If you can't find me - find the chickens. 2010 Eggs Total:56

I am still on a 'high' after spending all day yesterday with my sons, daughter-in-law, and grandson. 

For the first time ever we all went out for a meal to celebrate Mothering Sunday, and it was just perfect - absolutely wonderful.  A memory that will stay with me forever.

Today was the perfect spring day, the sun shone, the wind blew, just right for a bit of gardening. 
Firstly I let the bantams out

Whilst they were happily scratching about, I decided to do a bit of gardening.
When I came home yesterday, a friend had delivered some bags of well rotted manure.

So I dug over my raised beds, got my wheelbarrow out, and trundled the seven bags, and emptied them and dug them in.  My little shadow Gozzie, who follows me around like a faithful puppy, decided to help me dig over the beds too.   So if you can't find me in the garden - look for the bantams and you'll find me.

Then the others came too.

If you want to see them in a video the link is HERE

And at my side is the lovely Gozzie, so we left the others, and did a bit more weeding

We dug over the bed alongside the new vegetable patch
We didn't do a bad job did we - manure is next, but I have to get some more first

Then we tackled this one - again it needs the manure

Next came 'Maxine's' bed

Then a bit more of the gravel bed.  We are going to renew the gravel this year

Then me and Gozzie weeded all along the side of the bungalow

We did a good job didn't we Gozzie

If the weather is dry - me and Gozzie still have more to do!
