Hail Storm antics

We had an almighty cold front crossing over us the entire weekend. And the hail storm that exploded just a few hours ago was amazing! I haven’t experienced one like this before – not that I can remember! We have a zinc roof so the noise was deafening. I was so surprised to see the new chickens, Tara and Rocky, running around and picking up balls of hail! How funny is that!! They seem to have no fear! The amount of hail that fell can bee seen in the mound that landed in the drains! Well, the Cape of Storms has lived up to her name!! Winter has truly settled in. Let’s get the soup on the stove, the blankies out Β and the wood in the fireplace!

The simple fun of chasing hail stones!


Happy Winter folks!

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Thanks Donna – I am leaving the garden for the new chickens to work. I know they have other intensions and will scratch everything up, but I will be re-planning the back garden to be more chicken hardy!

The weather pattens are really changing, so we have to adapt with it, I guess! My garden saw no damage at all – except for the chickens scratching it up! πŸ™
