Snappy photo update

I've got to go and make dinner in a minute, so I'll make this quick.

Here's a shot of the treehouse I've been working on in the last couple of weeks for our kids:


Here's a detail of what you can do with mid-20th-Century coping saw and absolutely no training ever (in the background you can see our straw-bale grey-water system for the kitchen waste):


This is what the sand filter looks like this evening:


With mud taken from what will be a reed bed, above the willow trench, for the soon-to-exist solar shower:


Overlooked from a distance by some Lady Orchids:


And from a longer distance by a bunch of Early Purples (that I keep calling Purple Sprouting) by the veggie patch:


At the opposite end of which are some of those Burnt Orchids "anonymous" was interested in:


Round the corner from a field Her Outdoors has hand-sown with animal-feed crops for the coming winter:


Here's Luna, our probably pregnant bunny:


And Starsky, whose the daddy:


Near some guinea fowl you haven't seen yet:


And it'd be rude not to publish a cheeky photo of my Silky cock:


Right. That's it for now. Bye.

salutations to all of you,
Thanks for sharing you experience which does give the realistic touch that I have always been looking for. I also am convinced that your blog also gives us an increased desire for people to come and visit. I also hope your children will value what all of you have done.

Hi Luis - and thank you for your support!

I wish you all the best with your project. When we started, we thought it would take six years to create what we wanted - and now we are about half way there. Sometimes we wish things could happen more quickly. But only sometimes...

Ah, those are the orchids. Thanks for the photo. And I have met your guinea fowl too - love their noises!
