Sunshine and Showers

I feel sure that within a few days it will pick up and we will enjoy the long sunny days of May and June.
The lambs are out in the fields except for a few ewes who are still expecting their arrivals - does this mean they are the ugly ones or the tups were worn out?? - who knows, let's assumme all ewes are pretty to the tups.
We have been full of families, singers filling the Brown Clee Hill with their vocals and cylclists this weekend. At the farm next door it looked like hundreds of school children were camped out doing their Duke of Edinburgh awards. We had to keep a very close eye on Widget who was keen to join them to achieve a gold award! Last year she walked over the hill with them and I had to collect her from Ditton Priors where she had found some boys to play football with!

Harvesting is over! The combine was brought home last night after a very testing end to the summer. The planting of next years crops now begins in haste before the ground gets too wet to work. The horses winter beds are down in the stables waiting for them to come in at night as soon as it drops too cold or wet and the logs are being loaded into the log shed ready for the log burner in Meal House and the farm house to keep us all warm. The Jacuzzi comes into its own during the winter months. It's the time I like to use it most. Everyone has suddenly started cooking roast dinners and puddings and the salad bowl is to be found at the back of the cupboard. We still have guests booked in with their horses enjoying the Autumnal colours and changing vista of the Brown Clee Hill and as long as you have your wellies or walking boots there's a host of fabulous walking out there. As we head towards Christmas our rates become such great value so why not grab a weekend away and curl up by that log burner in Meal House or jump in the Jacuzzi and watch the steam rise!
