I could see something walking around behind the apple tree this morning.
The clouds blew in from north last night and saved us from yet another night with frost. Well it had looked better if everything had been covered by frost to be honest but one can’t get it all as they say. But just because we didn’t have frost it didn’t mean it was especially warm, there’s a weak but cold wind blowing so the fire has been burning all day in the stove.
It’s way too early to start feeding them but I think it was apples she really wanted.
Something kept annoying her at her back, a moose fly perhaps.
I think it might be Tiny, still small and a bit too thin.
I thought I should bake a rosemary rye bread since I had the fire on but it turned out that I don’t have enough flour, I don’t even have enough for an apple pie but it might just be enough for a few pancakes🙂 I made some gooseberry jam a few weeks ago and it would be nice to have that to the pancakes.
We walked down to the creek again this morning, no sign of any beavers but I think I found one of the entrances to their home! It’s actually easier to see it in the photo than in real life but I wonder how they’ll disguise it when all the leafs fall of the trees. I’ve read that they usually disguise the entrances rather well.
I had to hold a tree trunk hard and lean out over the creek to take this and next photo, without any autofocus🙂
I had to walk out on this rotten bridge (not the right word but I really can’t find the right name for it so bridge will have to do🙂 ) to be able to take the next photo. I thought it would break in the middle while I was out on it🙂
We went to the bog this afternoon instead and I could see a man dressed in a reflective vest down the road towards the creek, he usually wears that when they hunt so I guess they are looking for deers now. Kind of stupid really tp start shooting so close to the moose hunting season since I haven’t heard a shot in the closest hunting areas. My guess is that the moose will move to areas where they can’t hear a lot of shooting going on. But so far I’ve heard nothing.
This is a place where the beavers walk up on land a lot, the grass always looks as someone has walked on it all night.
So I started to watch the other side thoroughly and there it was, an entrance or escape hole🙂 It’s almost impossible to see it but it shows much better in this photo.
I had a visitor here this morning, a doe🙂 I couldn’t see who it was but I could see that it wasn’t Doris the Doe. She has a long rip in her left ear and this one didn’t. I thought she looked a bit thin though, not a good sign this early in autumn.
Still lots of moose flies out by the bog, signs showed the moose had been there a lot so I guess that’s the reason. But I had hoped they all had frozen to death by now.
It’s time to make a pot of tea, give the dogs their food and after that watch Grimm at channel six.
Have a great day!
