Une belle aventure

Our new life in 'Les Vosges'

Small is always better for new gardeners

I wanted to prepare a little vegetable patch for next year so with Eric & Coco’s help we started DIGGING some more.

The weather started to turn a little more wintery so it was time to start.

Whilst digging we found a few old nests and an old underground? wasps nest.

We decided to use this old door for the second level. Eric’s brilliant idea to have 2 levels, mine was to use that door for it. 😉

Rhys can now play basket ball there now so pretty cool.

 M&M! lol
We fed the birds from time to time in this coconut’s shell attached to a stick but we needed something better for winter…

We looked around and found all we needed.

We are surrounded by birds and really enjoy watching them from the bungalow. The bravest are the blue tits. We have also spotted robins, wrens, chaffinchs, goldfinchs and lots of sparrows.

I also planted some bulbs in the water trough and in the ‘lavoir’ and we’ve tried some ivy in the toilets.

I have also replaced the cap I was wearing (I started wearing one when I was clearing the barn) with Rhys’ old scoobydoo hat. (trend setter-me!)
And yes I did wear it to bed one night when the temperature dropped. We don’t heat the bungalow during the night and to be fair even Charlie was cold that night. (see pic below). 😉
