Well, my barren and desolate garden has turned out to be not so barren and desolate after all, although I still hesitate about the word ‘garden’… the recent summer sun has resulted in myriad flowers springing up, all meadow-like and truly beautiful.
I’m trying to remember where they all are -the honeysuckle, the wild sweet peas- so that they can be incorporated into our plans for the outside space.
Sadly we lost another chicken, probably to a fox. Poor grey chicken was so lonely Oli was dispatched to buy another Leghorn cross (aka white egg laying machine), and appeared with Leggy Mark 2 and a teeny bantam cockerel, who was a freebie.
He’s still very young and a bit shy, but I’m confident he will come into his own and protect his gigantic lady friends from all foes.
I promise you, in between house renovations:
child-rearing and general life chaos, I am crafting. I am knitting a gift, excruciatingly slowly and painfully, and the birthday it was for has long since passed. It’s looking slightly Christmassy now. Speaking of which, I plan to start my Christmas fabric advent calendars soon. I am hoping to make 6, so if you’re interested, just get in touch, either via the blog or email: email@example.com
Prepare yourself for lots of unseasonable Christmas decorations and lots of moaning. Och, I love them really…
I certainly love summer.
