Nothing beats cooking outside
At the end of the day, we all gathered down the field,
lit the bonfire
And got a goat casserole on the go,
We were joined by a couple of the ducks
Messy outdoor kitchen
Tess loves a bit of outdoor cooking
All three dogs were hoping something would fall there way
And a scout around the campfire didn’t reveal any tasty titbits
Although I think Tess was teasing Mia that she found something
The ducks departed for home as the sun was going down Then it was time to secure everyone and take ourselves back to the house to get cleaned up

My Prickly Pear is flowering, I was so excited when the first buds opened, there are loads more to go yet, and seeing the bees on them gives me hope we might get some fruit.
The cut flower beds are now producing lots of lush flowers to bring in the house, Lily’s are my top favourite.My view from the kitchen window is just great, looking down the garden, it looks wild but the overhanging frothy look is what I like, not into the formal garden look.
And big statement plants have always been on the list
A few new raised beds are on the go, this one with some climbers to train across the cabin.
It’s been a great summer so far and we are being reward with great displays in the garden.

5years ago we started our new life here in Wales it’s been a fantastic journey.
When you get up in the morning to a view like that it feels like your on holiday well I do.
Spending my days laughing at these three
Making and enjoying fresh mint tea when I want
Harvesting and preserving veg straight from the garden, this time it’s fresh spinach made into pucks and popped in the freezer.
Whiling away the time watching our residents in the barn
Bringing in the sheep at the end of the day ready for shearing, we are really blessed to live we’re we do how we do and appreciate everything around us.
