The garden is so beautiful at this time of year. I have taken photos of a walk up the garden but first a quick update of chicken news.
Vanilla has come out of her broody spell after only three days this time which I am pleased about. Ebony is still broody but she is docile and easy to lift and perches at bedtime when I close the nest boxes.
Smoke started laying again today so it is good to have another good layer back again. It is just over two weeks since she last laid.
Some of our pots were looking tired so we have just rejuvenated them with a bit of colour.
This is my spot for sitting in the sun overlooking the garden. Not today though as it is drizzling.
The chicken’s strip has really filled in this year. They still have a row of dandelions next to the weld mesh but they are now hidden by the plants. The fox glove and antirrhinums self seeded in the garden and I transplanted them to here last year.
I think this is my favourite time of year for the garden. Everything looks lush and full with splashes of colour. I love to sit in the garden in the sun but the garden desperately needed this rainy day.
