Blossom Time!

We love this time of year when the blossom in the orchard arrives! The pink cherry tree on the pigs patch is gorgeous and the aged cherry tree on the big lawn is now in full bloom.

Unfortunately the wind is getting up so the blossom will soon be blown away.

But we can enjoy it for a while now during lockdown – it’s always a promise of an autumn harvest of apples and a few pears!

But never any cherries as the pigeons always harvest them!!

Lambing time

Lambing has started!

Sadly we have no guests to witness the first born lambs this year.

Due to this terrible Coronavirus we have had to stop having guests. We will review the situation in mid-June.

However, natures course continues and these lovely lambs are doing well.

Every year we feel privileged to see lambs being born and I even get to bottle feed the weaker or extra ones. This year I will not have my usual band of willing visitors to assist at the feeding times. The bottle racks may be needed!

Hoping for a good outcome for all of you in isolation.

Keep safe.
