It seems like I spend most of my time talking about ducks and chickens, but yesterday was a sad day as one of our original ducks, Lily, has gone off to the big duckpond in the sky. We weren't sure exactly how old she was, but we had her for over four years- the people that had her before had named her the Reverend Mother ( and Billy was known as Colonel Gadaffy, so those names soon got changed ! ) As for those pesky chickens, they now have their own run, although they seem to be in cahoots with the sheep, who scratch their bums against the door of the run, and let the birds out....
Rachel has been busy planting loads of herbs in the courtyard at the front of the cottage, and its beginning to look a bit tidier.
