You may remember me mentioning that my chickens were devoid of a man in their lives .. and quite frankly, I don’t think it bothers them one bit either. That was until my neighbour’s rooster who is free ranging realised that there were 10 rather attractive chickens over the fence, who needed some male attention!
I couldn’t believe my eyes when I spotted the casanova the other day .. and as can be expected, raced up to the chook paddock hollering.
He was given his marching orders and didn’t waste any time flying over the fence and disappearing into the long grass – destination home!
Needless to say, not everyone was concerned
Our garden is full of flowers .. the roses are looking gorgeous
And the dahlias are showing off in the pots on the deck
Eric our black cat is also looking rather gorgeous parading about
We went to a different part of the beach the other day in search of Toi Tois.
I thought Okiritoto stream looked lovely
Muriwai beach in the distance
Pretty coastal plants
Slow down it’s the beach
Nothing better than watching horses being ridden on the beach .. yes I’m jealous
I’ve been super good too – I was out and about spraying the orchard with seaweed brew!
