    This one is a White Star, she is a very lively chicken. Difficult to catch hold of :) her eggs are snowy white. She is also a smaller breed but bigger than bantams. image.jpg

    There will be my pumpkin/squash garden:

    Few more frames and compost beds (one at the right, other one left - not in the picture) with few fences around. Maybe some flowers on the pots too.

    It´s again time for the leaf cactus flower. It has just opened, at the previous night.

    [​IMG]

    The flower was open only one day. At the second day, it had started to wither:

    [​IMG]

    If it doesn´t make another flower (what is possible), the next one I need to wait one year again.
