There I was, enjoying the heatwave. Working on the computer in the garden and thanking my lucky stars for my wonderful life in general... when... my little hennies stopped wanting to go into their house at night, preferring instead trying to roost in a very small cherry tree where the branches were too thin for all but the tiniest of them. I couldn't figure it out and I couldn't let them stay huddled around the cherry tree base all night where they would be easy pickings for Mr Fox. So I cleaned out the henhouse, special clean and physically put them to bed. The next morning little speckle lay listless and limp on the floor of the henhouse. On closer inspection she wasnt dead, but hardly alive. I put her into a cardboard box and brought her into the house where it was cooler, thinking that perhaps the intense heat had made the henhouse too warm at nights for them. Tried to get her to drink from a syringe but she expired very quickly. I was really baffled and very upset.
It's exciting this time of year, the garden is lush, the veggies are starting to bear fruit and we have a broody hen! This stupid blogger is still not playing ball and not allowing me to embed my video, even though it's saying I can do this.. I click that option and nothing happens- do you think they know I'm going to ditch them in favour of Vlogging on YouTube? 😄🤣 Maybe. Oh well, I apologise but here is the URL for the latest Blog entry.

Huge apologies to faithful readers, I have been incredibly busy and simply neglected the blog. Since last I posted there have been lots of little projects and a visit to the UK as well and then the olive harvest was upon us, Yule festivities and a new year with new plans and projects. Let me see, August was the last post. Well after that I participated in the opening ceremony for the village fiesta, dressing as a Druid and reciting a piece of text about nature and the deep dark woods. I guess as a whole it made sense. It was enjoyable, if a little nerve wracking. Then I concentrated on getting ready for my youngest daughter's wedding in Yorkshire. I made a coat, and a suit, and a waistcoat for Steve, and I felted a hat and knit a new scarf and gloves. I also made a large fascinator/hat thingy.. milinery is not easy but is definitely cheaper than buying a new hat. The wedding was huge fun and a great day and Yorkshire was fabulous, loved it there. All good things co
