....the living is easy" to quote one of my favourite Gershwin songs. However it's probably only true for cats and chickens....sigh. These photos were taken last week before Autumn hit us with gales and 2 inches of rain in 24 hours at the weekend! Above is Button who, being a canny cat, has found the warmest part of the garden - the compost heap!
Brown Hen having a well deserved snooze after laying eggs and scratching for worms.
These are some of the young(ish) chicks also enjoying the sunshine. (This summer the hens have hatched 30, yes 30 chicks between them!)
While the real babies of the flock are learning to forage for themselves
Snoozing among the flowers
This is one of the oldest of the chicks (Light Sussex breed)
While the hens and cat snooze *I* was busy digging up dinner!
