Goodbye Becky and George

For those of you not up to date, we started with 4 peacocks collectively known as Becky and George (two peacocks called George and two peahens called Becky). They ended up sharing monikers because we couldn't tell them apart, other than the obvious boy/girl distinction. One of the Becky's then hatched a little chick which looks like a lot like his mother, but we have reason to believe is another George.

Anyway to cut a long story short, Big R, had enough of 5 peacocks and said somethings gotta give. So off went the two Becky's and one of the George's. They have gone to a great friend of ours Carol, who is an amazing mosiac artist with an incredible Gaudi-esque garden. I think they will have a lovely life at her Gingerbread Cottage.

(and we have kept two George's, the father and son, I just hope they don't pine for their Becky's).

In exchange for the birds, I got these amazing peonies and a wonderful dinner with the family.




And, here is a nice picture of the mountain {Mount Wellington} from one morning last week.

Get over it, Big Fan of George & Beckies' - the only thing Carol's garden has been lacking is some peacocks.
