Brassica massacre!

We’d just arrived back from a weekend away when I noticed that our chickens were out and running around our back garden.

What's left of our broccoli seedlings.

It turns out that we didn’t latch a small door in the side of the chicken pen and consequently the ‘girls’ had a big weekend out ravaging the garden. Worst hit were our broccoli seedlings and a small bed of walking onions that got thoroughly dug over. At least the girls didn’t get eaten by a passing dog or nearby falcon. Hopefully the broccoli seedlings will regrow their leaves.

I was also enjoying my time away. We just ‘had’ to stop in to the second hand yard at Molong. I was actually on the lookout for older style garden gates to be used as part of a planned upgrade to the chicken containment zone. As is always the way, the shop had 3 gates last week but none the day we arrived. Oh well. Always on the look out for retro pots and paraphenalia I did find a new decoration for the garden. This home-made sculpture of an ibis, or is it a very tall duck?

My latest garden sculpture find.

You might be relieved to hear that I passed over two concrete ‘Mexicans’ for this gem of amateur art.
