Well another week has past.

We got our first egg this week, it is only very small but I'm sure they will get bigger. This is actually our 2nd egg the first one was crushed, probably in the shock of it all. The thing is we haven't had another one after this one. If someone reading this knows more about chooks than me, is it normal to have one egg then a break.
Yesterday we went for a drive to Breakfast Point to see our beautiful girl be flower girl for her Aunt. She scrubbed up very well in her flowergirl dress. R was very excited about the whole event and had spoken about it for weeks. Our gorgeous boy, her brother A was just as excited and he scrubbed up very well too.
The Flowergirl... Isn't she lovely. Brides shouldn't have flowergirls they steal the show because they are sooooo cute.
Here is the Flowergirls big brother A and their Mum. Doesn't A look very smart and he told me he did his own hair. He was so excited to be at the wedding and wanted to know when the food and dancing would be happening.

Today we spent the day in the garden...

We planted cucumbers and squash.

This is our Corn, growing nicely.

Button Squash, the flowers look lovely but most of the squash have bottom end rot. We can't work out why this is happening. Have to do more research I suppose.

Hydrangeas - I gave these plants a hard pruning last year and now they are full of flowers.

Our Passionfruit finally has flowers with little fruit in the middle. Hopefully these little fruit won't fall off like the rest have.

Steve pruned this 4o+ year old lemon tree with a chainsaw last year. I guess it was the best thing he could have done for the poor old thing, this year it's full of fruit and flowers and lots of new growth. I pulled a few stink bugs off it today but there is no where near as many as there was last year.

I think thats all for now.

What beautiful photos of the kids!

I have no idea what's normal for chooks, we haven't got ours yet.

Your garden is going well!
