Thank you for all the lovely woo hoo's and good wishes yesterday - I really appreciate the support! And, well done for a bit of delurking too :) nice to see a few delurked comments! I'll take a photo or two of my wellie dance and I'll share it - I promise. Aside a bit of seed action waking with their little alarm clocks and my bad singing - there is nowt much happenning - OOT THERE at the moment. I found a picture of a lovely dog wood Cornus alba from last year on a trip south which looked amazing - so that cheered me up!
I've been pondering a couple of things today........................
1 - Will I turn my central round bed in the garden out the sunny room window into a pond? It often got like that anyway - and the bird obilesk which I tried - um ended up in the fence after the first bad gale (but thankingfully not through the sunny room window!). I can't have any height here really due to the wind so a tree/shrub or anything normal for 'height' I think is an no no. I put three hebes in the bed and they went almost immediately.
|I did a little nice round bed and put in a bird feeding thingmy - but too tall, it got reduced to a bit wee'r|
What do you think?
2 - When will my hens go back into their summer enclosure or will I make sure I can keep them out the garden with my superdooper new fences (photos unlikely as its quite shoddy at the moment!!) which means they are likely to pop into the house now and again....................
Its quite nice seeing them every morning - but I'm still not sure of the mess they make - maybe for the summer they need a bit more containing?
3 - Do campervans make good cold frames/greenhouses? As the van is out there at the moment with a rather large 1m square boot - with lovely windows - would it make a good cold greenhouse for a few weeks - or is that a step too far? Would Darwin object or enjoy it? Mr Flowers will of course be shaking his head at the very idea of even thinking of it! I don't think it will get too moist inside? Only with a few things in there transitioning to the main garden......?
Only for a few weeks you understand, a month at the most and if we have then on trays - they can come out of there when we have an adventure and put them in the house! Would seedlings really appreciate the experience of being in a VW camper for a bit? Maybe it would make a rather lovely vintage 'unique' temporary greenhouse................?! Other folk here use old buses as greenhouses, they seem quite effective, but of course they are undrivable, not like darwin!
A step too far? Maybe..........
4 -Will we invest in a new hen mansion for the hens or make a type of shabby chic set of apartments from all the little hen houses we have - a bit like renovating an old complex and putting in a bit new extensions?
I'm still thinking this through as it would be nice to have somewhere nice for them - but then again - I might try and find an old shed on freecycle and add to the ecclectic beach hut type shabby chic feel........better recycling too! I can make them little walk ways to each 'complex'?
New or old, needs a bit more thought.............!
5 - Will having been awarded a stylish blogger award (after I picked myself up from the floor) from a few lovely folk (and I will post a good reply to them soon and thank you very much)...............Will this improve my own style personal potential? I think probably not or maybe for my hats.................!
I'd happily have a stylish hat award :) and many thanks for the stylish blogger award - quite surprised but chuffed.
