and she is doing a grand job teaching them how to peck

(Although we of course have to take care of Claire. Today she was set up with a nursery in the woodshed as it was a bit chilly outside)

We wish we had given her more eggs rather than hedging our bets. This was the only one of hers that didn’t quite make it

is trying to coax out some company.

where they seem to be settling in

now that they have a day shelter.

Bees, of course, are an enigma

and nearby we spot a new flower in the meadow.

We will have to add it here – when we know what it is. Can you help?
