Happy Valentines Day!

Dear Husband forgot! But luckily lovely 9 yr old daughter made me a gorgeous quirky papier mache heart and a scroll with Robbie Burn's "Love is like a red red rose."

It has been a mild day here and we spent some time outside in the garden with our little flock.....


.....Edwina, Bunty, Ruby, Dorothy, Olive and Maud.

We are preparing a bed against a sheltered south facing wall to try and grow some fruit trees. We have today dug in plenty of old bedding muck from Dad's farm. The girls enjoyed having a good scrat amongst it.

This is the lovely stone wall which was covered in ivy when we arrived here in May last year. We are looking forward to hopefully apples and pears.

And here are the willing helpers...

The under gardeners enjoying a cup of tea and home made ginger biscuit afterwards,

and of course the Head Gardener.

I am not that grey, honestly!!

And 5 lovely fresh eggs too..

Poor Dear Hubby has spent the entire day frantically writing 2500 words for his latest assignment, he's doing an M.Ed. So children, hens, garden, tea and homemade biccies have made for a nice Valentine's day for me.
