Mad as a March Hare

It's a lovely day today, sunny and warm. The chickens think it is great, they don't like the cold and snowy weather. Cottages are looking good, we have the decorators in. Tuesday is the big day, we have the grading visit for the Green Tourism Business Scheme. We have been running around like the proverbial mad hares ensuring all the required elements are in place.
It's been interesting, looking forward to getting feedback from our guests.

February wildlife

The curlews have arrived and the snowdrops are in full bloom.
The wild garlic is poking through and the crocuses are appearing. Robins are getting territorial. We've started our tree planting programme - 50 Elderberry trees before April !
