It’s been a bit of an up and down week for weather this week, we’ve had sunshine and enough heat to not wear coats, torrential rain, howling wind and then a couple of days where it’s been bitterly cold. We have managed to get outside every day though.
We’ve been busy finishing off our planting and have all the rest of our seeds and seedlings in. Our Broccoli is still inside for another week or so, but our first and second earlies potatoes are done, so fingers crossed we’ll get some nice heritage potatoes in about 10 weeks time.
In between planting, the girls have been drawing everywhere with pavement chalk, riding scooters, scuttlebugs and bikes, as well as bouncing like things possessed on the trampoline. The swallows have returned to nest in our barn and out buildings and they are causing fascination with their happy chattering. We’ve had lots of gazing into the air and baby waving, at these cheerful little birds.
Everything is beginning to turn green and I’m feeling confident and excited that we will have a long summer outdoors. Spring is well and truly in the air here and there is no doubt about how happy it makes our girls to get dressed and just rush outside. I’ve been flopping them into bed every night, contented and exhausted, the miracle sleep aid, that is fresh air
