Winter Blues & 'Three New Family Members'

Its a cold and rainy winter's day here in Appin Australia. One of my other loves is gardening and it is not gardening weather at all the moment. We have had some cold frosty mornings and the garden is looking a bit sad. I did manage to get out in the garden late last week to dig over our vegetable patch in preparation for planting. We are planning to get some 'zoo poo' this year to dig through, which we are told comes straight from 'Taronga Zoo'. Will be interesting to see how the vege's grow with it in the garden.
Also in our garden, we have a large bird avairy. We have just added to the family, three chickens that a friend kindly gave to us. They breed and show the most beautiful birds. I am so happy to finally have chickens again. They seem to be settling in very well and the other birds do not seem to be bothered by them at all.
