So what a glorious sunny weekend for all our events and markets! Wimbledon market was wonderful as usual though it did entail getting up at a ridiculously early hour. As I have no Francesca any more, I am feeding all the babies and big boys while David concentrates on the milking. I had to have all my babies finished and the van loaded by 6.30am in order to get away to market on time. It takes about 3 hours to feed everyone in the morning .. so you can work out the rest for yourself!!! Yawn ....
There were some extra plant stalls at Wimbledon this week which made for a great display in the sunshine. And my friends at Sorbitium Ices were doing an absolutely roaring trade with their delicious ice creams. GeeGee Parrot's Mama came to visit as usual so we enjoyed an ice cream together in the shade. Very pleasant, I can tell you. How that woman manages to look so damn elegant all the time beats me! Come wind, rain or belting sunshine, she always looks so lovely.
Here's a few shots of the market stalls on Saturday:

Mum Johari often likes to watch and check that we are feeding her babies properly:
Finally for today, a short video of Saffron with her two little chaps taken last week. Saffron was having a well-deserved lie down, but babies decided that they wanted her to stand up (presumably so that they could feed). This is the technique for getting mum up on her feet:
