I'm enjoying small vases of cut daisies. We have a few varieties here and they fill up pockets of the garden with sunny blooms and happy memories of my grandparents garden. I don't feel the need for fancy bouquets, just a simple selection of blooms or herbs plonked into a vase makes me smile.
I love their sunny centres and their delicate petals.
Yesterday little hands helped me create blueberry & banana muffins from my favourite family recipe. I will share this recipe soon. It is a basic muffin that you can add your own ingredients to based on what you have on hand, what's in season or whatever you fancy! The kids love these and they freeze well making them handy for school lunches and afternoon snacks.
Since the passing of our chook this week I have been reading up on chook books and thinking about adding more hens to our family. This means building a new pen, so that is on my mind too. The book at the bottom is called The Contented Chook and it is a new release that I picked up at our local book store. It features 60 examples of 'real' chook houses from around Australia and it's great for inspiration and ideas. Even if you aren't new to chooks it is still a great resource. We have four hens now. Two Sussex and two Australorp crosses. If you would like to recommend a breed for whatever reason, please feel welcome to in the comments.
