Living in the heart of the Somerset countryside and having recently moved house to a property that does tick every box on the list, I needed to find ways to add my (our) stamp to the place. We have already gutted the garden, removed the jungle that had formed there, uncovered some beautiful features and … Continue reading The Profiles Range
After finally moving house after what seemed like an eternity we had to quickly construct somewhere for the hens to live as their old coop and run was built into the fence surrounding the garden.

We have two at the moment, affectionately known as Ginger Hen and Speckledy Hen (not very original I know, but at least my other half knows which one I am referring too)!
