Rain on the horizon
We are forecast to have a week of perfect spring weather, fingers crossed.
Bluebells and wild garlic
Spring is here
So many berries everywhere this year.
Crisp autumn days
We have had a week of gorgeous weather and finally it feels like spring is here. Let's hope we get a summer too!
Slim pickings this year, there are quite a few of them but they are all rather small and sad looking.
Ilfracombe to Croyde
Our raspberry canes have taken over the top end of the garden and we have been picking punnets of them every day for weeks now.
Broomhill Sculpture Garden
We set off from Ilfracombe in the morning for a 12 mile walk along the coastal path taking in all of our favourite places; Ilfracombe Tunnels, Lee Bay, Bull Point, Morthoe, Barricane, Woolacombe and Putsborough beaches and finally Baggy Point. We arrived mid afternoon in Croyde in time for tea at Sandleigh.
The Broomhill Sculpture Garden is a lovely place to go for an afternoon stroll in the woods and head back to the hotel afterwards for tea and cake. We all loved these tiny figures by Carol Peace.
Sheltering from the rain
We made the most of the brief spell of sunshine and headed out for one of our favourite walks around Morte Point. You can start in National Trust car park in Mortehoe, walk around the point ready for a cream tea at the end. Look out for seals on the north side, we saw seven, our largest number of sightings yet.
Smile, and repeat after me "It's good for the plants".
St George's Church, Georgeham
Good to see the sun out again this morning.
Spring term ends with a children's Easter service at the village church and the churchyard is worth a quiet wander at this time of year. There are some delightful architectural features, swathes of wildflowers and blossoming trees.
Another frost this morning, we might have to keep the fires lit for a little bit longer.
There are lambs everywhere we look, can there be anything cuter than lambs' knees?
