Hello again! Here's some pics from April:
|Rainy walk in the early rape fields|
The new arrivals settling in!
We started with 8 hens - 6 two month olds and 2
ready to lay-ers. Sadly now have only 6.
(The high up coop evidently didn't keep out
ALL the baddies!)
|We used fleece this year on the early veg and it worked|
a treat - although it doesn't look too pretty
|Free wood chips on the path ways|
|Arches for climbing veggies|
|Lots of dandelions for the bees!|
|Now the water pipe was buried we could continue|
work on the patio in front of the barn.
The main reason for building this was to get
rid of stone and rubble from around the garden!
Building the wall /
Starting to fill with stone
Using pretty old bricks
for decorative edging
|Stones, stones everywhere|
|And it's full!|
|Another rape walk in the sunshine|
Starting a few other jobs around …
stone step onto the patio
digging out the fallen retaining wall
|My mum and dad came to stay!|
Obviously we roped them into helping!
Almost 6 hours of solid work later we have a patio!
|To celebrate, we went to Veliko Tarnovo for a day/night|
|Panoramic lift in the hotel!|
|Arbanasi the next morning|
|Back home, chilling on the new patio!|
|We went for a 10 mile walk around the local villages|
