A sunny afternoon in the Orchard

25th March 2014
Lovely day here in Devon, although the wind is a bit chilly.



Baz & I went out into the orchard to take a photo of the Thingies (above) (Hostas???) and the Daffodils.


And we got waylaid by the hens!











(well it was a lovely day! By the time I came in, had a cuppa & piece of homemade Kathy-Cake and answered a few e-mails - the sky had clouded over & it is now chucking it down outside. :-(

An Adventure with a sheep...

...and March in the Woods  (14th March 2014)

Ewe lookin' at me?
There was a heavily pregnant (with twins) ewe in our lane. She shouldn't have been in the lane, she should have been in her field.

Bit of a job getting her back - Adam, Kathy, me and the farmer, because said ewe preferred to be in the lane.

We convinced her eventually that she really would be better off with her companions!

Hey ho - life is full of fun here in Devon!" (Ha! Didn't get this sort of thing in London!)

***
and here are a couple of photos from my walk in the woods on Thursday (13th March)

This is the outside of my West Windo in my study - note the primroses!

and back home for a cuppa!

The Chickens and the Other Gardener...

8th March 2014

Lovely day today - the sun is shining, though it is still a bit chilly in the shadows and the wind has a bit of a nip to it - still, it's time the garden was attended to...

so Ron's turn to do some gardening - inevitably helped by the Girls! LOL

Devon Wedding - Adam Blee & Kathy Hollick (family photos)



The heading line will be the last time I write my daughter's name as Hollick - she is now Mrs Adam Blee.


And Adam is the son-in-law any Mum would wish for!

Chloe, Adam, Kathy, Sam
Rather than rabbit on - apart from saying thank you to Maid of Honour Sam, Bridesmaid Chloe, Best Man Rob, the two Witnesses, Matt and Mal - and to the official photographer, the Violinist Paul, the entertainers  the Magician and the Caricaturist,, the DJ, and all the wonderful staff at Northcote Manor - I'll share the day in photographs - only a few at the moment, but I'll add more during this next week as friends send them, so call back often!

(Official photos will be with us in about a week - after Adam & Kathy are back from Honeymoon)

These were on Facebook, taken by various friends (apologies for not good quality, most were taken on mobile phones)
