- He’s so lordly!Nine ram sheep have now taken up residency in our Pond Field.
They are huge and just great big eating machines. They all stay in a flock and move …very slowly…around the field munching away and sounding just like a low powered engine…munch, munch, munch! They are very easy to distinguish one from another as their faces have very distinctive features…we haven’t got round to naming them all yet ….but we will!
After eating there's a lot of sleeping and snoring that goes on!
Climbing rose growing from dustbin up the front of our house!
As well as sheep in the field there is a great deal of activity going on around the rest of the garden
….flowers are blooming now that we’ve had a spot of rain and everywhere looks fresh, green and colourful.
Roses are amazing......root is in a dustbin!

The field is a hive of activity with the swallows, house martins, swifts and many other birds enjoying swooping down and around to catch all the insects that are feeding on the hay meadow. The meadow is beautiful…it is full of yellow rattle, buttercup, clover and lots of different plants and species…it is alive!
My veg patch is doing well too...fantastic Chinese veg...Chines cabbage, broccoli and Pak Choi
Rest of patch coming along, peas, broad beans, swiss chard, parsnip and mixed herbs
Poppy in front garden..only at this time of year do visitors get a poppy from the garden in a vase in their bedroom- to match the poppy theme!
