God`s Eyes and Cob Shed Door

During the winter months, the cob shed door swung on its hinges during windy weather and broke in several places. It has been closed using rope which has been a bit of a nuisance. Last Tuesday, as Steve had the new hinges and two lengths of wood, we decided to stay for longer so he could repair it.

My sister Paula, brought us a picnic. 

Here are a few pictures.



In the meantime Paula and I weeded the long path behind the tortoise run.

After a  nice lunch, admiring the clouds .....

..... and watching a buzzard wheeling round, we settled down to make God`s Eyes with willow sticks and rug wool.

It wasn`t until halfway through that we realised we had chosen wool that matched what we wore.


Earlier, we had planted up the water trough  near the stables and we were then able to add the creations to that.

A very satisfying day and a relief for the door to be weather-proofed.




  1. How funny about the colours you chose!
    Well done for sorting out the door. Very nice clouds, we’re unfortunately just white/grey overhead

  2. Yes we are all happy its done.
