Feathers and Friends

I thought I'd show you our pet guinea fowls, Spot and Dot. They arrived around eight years ago (don't know where they came from), and decided to stay. Spot and Dot have beautiful spotted feathers. They are strange-looking birds with quite comical white faces (which look like they have rather badly applied clown make-up on).

On thursday, I met up with the lovely Sandrine for coffee in town. Sandrine creates beautiful hats and scarfs - such a talented gal! , check out her great blog. I gave her some of the guinea fowl feathers I had been collecting from Spot & Dot.
It was so nice to meet another crafty blogger.
Hope you all had a great weekend!

Dot and Spot are very cute! Do you have a place for them in your garden?
Thanks for your nice email, Sandi, I hope very soon things will come back to normal again.

I always wondered what a guinea fowl looked like - actually quite cute. How nice of you to gather the feathers for Sandrine!

Do they lay eggs and how old will they be? It is just great to meet a bloggy friend.

Aren't they funny looking characters. Is it true they keep snakes away????? I was told that and have been looking out for some.
