New additions to our family

Taylor and Tinker (8 weeks)  watching the hens

Taylor and Tinker (8 weeks) watching the hens

We have 2 kittens – a brother and sister, 8 weeks old. Taylor is a male grey tabby and Tinker is female with tortoiseshell markings, and both have white feet.

They are learning their way around, racing up the pear tree and onto the shed roof, where they play hide and seek among the branches resting on the roof, chasing each round and round. They are getting used to the hens and the dogs, stalking and spitting in turn, and wondering why these strange creatures are treating our back garden like home !!

Marmalade for breakfast

Have just finished 3 batches of marmalade – ordinary, Thick Dark and Daphne’s Special, all ready for breakfast. Our guests have been enjoying the last lot so much we had nearly run out.

Next preserve will be Ginger Jelly as I promised to have it ready for some very nice guests.
