Musical hens

I love my chooks.
I have four and each week they produce roughly 2 dozen eggs.
I line their nesting boxes with shredded vintage sheet music....
just for a bit of fun really.
I love they way they eat our veggie scraps.
I love the way they eat pests in the garden like snails, and cabbage moths.
Thanks for visiting me and my four brown feathered girls today.

Love the Eiffel Tower even though I haven't been there.

Good morning.
I hope there is someone out there reading this...I have not blogged for so long because I cannot load any photos and what a bland blog it would be without photos....right?
This one seems to have snuck through... I took it last week.
I love the Eiffel Tower and have always for as long as I can remember.
I know it's a 'fad' at the moment but not to me.
Anyhow last year my good friend travelled to Europe and UK and whilst in Paris bought this little facsimile for me.
Cute isn't it?
This photo is of a heavy frost 2 years ago.
The weather has been coolish for a couple of months now,
unseasonally so I might add.
This morning it's only 5 celcius which is just above freezing.
Hopefully we'll have a good cold winter here on The Darling Downs, Queensland and plenty of frosts which I know my orange
and mandarin trees will love.
So will we when we are lucky enough to eat their fruit.

Problems with loading pics to my blog

My great-grandmother's sewing machine.
It's a Beirne. Have never seen another one like it.
Some of my vintage handkerchiefs.
Hello all my blog friends.
This is my first post for yonks because I have been un-able to load any pictures to my blog.
Today miraculously I could.
Therefore I didn't have anything cohesive planned to blog about...this was sort of a test and somehow I was allowed to load these 2 pics.
I was informed I had to buy extra space so that I could upload photos etc and when I tried to pay the facility was not operating etc etc so therefore I couldn't pay and hence couldn't upload pics.
What is with Blogger?
It's so random...quite annoying as I haven't blogged for ages and ages and missed it so much.
Anyone else had problems like this?
Any tips?
Have a great day.
