The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just the body, but the soul. ~ Alfred Austin

The new chooks and a cute frog

The new chooks arrived about 6 o'clock last night. They had a two and a half hour trip to get here and were a bit hot and worse for wear as yesterday was a very hot day. I treated each one for mites before they went into the pen and it wasn't long before they had all had a good drink and something to eat before scratching around the pen and exploring their new yard. Some of them have feathers missing but hopefully with a bit of TLC they will be looking good in no time.

Our one and only surviving chook from the fox attack three months ago.
She is now known as Lucky!

Will have to get lots more greens growing for the girls.

The two Barnavelders out of the group.

A little spider I found in the honeysuckle while watering early yesterday morning.

The Dahlias have started to flower and the bees are happy about that.

When I hung the washing on the line yesterday this cute little frog popped out
from inside a pot sitting nearby. It's good to know there are still some frogs around.

Last night was a shocker think I only managed three maybe three and a half hours sleep all night, feeling very tired and headache-y this morning. Thankfully I only have to go into work for about two hours today. I can't believe it is Christmas next week, this year has really flown by. Enjoy your Wednesday!


  1. I love the the little frog. He looks like he just popped out to hi to you and checking out whats going on in the world.

    1. Hi Sharon, yes he is a very cute frog and he spent ages just sitting there watching the world pass by. I love seeing frogs in the garden :) Thanks for visiting!
