View from our window 3

Looking out from the kitchen window I can see Hamish, my neighbours horse

From the back window, I can see our latest visitor!

Good news on the henfront - a blue egg was amongst the daily collection this morning - Bev is laying again, bringing our hens to full capacity. 6 hens, 6 eggs every day!

For more views visit Jane here


  1. envious!
    From the front here I have the village mainstreet. At the back, from the kitchen I look out on my kiln chimney and workshop roof (green tiles) across the back lane and neighbour's garden (?!) patch to the main trunk road up the valley and a factory the other side of the road. The saving grace is the slopes of Mynydd y LLan, horses in a field and conifer plantations above.

  2. what type of hens do you have? Just waiting to get some....bit scared and excited!

  3. quite a view Happy weekend Sandy

  4. Lovely view - very relaxing.

  5. Oh, the pheasant is beautiful!! I see Hamish still has his winter coat on.

  6. What great views you have from your windows - I have my garden and the lane running past the side of our bungalow but no long distance view to the open countryside. How lovely to see the cock pheasant.

  7. Wow... Beautiful photos today.
    I love that you have a Hamish too. Although one is your neighbors and mine is a crazy Scottie.
    I an amazed you have a Pheasant at your bird feeder. Lucky you !

    cheers, parsnip

  8. I love the name Hamish, and the pheasant is beautiful indeed.
    What do you do with so many eggs? I had an egg-cheese-and-toast sandwich for breakfast today. Yum.
    My mother used to make a cake called "Sunshine Cake" containing 12 eggs. It was very light, but not as light as angel cake, although it was baked in an angel cake tin — it rose up about 3 inches above the top of the tin and had to be cooled in the tin on a long-necked beer bottle. I've never tried making it, but I remember it fondly.

  9. Those are my kind of views...I wish anyway! Suzy x

  10. Did you ever decide on a name for your pheasant?

  11. Love that pheasant.
    Have a great weekend.

    Nuts in May

  12. A blue egg??? That's wild. Could it be from a different bird? As you can tell I know nothing about hens :) But, I have a son that really likes eggs. 6 hens laying 6 eggs just might be what we need to keep up with that boy. He's a little guy @ 6'6ish and 17 years old. Maybe if I got a few hens I could keep up with him. :)

    Forgive me for being so late stopping by your blog. ~ Life got in the way of blogging ~ I hate it when that happens! :)

    Have a great week! See you soon!

  13. You absloutely cannot beat fresh eggs from your own hens, enjoy. I have still to find Charlie's nest she is laying somewhere about the farm....I just hope the sheepdog doesn't get there first!!
