The greenhouse has been demolished and the brambles all removed. Next, the wire will go up on the side and a half of the veg garden that has neither wall nor greenhouse, then the chooks can roam.
And this afternoon, Hannah and Sam brought young Rupert to visit. He is adorable! Absolutely as delightful as he looked in his FB photos. Ben was hopelessly overexcited to start with, so in the end we took them both outside and they had a whale of a time. Although Roops is tiny compared to Benj, he wasn’t at all afraid and they romped about. When Rupert was chasing Ben was the funniest time, but I was laughing too much to think of taking pictures. But here they are together.
Rupert is 8 months old now and will come here at the end of July for a couple of weeks – I expect we’ll have Ben until the end of this month at least. This is such fun, though the house is a complete shambles. Still, it doesn’t matter, does it?
