Lots of pears, but no eggs....

Well, its a bit drizzly today but here's a photo of yesterday to cheer us all up - such blue skies and so lovely and sunny.

I walked around our garden to inspect the changes being away for two weeks has wrought. To be honest, its just more of the same - weeds, weeds, brambles and weeds. It still manages to look pretty though, and our two pear trees are suddenly in full bursting form:-

I'm going to have to get out the ladder to reach these beauties!
On the hen front, the girls have stopped laying!!! They are usually such brilliant layers that it's a real shock. It was extremely miffing to have to buy free range eggs for the first time in nearly 2 years too, especially when they have now been given such gorgeous accommodation! Remember this?
Well, that could be part of the problem I suppose - combined with us going away - hens are quite emotional creatures - it doesn't seem to take much to put them off their stride. I have opened up their grubby old henhouse just in case the penthouse accommodation is too much for them.......maybe they're more 'backstreet' hens! Only for the moment, don't think I'll mention this to Mr. P as cost of new henhouse still a bit of an issue!!! x
