Autumn in the Duchy and things Eastern.
Yesterday morning I was able to get a quick photo of this visitor to the Duchy- a Sparrowhawk we think.It is the first time we have seen a bird of prey in the garden.I look forward to seeing it again soon I hope.
Our one and only sunflower has come into it's glory at last and attracts the bees and hoverflys in great numbers.
Two of our apple trees look like producing the best apple crop since they were planted.The weather has helped greatly this year.We look forward to tasting them soon.
Waiting behind the door on our return, thanks to the postman, this afternoon was a copy of the above eagerly awaited rules from Osprey.They look good and on first reading are filled with great potential. The long term plan is to field a couple of Boshin war period buntai when more figures are available.In the short term I will look out some Ming to get ready to oppose my regular opponent's samurai.Have any of you used the rules yet?I'd be interested to hear of your experiences with them...
