The trees are planted, lets just hope they survive the coming gales! Will do photos when the rain stops.

Had a lovely weekend and I'm seriously considering the pros and cons of adding geese to the menagerie.

We've had 3 rainbows today, each met with total excitement and astonishment. For the last one K sat in the back door with no bottoms on and an umbrella over his head lol he's always so sad when they fade away.

Autumn Season/Nature table so far....

I'm collecting ideas for Winter/Yule already.

are here, just ordered some non animal blood/fish/bone feed to feed them with when planting them. Hopefully next year we will have a mini orchard of apples, plums and pears :)
Just got to decide where they are going and get the holes dug.

At about 8.30am this morning I was putting the breakfast stuff in the kitchen and suddenly this amazing rainbow appeared, this camera just doesn't do the vibrancy of the colours justice. The colours were so immediate and vibrated in such a way that if my arms had been just a little longer I would have touched them.

So we excitedly got the camera and ran outside in wellies and PJ's marvelling at the wonders of the world and trying to explain to a 2 year old where rainbows come from. I think I need to get a prism!
The first one is the kitchen view and the second from across the field (please ignore all the weeds we have let run riot lol).

Apple Tree Blessing

Yesterday we went to an Apple Day, blessed trees, had fun and ate parsnip and apple soup! delicious.
Gorgeous weather yesterday meant I admitted defeat with the squashes and started clearing the small veg plot, hopefully next year at least one of the big ones in the field will be planted. Today we spent another gorgeous afternoon inside at a birthday party, nice to celebrate but I was itching to get back outside in the sun.

We went to our first home ed meet up today at a NT farm and we had a lovely day. This is our haul of apples, we collected a bag of windfalls for the pig and a bag of lovely ones to take home!

Acorns, leaves and pheasant feathers are somewhere.....

Where is my camera?

Broody chickens, finished woolies, a bucketload of tom's and I can't find the camera!
Also I have today discovered the babies the Aloe Vera plant produces are called 'pups', never would have guessed that.
