Sorry, this tree must gone :o(
It was an old pear tree,he had become old
and a little dangerous.It was a difficult
decision .....however, I had regrets.

The garden without the tree. So empty.

There comes a new locking in the
autumn and a walnut tree.
There is still a lot of work to do.

Poultry ~~ for Tim

Belgian bearded bantams are
long-established in Britain, with three
varieties standardised: Barbu d'Anvers
(Bearded Antwerp), Barbu d'Uccle
(Bearded Uccle) and Barbu de Watermael
(Bearded Watermael), the latter introduced
in the 1980s. Each variety has a wide range
of colour variations with the beards being
an attractive characteristic. Layers of tiny
eggs, the Belgian is a good breed for young
children and good specimens are very
capable of winning prizes at shows.
Bearded Watermaal

SILKIE - Silkie type fowls have been noted
for centuries, and the origin of the breed is
suggested as being in China, Japan, or
perhaps India.The breed is well known for
two endearing qualities - its soft, silky
feathering, and its persistent maternal instinct
which makes it an excellent broody.
