We were clearing out the barn in preparation for the party, all the future projects which had accumulated in there, garden furniture, tools, work benches, well, you know, tons of stuff. The antique metal bed frame we had bought years ago is still waiting to be sandblasted, but I thought it would look nice put up in the garden for the summer, rather than just being crammed into DH's work room.
A couple of hours after putting it up, this sight greeted me and made me chuckle, my Poppy girl behind bars -
Does she look slightly bewildered to you? Is she saying ' hang on a mo, isn't there something missing from this bed? '
Strange girl, she was quite happy sitting in there for ages.
And as we are talking animals at the moment, I thought I'd introduce you to our newest and closest neighbours, the fluffiest little white baby Charolais cows -
For a split second this looked like a many legged cow, lol, until I realised there was a little calf behind the mummy cow -
Gorgeous little creatures.
Not quite so gorgeous are spiders, but they do construct the most beautiful webs-
The veggie patch is supplying us with loads of fresh veggies every day. Digging up potatoes is like digging for treasure, it is so much fun. Beans are very plentiful and so delicious, and the round courgetty things are rampant. I swear they double in size over night. Tomatoes are coming along very nicely now and I pick cherry tomatoes and Andine Cornu tomatoes every day. Just as well that we love eating toms. Beetroot are a decent size now, and I think I would like the balsamic vinegar roasted beetroots with our Sunday dinner. Oh, pumpkins, gorgeous French pumpkins for soup. We found a lovely sounding recipe for a Thai pumpkin soup, so I am looking forward to that.
Just a couple of garden pics. Round courgettes -
Pumpkins, such a gorgeous colour -
Climbing beans -
Had to edit and add a couple of pics of the potatoes and beans I picked for dinner. They are the tastiest knobbly pink spuds, and the beans are sooooo long, yet so tender. Delicious!
Morning view -
At the moment, the sun is shining, but we are preparing for the forecast thunderstorms today, and hail overnight/tomorrow.
Wishing you all a fabulous weekend,
