Neighbourly animals

Hi Chris, I wanted to introduce you to the neighbourly animals that are always part of the village. I am lucky to live in a Cul-de-Sac and at the end of our road is a farm gate where I have always wanted to wander. Behind this gate is a happy place where a handful of farm animals live and frolic.  Today was my day to introduce myself to them all! I saw my neighbour herding his sheep back to the farmyard after their day of grazing in the nearby fields.  He invited me to visit the animals. There was a Spurwing Goose – this is a rare find because they are wild birds. This one has become tame and walks right up to you. A bunny and chickens and the lonely horse and the flock of sheep!





Have a happy week in your garden xxx

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.

Well I don’t know about Chris, but I’m having difficulty picturing cul-de-sac and farm animals in the same sentence never mind the same place. How waaay different than here.

Blotanical is really messy these days. It says that your title in the Picks window ‘Raising Butterflies’, then when i opened it is ‘Neighborly Animals’! At least i am not the only one with mixed titles and contents, haha. I am amused at the ‘lonely horse’
