There was something eating my plants!

P1020321I could see that some thing was eating my new plants in the border but never expected quite so many snails in one night after putting down some environmentally friendly bait. Nearly 100 shells. I think they must have been wintering in the stone wall.

Jolly little caravan

P1020306What a lovely little caravan and such a jolly colour too. The owner says it is excellent , so easy to tow and well planned out inside.

Mud Pie Kitchen!

P1020305We have had fun making this Mud Pie Kitchen for the children in our little rustic play area, it even has a tiny sink unit and serving hatch.

Family home for Easter

P1020291It was lovely to have so many of the family here for Easter, we were closed for B&B guests so I could have time with the families that live down south.

Lambing is in full swing

20150326_174010 (1024x576)We would love to have just 2 lambs per ewe, as sheep only have 2 udders and lambs like to have one each. This ewe has had 4 lambs! So I will have to hand rear with a bottle 2 of them, which is a lot of work and often the lambs do not do as well as if they are reared by their mothers. At the moment we have 9 lambs that are on the bottle, fed 4 times a day.

Silver Catkins

P1020271These are the beautiful red stemmed willow’s catkins they grow round our little campsite, looking so sparkly in the sun, sorry they wont be there when the campsite re opens in April [weather permitting!]

Roman Recruits at Chester Fort

20150217_113348I took some of my many grandchildren to Chester’s Roman Fort on Hadrians Wall over half term to see if I could enlist them as new recruits! We had a very good time and spent about 2 hours at the site even though it was bitterly cold. It is one of the English Heritage sites along the wall and now I have bought a year’s membership,which also allows me to take up to six children at a time,[I think that would be rather an undertaking] so excellent value as there are quite a few English Heritage sites locally.
