For Meg.

Percy Peacock doesn't often come near the house these days, but this morning he came along with Polly. First time she had been near the house. Mostly they stay in the neighbour's place who feeds them all the time. We don't mind them staying down in the orchard blocks put object to the droppings on the decks or paths. As you can see Percy was trying to impress Polly with his lovely tail.
Red and green look so good together. Straight from my herb garden.

Great peacock photos - they always look a bit scary to me - like they might start chasing! Those radishes and strawberries look yummo.

Yummy - strawbs!!! When we had our farm in Whakatane our neighbours on the next farm had a peacock and hen - gorgeous to watch him strutting and flashing to attract her but crikey could he make some awful noises in the early hours.

Thankyou Ali! What a gorgeous photo of Pery's tail. Shame about the noisy squawking! And the deposits!
Oh yum. Love radishes and strawberries.
