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.
