It has been quiet at Brookwood Shire for the last few days. It has been wet and drizzly. Irish weather. Thoughts turn to knitting and soup making as we move inside. But today was warm and sunny. Indian Summer. And a day to go back outside.
The pumpkins and mums along the walkway look lovely despite the rain.
The front garden is very welcoming.
I thought I would take this opportunity to bring in some more herbs before we get a frost.
I have already brought in some rosemary, thyme and sage. I put them in this basket and they seem happy. They smell wonderful!
More rosemary and some oregano.
And a bay tree. New this year and not able to withstand New England winters.
More sage. There is nothing like the smell of fresh herbs on a winter day!
Last night the girls were fighting…well arguing… About who would get the nesting boxes. I decided to get some more. But the store didn’t have any more and wouldn’t be getting any for a few weeks. Too long! So I asked my husband if he could make some.
He ended up taking apart the ones we had and making two bigger ones. This one can fit two hens.
This one can fit three. So they will all be able to fit in.
Or all five could just get in this one! Well at least they approve. Lucky girls! Now if we could just have some eggs!
