The first day of spring

What a glorious day!  I had a little mooch around the garden, and noticed I actually have some flowers!

The first washing hung out on the line this year- definitely makes me think Spring is coming!

The Girls (as I affectionately call them) are out in the garden free ranging – this is Dhylis, my oldest chicken – a pekin bantam who we’ve had since 2006.   Unfortunately Sherbet, her pal, was camera shy!IMG_0733

Meet Daley – named after a certain Diver – she’s an arucana cross breed and lays me lovely bluey green eggs.

This is Leo’s chicken, Mandaville, we did have Wenlock too  (Phoebe’s chicken) but she died a while ago – and luckily the children haven’t noticed!

And this is my chicken Mo, named after Mo Farrah.  Can you guess when we got them?  There are a few more too which I’ll show you when I can get some decent photos!

Marmalade

This is Marmalade, she used to lay blue eggs too, but hasn’t laid an egg in about a year.

The colour in the garden – a hellibore.

Daffodils looking very spring like in the sunshine.

IMG_0772Before we went on holiday I planted some tomato seeds, only Gardeners delight – which I am growing for the PTA at school, but from nothing a week ago – we now have lots of little plants growing – mission to keep them alive now!

The funny thing is, as I planned to write a blog today – it was going to be an elephant hat pattern that I’d made…. but it seemed too nice a day to not share the sunshine with you.
