Oct ~ Nov Due to care issues around my dad I haven't sown any broad beans or wheat this autumn which is a bit frustrating.
Also after being away so much, deer have got in and eaten all the chard and the tops of the broccoli and kale.
Then there's all the ground that has been disturbed. At first I thought it may be a badger but seeing a hole in the greenhouse of some four inches, too big for a rat I'm wondering if there is a stoat or weasel. There are droppings in he greenhouse similar to rat's but possibly larger. ???
Dec ~ Jan Most days out checking on dad at Topoint until death on 6th Jan. Since then have done some landscaping around a walnut tree but weather so wet the ground is too delicate to walk on nmost days. Lets see what February brings
Whereas vegetation is a fairly well defined word, try to do so, intelligence is not. Conciousness is yet another realm of being that may be devoid of form and reason.
Intelligence appears at least to have reason. The mind is no doubt a place where intelligence appears to dwell but it is less clear that such is restricted to the head or more especially the brain.
