The weather these last few days has been truly gorgeous: ice cold, fresh, still and sunny. The perfect type of Winter day on the cusp of Spring. The perfect days for pottering about, tidying stuff up and chopping stuff down. The perfect type of day for pottering about in the garden.
Cerdyn Villa is showing signs of new life and fresh activity.
I’ve been pruning and tidying and Hubby has been putting his new Christmas present to the test and is chainsawing up the trees we had cut down in Autumn, ready for stacking and drying. In Winter 2019 they will provide our central heating.
New hens have arrived. The two older girls, Tammy and Heather (the white one) have settled in and are free roaming alongside all the others in our clutch.
The four new Ayam Cemanis (our Goth girls and boys) are a tad too young to put in with the rest of them. They’re not yet old enough to lay. Only 13 weeks old. One is definitely a cock and that’s fine – he can have his own hareem , but if there’s another cock he’ll need re-homing otherwise all hell will break loose. I’ve got a few weeks before I’ll know and a few more before I need to worry, but just in case, I have a new home lined up . In the meantime they’ve got their own playroom to explore
So…this conifer.. it was dying anyway…..I lopped off all the branches and then Hubby got out his new Parker ... we all love a good power tool and according to him this is an exceptionally good power tool..
