Jack Frost is at it again and a couple of nights ago he turned our white magnolia in the stable yard brown but in fairness it was on the wane, luckily our Soulangeanas are still in bud and will look wonderful in a day or so. The tulips are beginning to make a showing and I hope that the weather remains cool so that they are looking their best on 19th April when we are having a huge party in the Garden to show off our chickens amongst other thing to raise badly needed funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

We have been hugely busy making homes for our new chickens: rare breeds we have obtained from our dear friend Ivor. We love it when he comes to the garden because he brings splendid new fowl for our growing collection. There must be 15 different breeds ranging from Barbu d’Uccles to Frizzled Polands… all great characters and I waste lots of time watching them for hours it seems. We are really hoping they are a big hit with garden visitors because they are so unusual. We have made them a huge new run this week and all is electrified to keep out Mr. Fox.
