|Please excuse messy, weedy garden beds, I have big plans for them very soon!|
How's your weekend been going?
We have had a good one, Andre had his friends around for a birthday gaming marathon on Friday night, they did manage a few hours sleep so it was all good.
Last night I had dinner with a bunch of local girls, lots of food and chatting and a great evening catching up with some lovely ladies. Also had a few glasses of some delicious pear cider, think I've found my new poison! haha...
Anyway, we went out today for fish and chips in Sorrento, and when we arrived home I found we had a feathered visitor. This gorgeous girl had flown into our backyard and wanted to make friends with our chookies.
She took quite a while figuring out how to join the girls in their yard, but eventually she gathered her courage and flew over the fence....honking loudly...
..... unfortunately my girls have very bad manners and did all they could to stay as far away as possible to their exotic interloper.
Such a pretty girl! (at least, I think she is a girl)
Look at her beautiful feathers and such vibrant blues ...........
her tail feathers were spectacular.....
....my chookies were feeling a bit like the country mice in their brown speckled feathers, and were most put out as our colourful friend outstayed her welcome. There was much disapproving clucking.
They retreated to the hen house and answered her sad honks with ignore. I had lots of fun taking pictures of the pretty thing.
The penhen (I think this is what she is) was a lovely bird, wandering around the chicken yard until the girls were locked up for the night, I think she got lonely then, so flew up onto our roof, maybe to roost for the night.
I hope she is still around here in the morning, such a welcome visitor, she really brightened up our garden. We have been here for 15 years and have never seen a peacock fly in before. I wonder here she came from.
I hope you have unexpected visitors brighten your day too!
