Autumnal Tidy Up - with my feathered friends

I made the most of a damp day by mowing the lawns
In the back garden

Delighting the bantams - as they had lots of insects to eat

I spent a lot if time taking down the climbing bean poles

We were let down  by the turf company yet again - so still no lawn laid here!

It looks so much better now that I have 'mowed  up' the leaves too - but only for a day or so!

Patio table and umbrella wrapped up for the winter

Raised veggie beds have had the climbing beans and courgette plants removed

And of course my feathery 'groupies' were always under my feet

But they are so entertaining, I don't mind a bit

I doubt there is a worm left in these beds!

They went over every inch - and afterwards had dust baths

Here's Dolly who 'bagged' the area on the raised bed where the climbing beans had been.

She rolled around ecstatically for an hour!

It's hard to see in the photo - but she spent about 10 minutes admiring her reflection in the potting shed window - she is so funny


  1. Thank you for my chicken break. It really makes my day.
