There was another set back with himself. He had surgery on Friday past. The wound wasn't healing properly towards the end so a plastic surgeon had to take over. I'm not going to go into all the details just to say that he seems to be on the mend now. It was quite a heavy duty operation and the doctors all told him it would be quite a risk as his heart was weak and "floppy". There was no other choice, it had to be done. He came through with flying colours. I was there with him before the operation and for a few days after. We're back to waiting to get the defibrillator put in, maybe in a week or so, then home. I just hope there are no other set backs as I don't know if himself could handle any more. It's been almost three and a half months in hospital.
This past weekend Gander, which is only an hours drive away got 58 cm. of snow. Eastport where I live, according to my daughter who came to look after things here while I was away, looked like a winter wonderland. Only about ten cm. of snow though. Other than that, spring and early summer has been quite nice. I've gotten a lot of work done in the garden. It never ends though as any gardener will tell you. The trees are leafing out now giving that lovely lacy appearance that I just love.
I got such a trill the other day and was so excited. A huge Raven landed on the platform feeder and went off with almost half a can of cat food. (My cats didn't like that particular brand.). I still can't get over how big she or he was.
I haven't seen the grouse lately. There are a few purple finches hanging about along with fox sparrows, juncos, blue jays, chick a dees, nuthatches, woodpeckers, robins and crows. There have been several squirrels here at the feeders every day. They don't get along very well and occasionally a bit of a fight and chase ensues.
I took some time recently and made a Storm Hag. I've been meaning to do this for some time and finally got around to it. There she is, protected us from storms.
I also made a dream catcher. A very simple one as I'll be hanging it from a tree outside. They wear out after a good length of time and it's been a while since I've made a few to put around the garden.
That's about it for now. Off and at it again.......
