Collecting fresh laid eggs from the hen house on the morning of St Patrick’s Day at Bealtaine Cottage.
Step inside the Hen House with me to see where the girls have laid… then over to the tunnel to check on the seedlings.
I explain how the compost toilet system is so simple and easy and essential!
Finally, walking around the front of the cottage to delight in the quickening growth of the season!

The rain has fallen for 48 hours.
Heavy, relentless rain, that has washed down the hill behind the cottage and into the ditches, I constructed for such a deluge.
The water is carried around the ditches and into the stream bed that flows down through the Fairy Wood and on, into the ponds.
This is how it looked, as water rushed into the lower pond, about 10 minutes ago!
The Bog garden is not navigable in this weather otherwise!
All is not wet though…there’s a nice warm stove in the kitchen and the air temperature outside isn’t too cold.
In between the downpours, the sun shines, reflected by the watery scene that makes up the gardens today.
The birds are singing and the wind-chimes are melodic rather than frenetic! The hens have settled in well and have even laid a few eggs!
They don’t mind being indoors, as the roof on the hen-house is transparent and tilted to the south, admitting the sun as it shines on.
