Dry weather at last

What a glorious week we've just had ! We spent as much of the week as possible in our allotment, preparing outside beds for planting and marvelling at how much drier the ground is. This week may be a different story apparently. Really looking forward to the clocks going forward at the weekend.

By the way, if anyone has any advice on siting bird boxes please leave a message.

Signs of Spring at Foxhill

Below are just a few of the things that are happening around Foxhill Barn to suggest that Spring is on its way: -

Snowdrops, primroses and crocuses are all showing in the garden, and our daffodills have begun to push through. In the hedgerows the trees are starting to bud and the hazel is providing an impressive display of catkins.

We have spent the weekend planting onions, broad beans and peas in our polytunnel and are hoping that the worst of the cold weather has passed as we would like to get on with planting outside.

Walkers who are interested in river routes may be interested to know that there is a feature on the Ribble Way in this month's Country Walking Magazine. As the author discovered, it may be preferable to walk it from sea to source.
