Ready and Waiting

Was I little hard on suburbia? Perhaps. Along with our 1950s timber house we’ve inherited a garden. This garden boasts a large frangipane tree, a small lawn and rampant weeds. On the Eastern side of the house are three large concrete beds. One can only imagine what they were originally intended for, but they do seem rather serendipitous to us. So far, they’ve been aggressively weeded, mulched, fenced and otherwise prepped for serious suburban bliss. First thing on the list? Backyard poultry.

Our chook house was bought on Gumtree and cheerfully delivered by the seller. It is, in fact, a decommissioned children’s cubby house and came with a sandpit, gratis. With help from Uncle Ollie and Aunty Sarah it is sporting a new paint job, a perch fashioned from an old rake handle and a hinged roof for ease of egg-collecting. The colour scheme was inspired by our travels through England.

All it needs now are some residents!
