It’s an ill wind and Canine hospitality

This wind is an abomination, blowing cruelly from the north east, it is trashing all the blossom and new leaves, drying out the seed beds and stopping the grass from growing, the ewes and lambs are stoic but getting hungry…they are grumbling to me and beginning to eat hay again and the wind makes me cross!
The weather is so closely tied to the phases of the moon, there is a new moon on the 26, and, hopefully, it will rain, and the seeds that I have sown, and the grass, will begin to grow, and my temper will improve!

We had a lovely Easter Sunday, only one babe in arms, so adults had to do the egg hunt, quietly searching for the hidden eggs, delighted when they found one, though they had to circumnavigate Swampy, he was only too happy to help. He had, apparently, found one or two judging by the silver wrappers on the lawn and his ever so slightly smug expression. We had four very well behaved guest dogs on Sunday, all quietly laying under the tables, then being taken for a wander with their owners around the farm after the meal. I’m always so impressed with our two dogs, Beau, sadly on a chain on the lawn during our Sunday lunches, he is so very hospitable and friendly as many of you know, but does so love to take Swampy and any other dog for a few hours romp through the woodland, and Swampy, eternally kind and friendly. Neither of them take umbrage at guests dogs who came for a couple of hours, pee on their garden property and lay under the tables. True canine hospitality.
