lawn between our house and the drive. They were sheltering from the rain under a Silver Birch tree. So much for ‘nice weather for ducks.’ The lawn is looking a bit brown in places because of the dry weather we have had. We’re entering a more usual mixed weather pattern and we’re going to have sunshine and showers which the gardens and the farmers will appreciate.
