Wabbits and woks ...

Cosmos called to me this morning, 'Da-lella, I want to cuddle a wabbit as he walked towards the guine pig house.  He caught himself as he walked in and with a little self correcting grumble said, 'Ah..ahh...I want to cuddle a cubby-pig please.'

'Cubby pig' feeding time with Cosmos

Anna meeting Alessia .. Milana's little sister 

Milana came along with a little egg in her hand today that she wanted to collect her rocks in.  She was dedicated to this for a good part of the morning.  Every new patch of dirt she'd tip out the old rocks and put in some new ones.  She was so focused and intent, checking every little stone and deciding which one to keep.  Eventually she ended up with her little egg full of elder flowers to take home with her ...

Cosmos picked up some rocks this morning, 'woks' they were getting called.  He had one in his hand when  duck came along for a peek and a peck.  Anna noticed this happening, watched for a moment and then joined in.  Cosmos and Anna stood there handing feeding the ducks rocks for a while.  They'd pick one up, the duck would take it, chomp for a bit, drop it and come in for another.  Cosmos ran a commentary, 'Come on duck, have some more.'  Anna was delighted being so up close and personal with the ducks.  Daisy was totally entertained by the whole thing and turned round in a mouth full of jumble at one point to let me know what she was seeing.

Daisy and Cosmos played on the picnic benches together and both discovered you could poke things through the cracks.  They found a pen and a straw and spent ages posting these things back and forth to each other amidst lots of laughter.  Very cute and very funny.
