My hippiestrum, photo does not do it justice.

Tropolium, which is a species of nasturtium.

I had a lovely time a few weeks ago attacking my vines covering this fireplace with all its objects d'art....

Pete made me this lovely little coop for my broody chooks to hatch their eggs in but unfortunately, either our chooks or our rooster are too old. Someone gave me a lovely little broody hen and she sat for over three weeks. We then broke the eggs and they were all rotten. We put another setting under her and the result was the same. Very disappointing. She is now happily running around with the others, she is a pretty little brown speckly thing. Next we are going to try and capture and black and white speckly rooster up with some wild chooks up the road.
