SOS 2nd November

Colours of Autumn

On Monday morning we had the first frost which blackened the dahlias. Thank goodness I had taken all the pelargoniums to their winter quarters at the weekend. I took these photos in the week when there was some sunshine however today we have endless rain and high winds. Another note of gloom is that 2 black hens are no more because the darned fox caught one of them who had decided she would sleep outside on Saturday night. I now have one black hen and two reds. I bought her a couple of friends to replace her sister but she doesn’t like them much at the moment.

    1. Thank you. Unfortunately it’s an occupational hazard of being a chicken. I managed to keep them safe for over two years but it was bound to happen one day 😒
