Country Diary for week Ending 2nd September

The last week of winter was wet and windy, but we managed to get some building work done for some seating and the wood fired pizza oven.    The first day of spring was announced with an asparagus spear punching out of the ground, where it was promptly munched by some red-legged earth mites.

I missed most of the sunrises this week either because it was cloudy or I slept in.  The welcome swallows have finished their new nest and feathered it with the black and white spotted feathers of the guinea fowl.  We turned over the compost bins and planted some shrubs to mark the graves of some of our birds.

The horses were out and about doing their thing, and I photographed 2 very common yellow flowers, one a weed and one a native, and caught the metallic sheen on a hover fly.

  1. Cathy,
    You impress me to tears… you are such a sensitive soul. The orchid album is amazing!… are they so many in your forest and around? I liked each word you wrote; you are “a true writer”! Your photographs of sunrise, sunset, moon warmed my heart. I had a great morning today reading your diary; keep going. You achieved so much with the land since 2009, but above all is your soul who is rising higher and higher each morning when you wake up in the paradise of your farm!
    Love
