Clémentine, reprise.


Clémentine is now living in the old rabbit's cage in the kitchen, since she is pooing all over the place, and her need for constant contact with C is slightly eased.  C suggested I brought my camera to take pictures of her, so after an hour of verb tables and cloze exercises with the past simple, we went outside for a photo shoot.

This wasn't always easy,


Clémentine moves rather fast now,




her feet and legs are very much bigger and stronger, one of the most noticeable changes is how firm she now is on them.


She enjoys grazing on the lawn.


C is quite optimistic that she is a she; apparently her down is rather darker than it might be if she were a gander.  C's cousins have a gander, with a disabled wing, and he is still cherished and lives with them as a pet, though he give the odd peck, so whatever happens, Clémentine, or Clément, is here to stay, and won't be made to go and live with the hens, since they are méchantes, though she may have to have a wing clipped to keep her the right side of the garden wall



She may well be a better guard dog than Rubi, who is the soppiest dog in the world.

Dear creatures.

Soppy dogs and growing ducks. A flavor of bliss.

Why does Clementine remind me of fondue au chocolat?
Lovely Cs in your neighbourhood.

Oh, how adorable! Just checked back and saw the first photo - so cute! We've seen a few geese families around these parts recently (alas, an overabundance of Canadian geese who make rather a mess of our parks and grassy areas, but hard to not love the little goslings).

Clementine's curiosity is engaging. It appeals I think because it is something we recognise in ourselves. That's often the case with other animals at least where I am concerned

I'm warming to the wee creature (and I am surprised because I was once chased down the middle of the village by an entire cohort of mad geese ... yes, it was my fault, but that's another story).

The look on the face of C is wonderful to behold.

Clémentine est prête à nager maintenant. Ses pattes sont déjà bien larges . Elle est très jolie.
Dimanche nous avions une faisane à pâturer sur notre pelouse. Incroyable!
Bon Après-midi

Oh, this is just precious. How wonderful to be able to be in close contact with more than just dogs and cats. (Though I'm so very thankful for them!)

Tell you what, that's made me go broody!
