British Summer Time

The sun has shone and all our new baby lambs and their mothers have been basking in its rays. The quad bike with the maternity wagon attached has been busy delivering the new arrivals and their mothers back into the fields from the lambing sheds. The hedgerows are full of primroses and if you look carefully, blue and white violets too. The hunting horses have had their shoes taken off and are now out full time enjoying their well earned rest. Roy has even started to put weight on and will fast become comparible to an elephant if we don't watch it! Widget and Big Bill have been busy patrolling the banks by the house as the rabbits have started to spring clean their holes, throwing out last years beds to make room for the new ones. So winter is out and we seem to have bypassed spring and are straight into summer but it does put a smile on your face when you have days like these.

What a great weekend we had with a fantastic family full of fun, adults and children alike. The weather was pretty good and enabled the children to play with Widget and our new puppy 'Tipsy' in the garden. It was great as the puppy just played or slept! As I type she's trying to help! The children also had lots of fun in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub occasionally letting their parents in. Have a look at some of the smiling faces with Widget and Tipsy on the main blog page. Farming news: We have fields full of ewes and 'getting larger everyday' lambs. The rain which was so desperately needed arrived and has given everything a boost so the grass is now growing well. Talking to neighbouring farmers when we were herding their two cows, which had escaped onto our top field, the general feeling was that the spring crops will definitely have been affected by the lack of rain at the crucial time of planting but that's farming for you so the ever changing challenges keep coming.
