Such clever girls! by happypat

Such clever girls!

Our lovely girls reward us with these lovely brown eggs.
We have five hens & one cock & they are laying like mad at the moment.
We can hardly keep up especially as the B&B guy is only having porridge at the moment for his breakfast.

A trip to the accountants to sign papers is as far as we have been on this very cold windy day.
We have some slates blown off on one side of the roof but the builder is not answering his phone....we want to be first in the queue!

Three good things:
1. Don't want to speak to soon but no snow yet!
2. Cathy is coming to do my feet tonight!
3. Good news for a niece.
Those eggs look delicious, and most taste as such. Wonderful composition and capture with great focus and DOF.

@happypat Yorkshire puddings? Leek & Cheshire cheese bread pudding? scotch pancakes?
January 28th, 2015  
This is a wonderful shot, the focus on the eggs and the blue pottery in the background. You have some wonderfully brown eggs there Pat. I think you should frame this, it's fantastic. Fav
January 28th, 2015  
Love the composition here! Well done, Pat!
January 28th, 2015  
Fab composition

Wonderful composition, and I love the light as well.
January 28th, 2015  
@newbank yes of course....I didn't think of them!! I must get busy!
January 28th, 2015  
@lucypics Thank you very much Lucy....Harry has just had a look & said it's very blurry!! Little does he know it's supposed to be like that! There again I used to think that too! Copper Marans lay these very brown ones.

@denisefuller @rangerxenos Thank you ladies, very kind to comment!
January 28th, 2015  
A lovely composition and focus. We are told no snow yet but the wind is very strong.
January 28th, 2015  
@jtookey150 Yes it's blowing a gale here too Jean! Snow forecast overnight. We are a bit stressed about our dinner dance on Saturday night...it's up nearer the Pennines so more chance of deep snow.
January 28th, 2015  
Gorgeous kitchen shot - it's lovely having your own hens isn't it? Hope you can get your roof fixed quickly.
January 28th, 2015  
Waw !! beautiful brown chucky eggs and all from your very own chuckies !
January 28th, 2015  
So much more flavoursome than the supermarket variety having grazed on lovely green grass and good food and of course being put safely to bed each evening by Harry ! Beautifully captured Pat
January 28th, 2015  
Good girls. And those lovely jars too.
January 28th, 2015  
Perfectly taken, the background suits so well
January 28th, 2015  
Wonderful! Love the focus, dof and composition. FAV.
January 28th, 2015  
such a nice shot
January 28th, 2015  
Love the well constructed shot with the blue jars in the background! Talking about snow, I just read a recipe for pancakes using snow! Two eggs and 2 cups of flour etc etc making a thick batter then go out and collect 1 & 1/2 cups of fresh snow and mix in! Got to be fresh snow! Ain't that interesting?
January 28th, 2015  
@dide Thanks Dianne......we have just heard our roof man might have gone skiing!
January 28th, 2015  
@beryl Yes they darent do anything else but lay us some decent eggs Beryl......I love it if the B&Bs ask for boiled eggs, quite surprised when they see the colour!

January 28th, 2015

A very pleasant country scene!
January 28th, 2015  
@julzmaioro so do I Jukz but even more I hope no more come off! Still blowing hard with sleet showers.
January 28th, 2015  
@miley89 @cejaanderson
Thanks very much....I think they might not be laying as many if it gets much colder!
January 28th, 2015  
Fav for me too - beautiful brown eggs. My girls have let me down a bit with colour but they lay two very different sizes and they are coming thick and fast despite the horrible weather. Given a load away today. Look gorgeous with your pottery.
January 28th, 2015  
love the DOF from front to back Pat, lovely bokeh on the read, biscuits and sugar :)
January 28th, 2015  
This looks so professional, Pat. Your focus and pov are perfect. Fav.
January 28th, 2015  
What a lovely shot - perfect for a natural food magazine!!
January 28th, 2015

January 29th, 2015  
Nice visual
January 29th, 2015  
Fantastic pov and love the scene! Great story too! Love the focus and colors. fav for me!
January 29th, 2015  
Wow, such busy hens. Deb has to give eggs away to the neighbours when they can't keep up.
Had to smile at the slates loose. I know it isn't funny but it reminded me of my Mum once when we were kids. We had a terrific storm and a couple of roof slates were blown off. She ran down the street to see a builder who was fixing somebody else's roof and shouted "I've got a couple of slates missing". Coming from the North of England you will know that a statement like that usually means that she is a bit on the 'slow' side. ha ha. It took her a while to live that one down.
January 29th, 2015  
great pov
January 29th, 2015  
A well known phrase round these parts Babs........how funny, bet the builders laughed! Less windy this morning so much better a,though snowy showers forecast.
January 29th, 2015  
Beautiful eggs! Love the composition.
January 29th, 2015  
Love this shot

January 29th, 2015  
Love this; great POV and focus and I really like the blue & white jars!
January 29th, 2015  
I love this shot, Pat! This just so cozy and homey feeling. Makes me want to go in the kitchen and start cooking. Beautiful focus and wonderful colors! I'm a big fan of brown eggs...they just look so farm fresh and natural. I'm so envious of your steady supply of nest to table eggs.
January 29th, 2015  
@kimcrisp thanks Kim.....I love them too ....timeless I think!
January 29th, 2015  
@peggysirk Thanks Peggy....we are very lucky with the hens & they are such characters too. Funny how a brown egg always looks more tempting!
January 29th, 2015  
Lovely shot of the eggs, like the booked around them too.
January 30th, 2015  
Fabulous focus on the eggs. Such a lovely, almost nostalgic, sight. Love the composition as well. Fav'd.
