It's raining, it's pouring...


Will it ever stop?
If you enlarge the photo above you'll see all the farm chickens huddling up to the barn trying to get out of the rain. It's quite amusing to watch because as soon as the rain starts again they all run as quick as they can for shelter.


Our chickens are on strike and not laying - they say this weather is only fit for ducks!




Over flowing gutters, rain washed windows, sodden fields & flooded roads are all the order of the day today. Poor Dylan had to stay in his stable all day as the fields are just too wet to turn the horses out.

It looks like this weather is set to carry on next week too. Don't we deserve a break?

  1. Funny old birds ... my girls aren't fussed by the rain at all, they still strut around and have to be chased in at dusk! They have broken down the soil wonderfully in their area at the bottom of the garden and I'm going to pinch a bit of it back next year to grow some veggies (should be nicely fertilised too ;-)
