... but you can't keep me away from the outside for too long so come yesterday afternoon it all become too much and me, ben, and dylan, (our trusty, oversized, labrador companion), decided to go for a walk around the farm and then down into the valley.
The first half of the pictures in the slideshow above tell the story! :-)
- a windturbine, a raggedy flag, one very friendly pig, the cherry tree in flower and misty views across the valley floor.
...and of course, very cold photographing fingertips!! :-)
Today when we woke the sun was shining, frost was on the ground and the world beckoned to me to come and play....so I did! :-)
- a day spent digging in the veg plot, rooting out the nettle roots, docks, and old sweetcorn stalks and replacing them with freshly tilled soil all ready for the new season :-) - it's so exciting!! :-) :-)
the garlic we planted are growing and growing, the new buds on the fruit trees are opening, there is signs of the new season everywhere :-) spring here we come!!! :-) xxxxx!
oh and a gardening tip...an allotmenteer told me yesterday that seed is in short supply this year due to last year's weather so order early! :-) x
my very best wishes
