CowslipsFantastic weather this Easter week! Each day has been getting warmer – blue sky, sun beating down, recorded a temperature of 30ºC (in the sun) on the terrace today! The housemartins have returned and have started to build their nests in the rafters of the barns – they swoop in and out throught the little gaps in the wall like kamikaze fighter pilots!

Everywhere new life is sprouting – the hedgerows are spattered yellow with cowslips and you can almost watch the grass growing before your eyes.
