Mad British Spring weather

We have just sat outside to have lunch in glorious sunshine.  The sky is bright blue and there is hardly a cloud in it.  Yesterday afternoon it was snowing quite hard.  What a contrast.

This morning when I let the hens out it was minus 3 degrees.  Now it is 7 degrees, that’s 10 degrees difference just in a few hours.

The Spring bulbs are responding to the sunshine.  This is one of our half moon baskets by the front door. Even the Hyacinth is popping its head up now.

The Daffs are all out.

And the little Tete a Tete daffs make a fine display in one of our pots.

I’d love this weather to continue but they have forecast rain for tomorrow, so better make the most of it today and go and clean the chickens out!!

Signs of Spring arriving

We have been having a spell of warm weather in March and it really has started to feel like Spring is here.  The flowers are responding and we have many blooms in flower.  The bees have been out and flying gathering pollen.

Our half moon baskets by the front door are full of flower now, including the little tete a tete daffodils.

The bumble bees have particularly been keen on the crocus.

The rhubarb is showing through and all the little strawberry plants have new leaves.  There are buds on the fruit trees and shoots on the raspberry canes. Also we have sheep (but no lambs) in the field behind our garage so we wake up in the morning to the sound of baa baa!!

One of our hens, a Speckledy has gone broody on us. She just sits in the nest box all day long, and sits on the eggs the other hens lay.  I have taken to lifting her off every now and again, as I want to make sure she gets some food and water, but she just goes back there.  We don’t have anywhere to segregate her, so anybody got any ideas what to do with her?

Anyway the other hens are still laying so that is OK, we still have eggs for breakfast!!
