it seems that my guinea hens have been raptured; i've only dotted feathers on the path up from the studio - i don't know if one or more than one. But fear has scattered them. oh, dear, the end of the world comes often in the hollow; pigeon also seems to have taken off, up or out??!!!
i posted on FB this morning just returned from the Blue House where everything appears ok - I've set out grain for the guineas in their usual spot in case some may have survived the horror of last night. I know there was nothing amiss at 11; as I didn't get home from hearing Anya's band in Blacksburg until after 10. And I saw no feathers on the path last night though it was dark and the stars were particularly vivid.
