Trying to catch up with spring

GoldfinchesTrying to catch up generally… We have been away for a few days and have let things stand still a bit too long for comfort on the blog front (I hasten to say everything else has pretty well gone on as normal thanks to Janet and the well-oiled Tom’s and Douglas’s Barns machinery!). Thanks to our online booking system, emails and Janet, it is very much easier to go away these days but certain things do get neglected such as keeping the blog up to date.

Another view of the pondThe house on the right, the slopes of Parwich Hill behindNow I have an iPhone, with time and experience, I should be able to carry on with everything as if we were sitting at home. Sadly, so far it is not quite like that. Technology is all very well, but so often silly glitches prevent things working as they should, if at all, and to date we can now receive emails on the iPhone but not send them (If anyone knows the solution, we shall be eternally grateful!).

Of course now, 5 days later it all looks far less advanced in these snaps than it actually does today. However, everything is looking wonderfully lush and sporing like. Everywhere is covered in white, with the blackthorn blossom all over the countryside, and in the garden the magnolia, the damson and plum blossom, and a beautiful osmanthus. Dotted everywhere are the vibrant colours now of the pansies and tulips and the last daffodils.Spring daffodils
