Soggy Birds!

Bolly, mid shower

[clicky for biggy]

You can see Dorian’s grey tail at bottom left of this picture, but he didn’t want to be photographed today.  It was so hot again today (33 with a hot dry wind) that I though the birds might enjoy a spray through the bars of their cage.  Bolly and Dorian used to come into the shower with me but I have been forgetting to do that.  They absolutely love getting wet on a hot day,  turning every which way to make sure every feather gets wet.

Just as well I keep my feathers numbered!

Bolly and Dorian’s boy, Yarrow, had his first ever spray mist – and he loved it too, hanging upside down and twisting to get more spray – and ringing his bell when I stopped, cheeky bugger!

Wet is GOOD!

The dog has enjoyed some more ice cubes and I am sitting with a damp towel across my shoulders again.  Far too hot to be trying to nap, unfortunately, so I’m here when I would rather be horizontal…
