Foxhill wood 10th anniversary

Foxhill Barn Bed & Breakfast 10 years ago we planted around a thousand trees, all native species, over 3 acres. It has been really satisfying to see their development over the years.

Martin Top circular walk

Foxhill Barn Bed & Breakfast

This morning I walked from Foxhill Barn to Martin Top, then did a circular before returning to Foxhill, a distance of about 5 miles. On a couple of occasions I came across wild garlic with its wonderful fragrance, and the bluebells and yellow poppies near Martin Top chapel were beautiful to behold.

Swallows' return

Foxhill Barn Bed & Breakfast

I saw a couple of swallows today, though I haven't managed to capture them on camera yet. They have returned to nest in our outbuildings, and it is lovely to hear them chirping away as it is a sign that Spring really is upon us at last.
