If I had to commentate the happenings in my back garden it would go something like this – “….The garden was devastated by Hurricane Skollie and Tornado Vanilla….” I am shattered at the total destruction 2 small chickens can inflict on an area large enough to hold a large house!! The garden is a total mess and the beautiful stone path around the house has been scratched to death.

I have lost total enjoyment and the appeal has gone right out of the window! This has all happened because the planning of the new chicken run has not materialized. We were set back this past week with a sick chicken needing surgery on her feet. Oh dear!! Poor Buffy had bumblefoot and needed to have this removed before it caused systemic damage…..that is another post (sigh!)! She is on the mend, but ….

No words can describe what you see here…… wish me luck that in the next weeks before Christmas, I can get this looking like a garden again. We have to get the chicken run up this week…..or else!

The bed under the potato bush

The stones are all scratched up

This area is also destroyed

The culprit lurks

Tornado Vanilla

Hurricane Skollie

Potato sacks destroyed-ripped apart!

Raised bed has been infiltrated

The new bed has not been excluded

Plants ripped up!

A big mess!Yes-I’m talking about you!

The patchwork wrecked!

Ripped up and out! Plants uprooted!

Closer look at the devastation!

I have so much to do. It will take me days to get this right! And a few trips to the nursery! Wish me luck…..

Happy Gardening xxxx
