NO RAIN..... NEW ARRIVAL
The area has seen no rain since the beginning of June ..... due to the alkalinity of the soil we have to use hosepipes! much to the joy of this new arrival who rushes around uncoiling every hose she can find. Laila Cem's daughter gave her this name when she was just ten days old and bottle fed. .Now 4 months she weighs 2 kilos...parenthood speculations range from Husky to German Shepherd to Jack Russell... she is small with large ears. Is it possible to decode a dogs DNA?
I did a DNA swab test via an American site.... expecting to be simply Scottish Irish Scandinavian.....only to discover Berber and Nigerian! So never go by the looks of anything or take anything for granted. Who would have thought Europe would crumble or Turkey would become a one party democracy....
We have had happy times at Blacktree this year....less arrivals but lovely people....we watched the bloodfull moon....took picnics into the woods...kids made gorgeous mosaics. The road to the Oludeniz beach is at last really being asphalted....most people applause this but some have regrets......the road will become part of the coastal highway joining beach to beach and resort to resort. Tina arrived yesterday. She said she read the Blacktree blog.....thinking no one did I do not often write anything ...... but just one reader does the trick......and will continue. For those that know that I spend my winters in London...well I no longer will as I have exchanged a one bedroom there for a four bedroom in Liverpool.....Liverpool is worth a visit....and I have a spare room!
