Straw day and animals

Today we did some gardening. Laying down straw and a bit of bramble clearing. As with all things outdoors and many inside, Ena and Matchka got involved to varying degrees….

Sniffing the straw bales, cat style.
Our veg patch now resembles a flattened haystack (made of straw!)
Nothing happnes at Barabrith without Matchka getting involved.
The straw we got from a neighbour who has a whole barn full. The hope is that this covering will stifle the growth of weeds, keep the earth moist and soft.
Marko, Sunni and the straw shadow man lay down the weedkiller (we hope!)
Just look at that dog’s shadow.
