    Due to my mother being ill the garden got ignored. As the time went by I couldn't go out because I hated it so much which was stupid but never mind. It is now being sorted out and the garden slabs are to be re-laid.

    The garden is midway they haven't arrived back but I have a feeling the van that was used to drive here was damaged more than they knew. The younger man managed to leave the break off and the van rolled down the road hitting a fence (left a small hole in it) and damaging the van. The picture with the door is where the cat patio is going the dog in the window is Lucy.

    The area in the first picture is big enough for a 9ft by 6ft chicken coop and run, which as I don't need that many chickens will do for 3 or 4 hens. The garden is looking so much bigger than it has and its getting better. They did come back in the afternoon (turns out they mended the garden fence that got broken, he went to school with the woman who owns it her daughter was in the garden and was a little scared but she is ok now) so my chickens will have a garden to potter round in while I am watching and I am getting the men who are doing the garden to build a catio so chickens and cats can play in the garden safely. As soon as I get the chickens I will add pictures as for the house after much thinking

    This for 3 to 4 hens only. I like it better than the smiths sectional one as its tall enough for me to go into it.

    Well the manky old garden shed has gone. I am putting a greenhouse on that, the weird thing is between the concrete base that was there and the hut was a layer of glass!!!!!!!!! Sheets of glass lying on the ground why on earth would anyone do that? Oh well I can order the chicken coop (I am getting the version with external nest boxes.

    Well yesterday I ordered the chicken coop so I have 4 weeks to get the ground ready for them. The man who cleared my garden is coming tomorrow with plan for the catio as soon as that is done I am buying a load of top soil to replace the bad stuff (never noticed how many stones where in it so I will hire a skip get rid of that put a 6 ft by 6ft greenhouse and start planning a new garden I can't put many trees but with one removal of a bush I don't like I can put two in. Against the back fence I am going to put in some loganberry and blackberry bushes, and I intent to put grape vine in somewhere. The catio is going to have catnip and catgrass for the cats. So this means in about 4 weeks there will be pictures of chickens at last and my garden will be nice. Some wildflowers and fruit and veg in it the sort of garden I like
