    Shadow is the biggest, because eldest by several days. Summer I think of as one of the twins, & seems to be the boldest of the two “little ones” (i.e. is not fearful of me being there if adults are present). River is more timid, hangs back under cover if i’m watching, & takes quite a bit more being called by the adults before joining the group.

    Bluey often just stands guard, on lookout, and lets Sweety & Alex do most of the feeding.
    Sweety, at this moment above, is standing by my left foot on my side of the fence, looking up & waiting, waiting, waiting. She thinks she’s special and should be allowed to have her breakfast wheat in peace. She joined them later.

    I can’t uptick because that has vanished for some reason.

    I am sitting here in a newly made caftan, lovely and cool. The material doesn’t drape well, as it’s new, but really. these garments are the only thing for summer wear. They don’t need a pattern, take hardly any time to make and they are the nicest thing I know for lounging around in.

    I read something surprising today; in 1974 petrol cost 72p a gallon. That must have been phenomenal then.
