Oh what a beautiful morning the sun is shining through the window and although it looks very cold outside after the weekends heavy rain it is beginning to look like spring. The green wood-pecker has arrived and keeps hammering in the ground for bugs and insects. The lady pheasants are sunny themselves down by the hedge with Mr. pheasant watching over them to make sure they don’t find the new toy boy parading in his glorious new adult feathers giving them the eye across the other side of the hedge. Rabbits are just watching and waiting for me to get some juicy lettuce in the kitchen garden. The daffodils are just starting to appear and buds on the trees are starting to emerge with a leaf within. My little apricot tree that we planted in the garden last year is just waiting for a few warm days to blossom, but I tell it to hold off just for a few more weeks if not it will have to have a warm fleece on at night to keep it cosy and protect those little baby fruits growing. Sadly one of my girls from the orchard died at the weekend she was a very old bird but had a very good life. Her pal is missing her though and I fear she will give up soon as they were the same age and were inseparable like bookends.She has had a few cuddles today and given first peck of the corn at tea-time and a few grapes which she loves.
Well look forward to speaking to you all soon. Would love to hear from you. Have fun.
