If you were paying attention earlier in the year you may remember how I'd made twiggy cages to protect some plants from rabbits in our little woodland. Well here's one that worked for a cowslip
Sadly something that wasn't protected enough from the wildlife were our hens. While there was no one at home on Monday afternoon a fox came and took three of them and injured the other two and Lotto the cockerel. Lotto can't lift his head up so I'm wondering if his neck is broken. He's drinking and feeding if I hold his head while I've got him on my knee though. They're all still very much in shock, standing huddled up but at least they haven't got any worse so we'll have to see how they go on.
To leave you on a lighter note, some of our apple trees are coming into blossom and look very pretty
