Well I have had a great day. The sun came out and I spent most of the day outside. I have sowed lots and lots of seeds – I haven’t made a list yet of all of them, but will do when I get time – probably tomorrow as we are due lousy weather.
This afternoon I put together the fencing and set it up in far end of the garden. 25 metres. It was such a sunny afternoon that I got the chickens out and let them run around in it all afternoon whilst Pat was at bowls.
Of course I wasted lots of time watching them, and they really did enjoy themselves. Curiously enough, even though that had all that space to run around in, they spent most of their time along the perimeter. They seem to do that wherever they are once they have finished scratching about.
My daughter in law MSN’d me with a photograph that she took this afternoon – it was snowing in Newcastle – and sunny here! What a difference 250 miles make! By this time next month they will be back down south – in the warm again!
Too eggs from the Norfolk Lasses, Ginger and Adelaide, and two from the London Girls, Pumplkin and Dilly, Freckles had a day off but wasn't any quieter – they seem to match each other egg for egg these days.
Tonight just before it got dark, when we had heavy rain, a rainbow appeared outside the back. I was too close to it to get the whole arc all in one go, and got wet standing outside taking the photo and it never looks at beautiful on camera as it does in real life.
