Here Come the Hens!


Here's Stuart with 3 of his harem of 5 hens outside our cottage last week. Whenever they appeared - which was frequently - NAH would shout Here come the hens! As a result I've had this song on my brain ever since.


So that's where the other 2 got to. We're missing their antics this week - the hens that is, not The Sugarbabes. We're missing Stella (the smooth coated lurcher) and Pickle (the tiny terrier who thinks she's a cat) too.

  1. You are so right! I love hens. Even when they go round scratching things up. Our garden would feel empty and odd without them.

  3. Elizabeth - I wish we could have them here. I'm surprised at how taken NAH's been with them!

    Lu - oh no! Was it a fox? :(
