We're still fully occupied with apples, the chicks continue to grow at an astonishing rate and I'm rather taken with this little Araucana Bantam hen ( the lilac grey bird) belonging to a friend of ours. I'll show you the little cockerel another day. In the meantime don't forget you can join us on a "virtual" apple pick, we're posting photographs from the orchard on our website over the next few days, you'll find them in theWhat we are doing section
I'm incredibly lucky because my family and I live in town but also work in an orchard growing apples, pears and plums. We're only a few miles from the sea so we get the very best of British Town, Country & Coastal Living.
We have dogs and cats, horses, ferrets, chickens and quail, a tortoise, a parrot and a jackdaw called Sparrow who was rescued from the orchard with a broken wing.
We have a lot of fun.
We're passionate about the British countryside, wildlife, gardening, antiques, animals, books, art, design,vintage, home, food, living (and trading) in an ethical and environmentally sustainable way.
