You would think having a holiday is about resting, not for the Van der Vlists! Last week was a serious attempt to decimate our to-do-list.
Half of the house has been painted, it has made such a difference, I associated the previous colour with “smokers yellow”...
Look! It’s the cadagi killer... Another one down, still 6 to go.
Yes we do love trees, but love the bees more. This type of tree has been planted extensively in the area in the last 40 years being a hardy, quick growing shade tree. But it’s pollen kills of the native bees hence finding it on councils black list.
All pitching in.
We lost another hen to being egg bound, I found her when she was just passing away. What to do? A would feel like a hypocrite tossing her in the bin and then going to the butcher to buy chicken breasts. She was good for three meals.
