The first signs of Spring bring us hope

Everywhere there are snowdrops – in our garden, in the hedgerows and swathes of them on our neighbours land.

Last year we dug up lots of snowdrops from a wild area where they were growing in the back, and planted them into the borders, front and back.  Its good to see they have taken and are coming up with the daffodils.

It’s great to see the Primulas also in flower, and we have the first crocus bulb out in one of the pots by our front door.

Its welcoming to see the bulbs coming up everywhere, certainly gives us hope that Spring is round the corner and perhaps we will see an end to all this rain and flooding that people have endured.

Luckily we are OK here as we live on a hill and the water just runs downhill, but so many places have been affected, I feel so sorry for people whose houses have been flooded.

Anyway we are open for bed and breakfast business as usual.

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!!
