Meet Dot and Doris!!

I thought you would like to meet my friends chickens, Dot & Doris



I'm looking after them at the moment.
Now I know you thought I had a big garden, but look at the size of Dot & Doris's



Now we go down and through the gate to where the chickens are....



Squeeze through the bushes..
this is the chickens area.......



Now down here throught the gate between the greenhouse and the fruit cage.....



across the vegetable area and over to the shed....



In the distance you can see a gate and that is the boundary of the farmers field.

Now I will show you what should really be ours, but when we moved into our house back in '88' unbeknown to us, the bottom plot, which I will show you now, had been sold to No 2!!!
So looking across from Dot & Doris's vegetable garden you can see through to my greenhouse...


the stables......



and then further down the garden....



All of this could have been ours. Sadly it was in the days when we had very little money so where unable to go after both the solicitor and the estate agent.

The house is tidy all I need to do is hoover. The ham is in soak. The chickens cleaned out. The girls have both got there heads down doing course work and essays. The 2nd load of washing is just spinning and I have a couple of shirts to iron.
I think I might take myself off and have a hot soak in the bath as a treat!!
Cathc you all later!!!

Hi Thanks for your visit to my blog. My hubby and I have long dreamed of an allotment or better still a small holding. Alas this will never happen but I shall enjoy visitoring yours. Have bookmarked you so that I can return once the Christmas season is over and read more. Hope you enjoyed your bath....both you and the ham soaking! LOL

Merry Christmas
Ruth
