yesterday chris put up a few yew branches for the hens to roost on.
they love to get up onto things.
the flat roof of the hen-house is a nice landing place for them. however they also poop all over it and it looks a bit gross.
i would have loved to put a living roof on top but they would have destroyed it. especially since most nights they like to sleep up there.
i had chris make a little lip all around the top so we could fill it with straw.
now they have a nice place to rest and it looks a lot nicer.
until we can replace that window on the shed i am going to try to fill the openings with plants, similar to a living pallet wall.
i also made another hanging planter for right outside the coop.
those planters are a bit addictive.
i have a few pieces of pottery set aside to turn into more planters today.
i would love one in my bathroom, above the kitchen sink and my front porch i think is in need of a little cluster of them.
in other news it is raining!! yippee!
it is supposed to rain all day into tomorrow.
i can hear my garden singing for joy.
i have been waiting for a cozy rainy day.
curried lentil soup is on the stove, a batch of granola is in the oven and there will be roasted chicken for dinner.
happy sunday friends! xo
