Eggs glorious eggs and spring at last

Speckles laid her second egg today only two days after the first and if anything it’s even bigger. Freckles and Cinnamon are laying almost every other day too. I am so impressed with this because looking back on my egg chart, Speckles laid her first two eggs of the year, a week apart last year.

Maybe it’s because everything has started a little later this year. Maybe it’s because we are finally experiencing spring like weather.

It is so good to be getting regular eggs again. Hopefully I won’t need to buy any more eggs for a while.

Today is the first day that it has really felt spring like in the garden. The frost and snow finally left us to be replaced with grey skies and rain. This afternoon the sun was shining. It felt like a surprise and suddenly felt like spring is in the air.


Although these snowdrops are past their best it’s the first time they have really opened as they finally have some sun on them.

    Just brilliant; has been a lovely day today – managed to get Tom, my 3-year-old grandson, very muddy, as he helped me clean out the hen houses!

  2. Glad you had a lovely day too. Bet Tom had a great time helping!

    How nice all thoes eggs, and lovely spring flowers, I was suprised how many flowers were out when I got home yesterday, lots of daffs and crocus. Lovely to come home to.

    • We now have plenty of eggs, ten eggs on my egg roller. We even have the odd crocus but I think the squirrels have had most of them.

      You must be glad to be back home. It was so lovely to see you though and it made my Mother’s Day for us all to be together.
