A few bits from this month (which seems to be going very fast for me... its all that gardening I've been doing...)
:: In the dining room the Joules calender reminds me of my day in Market Harborough which is where Joules first began. The advert on this months page is just sooo English :-)
:: In the kitchen writer Leo Tolstoy speaks the truth of how my Spring always is.
:: On the window sill we have my weekly bouquet from D - this time its bluebells and grape hyacinth.
:: From the garden we had our very first egg (and much sooner than expected too!) and I think it might from our biggest hen Damson as she also has the reddest comb which is a sign of maturity. D found the egg next to their water bowl and we were soooo egg-cited!! It really is so enjoyable to see food come from your own garden isn't it?
:: The following day she laid another and then later that day we noticed we hadn't seen Cherry for a while so we went to investigate and found her just leaving the coop after laying her first egg in one of the egg boxes. Its so pretty, a lovely shade of pastel green.
:: We have now had three regular coloured brown eggs and two green ones (although one of the greens was soft shelled and laid from the perch so was soggy and smashed when I found it in the straw this morning :-(
