Meet the New Ladies.......

I was pleased that I got all the mulching finished
last week, with all the wonderful rain we had I got it done just in time too.
When I mulch though I have this problem.......I always
make the gardens just that bit bigger than they were, I'm
sure I'm not the only one with this problem though!!!!
The garden below used to be 2 separate gardens and I decided to make it
into 1 big garden, it looks much better this way I think.Meet the new girls.......
This morning Greg decided it was time to get some new
laying hens....So we had a lovely drive around the back roads. We did
get a little lost, but we saw some nice houses so it was worth it..
Our new ladies are just the plain old run of the mill chooks, I would dearly love
to get some pure breed ones. I don't know any one
that sells them in our area so I 'll have to make do for the time being.

The old girls aren't to happy about the new company.

they have been at the door cackling loudly ( I think it might

be a chicken protest) Hopefully they will all get

used to one another shortly.....

I thought I would show you my first attempt at Canal ware..
I am pleased with it, though I have a lot more to learn. When we got
home my book was in the mail box so I
will be able to experiment a lot more now.......
I hope you are all looking forward to the week-end..
I know that some of my fellow Queenslanders will be busy cleaning
up after the rain.......We didn't get any where near as much as S.E QLD.
But the tanks are full and the garden is fresh looking, so we are happy........

Blessings to all.......



  1. Hi Mandy,
    Wow, your plate looks great - very Gypsy/Romney inspired. Wont take you long to master it by the looks. The garden looks great too.

  2. I love your plate! You did such a great job with it and I love the bright colours!

    Ahhh... chooks and a rooster too? I'm turning green with envy, here!
    And with the meat as well. *sigh*
    I don't mind eating it at all - even if I know the beast. ;-)
