Enjoying the orchard as it comes into bloom

Published on May 18, 2014, by in Diary, May, Through the year.

Like the rest of the country, we had magnificent weather on Sunday and I was able to spend a couple of hours cutting paths in the orchard before the grass completely takesĀ over. It was a real pleasure to be in such a lovely spot on a glorious afternoon.

January 2014 reference shots

These pictures were taken on a rare dry (and even for a moment sunny) break from the relentless rain and wind. A light coating of snow from yesterday evening is still visible on Dartmoor but generally the temperatures have remained relatively mild.

A number of molehills have appeared in and around the vegetable beds… could be interesting!
