Wool Scones Chickens

I've had my eye on this wool for a while. I love this part of the colour spectrum - yellow, warm yellow. This will be my winter TV jumper. I ordered it from a company called Love Knitting, and I love that it came in this gauze bag. Little details like this make a difference. I would definitely order from this company again. 
Today we had no bread so I quickly baked scones to go with our soup. It was either that or nothing. And I love my own scones. They're light and delicious just with butter.
I've been spending a lot of time with my animal friends lately. The new chicks, and Swann (our goose) take a fair bit of attention, but I like to make sure the old girls are given special treatment too. This is Yoko, one of our original girls. 
But the chicks' antics are very entertaining. This is Bread. We think Bread is a cockerel. He's a beautiful creature. Amazing colouring. Bursting out of his body. He reminds me of the Incredible Hulk because I can almost see him expand, he's growing so quickly.
This is Delphis and her wee family. They're so cute when I see them coming towards me. I just love them. They are mixing well with the other hens and goose. I'm so impressed by Delphis's qualities and dedication as a mum. And they love her so much.
This is The Secret Herb Garden in Damhead. A new place we were told about. I loved it, particularly the shop, which sell such diverse items as bee suits and glassware, pencils, soap, chocolate honeycomb… I particularly covet The Tub/The Hub? I don't remember what it's called but when Virginia Woolf wrote about A Room of One's Own she could have been writing about this. A gorgeous room, with a desk, a window and two armchairs. I want it, badly.
