Freckles and Willow ventured into what used to be the chicken run, but is now the fruit cage.
All the others were already in there up this end and behind me, keeping out of my way whilst I was busy sweeping out their home
I left them tucking into strawberry leaves whilst I finished their run.
These are tucking in quickly before the 'mob' arrive.
I found an egg under the big flower pot, so I have moved that pot up the top end so whoever laid it can get some peace and privacy if they fancy laying another for me.
At last the turf arrived and was laid on Friday whilst we were out.
It came from a different supplier to doesn't match - but it'll all blend in next year
I spent a backbreaking hour scarifying (some of) the lawn and sweeping up leaves, but had to give up after a while
It'll be covered in leaves again in a day or so.
The wire mesh is to enable me to walk on the grass without doing it any damage, and the black line is where I have filled the gaps with compost.
It looks a lot better than the bare earth.
