It has been a busy time on the farm, hence the late news…
The guests have been buzzing - unfortunately the bees are not… none in evidence at the hive yet - zip lining, walking, agate hunting, tractor riding – in fact I was sure I saw the horses wiping their brows when, at lunch time today, they were still doing rides up and down the driveway!
Spring is definitely showing it’s face. The bowling green has had its annual makeover and both tennis courts have been resurfaced and painted – waiting for all budding ‘Federer’s”! The thatching on the new tree house is underway, nearly ready for a quiet read with a drink while watching the kids clamber or play tennis.
There are signs of blossoms and green shoots popping out, along with cameo appearances from all three tortoises – always good to see them come out of hibernation well. The puppies (Molly and Sprocket) were not particularly impressed with these hissing and moving ‘rocks’, having forgotten that they met them in the summer when they were little. The tortoises seem unfazed by all the racket as did mommy pig today, who delivered three little piglets with a grand audience cheering on!
If you haven’t yet heard… (where have you been!) we have a Spring Special running from the 12 to 21 September 2016 only - 35% discount for a minimum two night stay – and we will still feed you! …Walking through the kitchen with the very delicious smell of fresh baked bread yesterday, I watched them prepare the broccoli and apple salad with its vibrant colours. Yum! Don’t delay… round up the family and join us.
Looking ahead to October – two special weekends to remember are the Stargazing weekend from the 7 – 9th and the Spider /Butterfly (and anything that wiggles) from the 21 – 23 October 2016. These have proved great fun for young and old, and if you don’t particularly like spiders wonderful to be able to understand and enjoy them (Celvin doesn’t yell for Angelique nearly as often anymore!!)
