Hi Brian. Just been looking at your website. What an amazing thing to do, just pack up and go like that. It'd not suit me but I admire what you've done. Your plot looks so well maintained and fruitful.

Fooled ya lol, it is a bit unkempt at the moment after a few visitors over the last month but we are getting back on top of things now... Mother natue is being kind this year so looks like we wilkl be eating for free again this year
I'm sue it's not a lifestyle for everyone but it suits us well, we've been having a blast out here for 4 years, hard work and we are still making it up as we go along
Aww! They are so sweet! I never see baby Pheasant around here - though there are plenty of adults!
They're Hungarian Partridge Karen. Sorry, I should have mentioned that with the posting. There were 13 babies yesterday, and 14 the day before. We were getting a kick out of one little one always being behind, but it looks like it got lost, or the magpies got it.
Dare we call them...The Partridge Family?
They're still cute!!
I went down to Albyn's Pond yesterday and was delighted to see the Mallard had nested and she was there with 4 very young ducklings - today there are only 3! It's horrid seeing the little ones disappear!
Collecting eggs from our chicken shed a couple of days ago and discovered that the swallows who have nested in there had left us some squatters.
Cute - three hungy mouths to feed
Cheers Brian... Theres a 4th at the back
So there is! I didn't notice that one either!!
As well as the mealy bugs or wooly vine scale I've got as shown in my previous pic, I've now got this little lot covering a new plant by my front door. I've not had any pests in my garden before so I can only think the weather this year must have something to do with it. The ants like them though. I think they're their pets.
Yes the Ants herd them and milk them, like we do cows, they also do as farmers do, move them on to fresh grazing.
Today, Night Scented Stocks and Pinks. Sweet smells against the door.
This year we've had the best display ever from the clematis plants.
This one is Clematis Alahna & grows amongst the honeysuckle. Normally it produces 4 or 5 big flowers; this year I've counted over 20 & more still to come.
The unlabelled one shown in my PF has succumbed to the wind & rain this week & the blue one is showing signs of wear & tear, but the white ones are still ging strong. Hopefully I'll post some more shots later on.
THough you'd like to see the opuntia cactus from previous post in bloom.
Adrian, we have also had a bumper crop of Clematis blooms this year, it must be the weather, also Lupins and Digitalis have been enormus this year Digitalis well over 6 feet tall.
