New month, new beginnings
A new month bring new beginnings to Mowbarton and the surroundings...
I am sitting in the evening sun watching some stunning clouds on the horizon and deciding that perhaps summer has arrived. It is May Day after all.The winter rains seem to have worked some magic, and the wisteria on the Mowbarton stone walls is sensational this year. MAY - and the hedgerows are full of it! Everything is looking beautiful at the moment - even the rabbits are rather charming, as long as they don't get into the vegetable garden. And the sheep are back in our field to complete the picturesque scene. All I need now is to hear a cuckoo and I'll be perfectly happy. Last year I heard my first one on 20 April so it's a little late this year.
