Celebrations started here
Preparing for the festive season at the Dulwich Christmas Fair...
Early spring 2017
It's been far too long since I added anything to this page: Christmas, New Year, a family 90th birthday celebration and a holiday on the other side of the world have all intervened. But we got back to Somerset this week to welcome our first Spring guests in both the Barn and the Shepherd's Hut. And it really does seem as though Spring has come early this year. The garden is full of snowdrops, daffodils, crocuses and primroses; there are catkins on the twisted willow and in all the hedges; and there have been some spectacular 'red sky at nights'! The vineyard is being sprayed with natural fertilizer as I write, and the blue tits have begun investigating their favourite nesting place in the hole in the wall opposite our kitchen. As our most recent Shepherd's Hut guest put it: "A wonderful place to spend a couple of days getting away from it all... Truly lovely."
