New Additions

We have two new additions to our little flock.....

Henrietta above and Hermione below...

They are light sussex and quite large hens compared to our regular brown Warrens and, great excitement, Henrietta is broody. Pictured above she is sitting on five hopefully fertile eggs provided by a friend who has a flock running with two cocks. So fingers crossed, in approx 18 days from now we may have some chicklets!

Meanwhile the garden is beginning to flourish. Just look at my little applets above. Aren't they cute?

This is a clematis called Graham something-or-other planted in September and looking lovely at the moment.

Here is our biggest strawberry "Royal Sovereign" just ready to turn hopefully.

Pea pods they are a plenty...can't wait to sample them.

And the boys have had loads of fun chasing bubbles. (Just look at my view, aren't I lucky?)
Hope you all had good weekends too.


  1. How lovely to have some new additions, and I love the names you've given them. It will be exciting if you get some chicks. Your garden is looking very productive. We've just had the first of our strawberries at the weekend.

  2. Love your view. The boys look like they are having a great time. My grandson Joshua came to stay this weekend we had fun with bubbles to.Fingers crossed for chicks.
