Fall Garden Chores, Chickens and the Fairy Garden



I have been busy today working in the yard. My hubby has been working a lot so I took over mowing this week. I love when the yard is all clean and spiffy. The flowers are loving the milder fall weather and I added a few mums to the front porch. It is a good workout to get your yard in shape.


After I did all the chores I made an iced coffee and went to sit with the new chickens. I try and just sit with them quietly everyday so they get used to me being around and not so skiddish. They pretty much come see if I have any treats whenever I enter the run. Love them. The run area is full of leaves and bugs and spiders since the old girls left. I am slowly cleaning everything up and pulling out the old garden plants from the summer. They are enjoying scratching for bugs. I threw them a hug grub and they all ran. They were afraid of it. Chickens!!


Our little fairy coop garden sort of was looking disheveled so I moved it to another pot and planted some dwarf mondo grass in there. Everything was dusted off and now looks so much nicer moved to the patio so I can see it from the window.
What are you  up to this week? I have a couple of giveaways coming up so I will keep you posted.

Okay, I can tell that I've been missing some very important blog posts. When did the chickens return? P.S. The flowers look great!

Beautiful flowers! I have got to get my yard mowed and some fall decorations out this week, if the rain will let up long enough.

You sound so much more contented now that you have your chickens. Maybe in a former life you lived on a farm and sold eggs. I'm so glad you got some chickens, Elaine! You need them and they need you.
