Happy St. Dunstan's Day!

Which has nothing to do with dun Dexters but according to The Old Farmer's Almanac:

'Traditional weather lore has it that St. Dunstan was a great brewer who sold himself to the devil on the condition that the devil would blight the apple trees to stop the production of cider, Dunstan's rival drink. This is said to be the cause of the wintry blast that usually comes about this time.'

No wintry blast here today as it's going to be very warm and so the cattle will be lounging around in the shade this afternoon. Perhaps they have Dexter daydreams of touring old castles in Ireland, like the bovine in this photo:
