It's warmer

Everything is growing fast and the hedgerows are filling with blue bells and the beginnings of cow parsley.
Our pair of resident red kites have been seen regularly too.
Widget and Big Bill (our terriers) have been busy patrolling the road side banks by the farm house looking for rabbits but since Billy is pretty useless the rabbits have the last laugh I reckon.
They come back a nice shade of pink due to the colour of our red clay soil.
The lambs are growing rapidly and doing really well. The milling wheat we grow is looking well and the spring beans are popping up. Everywhere around us is yellow with oil seed rape in full flower, a godsend for the bees who are busy looking for food.
Hay making this year will be later than usual as we haven't had the warmth to make the grass grow but nature has a way of evening everything out and I'm sure there will be plenty of fodder for the animals this coming winter one way or another.

Never mind the weather! Let's get together! Now is the time to visit us and enjoy a weekend with family and friends. Nights beside the log burner in Meal House and dips in the Jacuzzi Hot Tub. Eat, sleep, party if you want. Walks to the local pub or visit Medieval Ludlow only 20 mins away by car. Great value breaks at this time of year. Life's for living so get in touch for a great value quote!
