Country air...there's nothing like it

As you may know from my crafting blog, we've just bought a bungalow at the edge of our village which is being adapted for our eldest's wheelchair. And by 'adapted' I mean the entire insides have had to be reshuffled/ knocked down, an extension built and an upstairs added. There are only three walls not being changed....so on a grand scale of things thats a lot of work.

But....

along with the house came the most fantastic plot of land which is divided into three areas...

the traditional garden.....






the allotment.....






and the paddock where the chickens have their stomping ground.







My husband (Stiggy) has a blog which he's been writing since the early days 'One Man and his Chickens' where he tells tales of weekly experiences at the new place from his side of things




which tends to involve power tools, chickens and tractors ,so I thought seeing as more and more time was being spent away from the craft table to get the new place up and running, I'd keep a diary of events from my side of the garden, which has a slightly softer approach to outdoor life than Stiggy's :0) - like Snow White in the forest with all the little birds singing to her (rofl- well maybe not but I'm working on it rofl)....

Hopefully one day I'll be merging events from my craft blog and this one, creating mixed media pieces from inspiration from the garden.
