I have just realised that it is over a week since I wrote a post. I have been so busy, the time has flown!
Before I forget,welcome to Karen Hymen on Blog lovin. good to have you here.
Spring is definitely springing here, with trees in bud, frogspawn in the pond and two broody hens.
While the weather continues to be dry we are spending all of our time outside, mending things, digging gardens, splitting plants, pruning trees, having a huge 2-day bonfire and generally wearing ourselves out..in a good way. We finish as it gets dark, have our main meal of the day and, if we are not going out, collapse!
On Sunday, as is usual, the family came for tea (roast lamb..again!) While I was attacking the evil blackberries, ED said "What would you like me to do? " I suggested she have a go with the rotivator at the middle veg patch. So off she set, but it was not too easy as the blessed thing kept cutting out "Give me a spade" she said. So after moving some slabs with her dad, who set about re-laying them elsewhere, she started digging with gusto. Now ED is in a managerial position at work and it wasn't long before she demonstrated her management skills and encouraged (press ganged, nay forced) her daughter and niece to grab a spade and give a hand. (meanwhile YD is in the kitchen getting our meal ready)
Here they are putting their backs into it, with help from some of the hens, who didn't have to be encouraged at all! The guy at the back, who looks as though he is wearing a white woolly hat is my husband. He really does need a haircut doesn't he?
Lots of thanks and love to the three landgirls in the picture !
I have also received my book from Amazon by Leigh Tate called "5 Acres and a Dream" and I'll have to have a little peak before I settle down
Goodnight dear friends, be back soon.
