A little break.

I'm just having a short break between frantic bouts of garden maintenance as part of the on going Autumn clean up. The rabbit hutch has been moved, cleaned and repainted, so pictures to come. The rabbits seem quite happy with their fluffy white shavings and a deep bed of straw and it's nice to pull all the old stuff out and start again with fresh for the new season. The flower beds are being weeded and simplified and sadly my raised bed will be taken apart and relocated to the field. I'm going to keep it simple and pleasant in the garden and concentrate my growing efforts at the field as it makes sense to keep it all in one place.

Tomorrow it's the turn of the chickens to have their hen house cleaned, any repairs made and painted to protect agains the Winter weather. I'd kind of like to move them to the field and open up the garden again, but they simply wouldn't be safe, and I would miss them clucking about the place :)

Next job is to go and buy more wood preservative. I think I may treat the hens to a nice green colour, to match the rabbit house, what do you think? :)

Also, on the art front, I have a few more ACEO's ready and will be sorting my Etsy and Ebay shop tomorrow as that will be my routine, to update and sort things for sale on a Sunday.

Gracious, you have been busy. You make me feel like a slug, sitting here with a book all day. But, we have had thunderstorms. That's my excuse!!

Pamela, I'd love a stormy day to curl up with a book, sounds blissful :)

Wow lady, you've been busy! I've had a cold the last few days and am struggling to summon the energy to do anything. Maybe a little sewing! I love your art - I must go and browse in your shop!

Sounds like you have achieved a lot. We have been tied up to the car boot weekends to make some money/shift some excess "stuff". Hopefully I will get out into the garden this week.
