Oh what a lovely morning, just a little bit of rain during the night. The garden is looking so colourful various yellows, blues pink and lots of greenery.

I have just been a walk down the garden. Ive seen the stoat with a rabbit much bigger than itself, and it didn't drop it when it saw me, I think it must have babies, I'm just a bit worried about the hens.

The pond is full of tadpoles. I moved a lot of toads yeterday when I was weeding. I think the birds are using the nest boxes again, the Holly hedge does appear to have a lot of activity in it as well.

more about the cheese and wine event

The Garden Cottage Website As you can see we had a full house for the quiz and looking at two of the revellers ts the end a good time was had by all. The winners were from Hurst Green. Thanks to everyone that helped make the evening a success.

We have just finalized the purchase of some land adjoining the our garden. The hens and bantams think they have died and gone to heaven. A friend has lent us some sheep to eat the grass down, when this is done we aim to plant some broad leaf trees.
I helped to organize a cheese and wine evening for St James church at the weekend, we raised £781.00 pounds but I'm still tired. Next thing up is the Inglewhite litter pick on the 22nd of this month, it usually rains, but heh ho we won't melt as my dad used to say!
The stoats are getting more cunning we don't see as much of them now, there seems to be lots of baby rabbits around. so long as they leave the hens alone they are welcome.
