Saturday morning, I slept in, then, did my usual morning routines, feeding the cats, having a cup of tea, saying my morning devotions, etc. I had some dry cereal for breakfast as I was feeling hungry. I replied to blog comments and commented on a couple of other blogs.
Around 1:30 p.m., I happened to look outside and noticed I had a visitor:
Every now and then, the neighbor's chickens fly over the wall into my garden. I didn't think too much about it, but, I didn't want it to eat my zucchini, so, I decided to go outside and check on the zucchini. I noticed the visitor had been on the porch steps, already, because he had left a couple of presents there!
The rooster appeared to be very tame and allowed me to get quite close to him. I thought he would fly back over the wall, but, no, he settled himself down on a pile of leaves under the feijoa tree. I left him there and went to check the zucchini - they are still very small, but, seem to have a tendency to turn yellow at the tips (they are not a yellow variety). I decided to pick three of them:
|Saturday's Zucchini Harvest|
I spent the afternoon video chatting with my daughter (she had gone grocery shopping and to the Japanese store and wanted to show me her purchases) and finalizing the monthly photo challenge blog post. I also called friend A and left her a message, checking on her.
|Rooster Under the Feijoa Tree|
That rooster was too still for my liking, but, I left it as it was. Every now and then, I'd go to the back door and check and it wouldn't have moved.
|Snowball and Mockingbird|

(Yes, that's the watermelon, next to the bird)
It's more likely that a dog attacked the rooster. Maybe even one of their own dogs.
