Pear blossom confetti! πŸŽ‰ The orchard is carpeted with little white cascading petals,falling more prolifically with the rain....

Apple blossoms to cheer us on this rather rainy day! So sad to see most of the Pear blossom falling,but the hens are super excited πŸ“they love to peck away at the scattered confetti petals of the blossom,so there is today's silver lining!πŸ˜‰ Am sorry if I am not up to speed on messages etc,my ankle has been so swollen & painful this week have had to visit the doctor... All is fine & dandy for now but have to return next week for another scan. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend,whatever the weather.... 🌸🌸🌸🌸 #springblossoms #treeblossoms #blossomtree #bloomingtrees #springtree #bloomingtree #springishere #lovespringtime #beautifulspring #springtime🌸 #appleblossom #springgarden #appletree #fruittrees #kitchengarden #gardenersofinstagram

Well hello there! This is one of many Newts spotted by my son who has a keen & watchful eye for these prehistoric looking amphibians. Just hanging in the pond. I say hanging as they just float in the depths of the pond,sometimes attaching themselves to the pond weed. Motionless for a while then a quick dart & flash of the tail & he is off to another quiet spot. The newts don't live all year round in the pond as I originally thought,they come out of the water after breeding & I have often found them happily living in the vegetable garden,living on the worms πŸ› & beetles. Occasionally when digging up new potatoes! πŸ₯” hence am now VERY cautious when harvesting the spuds! It's been a great weekend for wildlife spotting,have you had any finds now the warmer weather is with us? πŸ˜‰πŸ’šπŸ¦ŽπŸ’šπŸ¦ŽπŸ’šπŸ¦ŽπŸ’šπŸ¦ŽπŸ’šπŸ‘€ #newts #pondlife #gardenwildlifeuk #britishwildlife #bbcspringwatch #herpetology #herpsofinstagram #matingseason #uk_wildlife_images

Proud mummy 🐣πŸ₯🐣x 10 little chicks. One of our lovely Wyandotte hens took herself off to the old stables & nestled herself down in a feed manger for 3 weeks..... Keeping a distance but checking daily,we left her in her chosen spot! Today we are rewarded & captivated by these happy little chicks,always busy & often keeping warm under their mum... Best Saturday night in ages! 😊🐣πŸ₯🐣😍 #wynadotte #babychicks #cluckcluck #chickensofig #chickengram #ilovechickens #instachicken #chickenlife #poultry #chickensaspets #chickensofinstagram #crazychickenlady

Busy little bees 🐝 on a beautiful sunny day the cherry πŸ’ blossom is humming with activity. Speaking of busy,were you more productive today & yesterday? Do you find that the sunshine gives you more energy tackling all the tasks in a day? Am struggling with the south facing garden beds in the warmth,the dear & cheerful tulips 🌷 are fully blown & veering downwards..... Bluebells & grape hyacinths also gasping,time to move these beauties into more shade & now the trees have grown we planted over 30 years ago, I know just the spot 🐝🌷🐝🌷 Enjoy your evening & hope you watch the sun go down... #honeybee #savethebees #bee #bees #pollinator #busybee #orchard #cherryblossom #cherryblossomseason #pinkblossom

It's hard to believe hat two days ago, I came across the most beautiful Brimstone butterfly πŸ¦‹ dancing around the garden,whilst intermittently basking in the sunshine on the Forsythia bush! At one point the Brimstone settled beside Mr Pinkey,see in stories,who was also stretched out enjoying the suns warm raysβ˜€οΈ The sun is hiding a little today, but just every now & then we get a burst & the day lights up momentarily πŸ˜Šβ˜€οΈπŸ˜ Hope the day is good for you, enjoy the weather if it's a dry day your way!! We are expecting a few more lambs to come this weekend so nearly there now.... πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ #brimstone #butterflyconservation #savebutterflies #britishwildlife #butterfly #butterflies #nature #ukwildlife #spring #springtime #lepidoptera #insectsofinstagram #bbcspringwatch #forsythia

She really is a little dear! πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ˜ Latest addition to the flock is Domino the two day old Suffolk lamb. When she was born she was so very tiny & frail we had to bring her into the kitchen in a cardboard box filled with straw & warm her up. Managed to get some of her Mum's colostrum into a jug & bottle fed her 🍼 Now she is skipping all over the kitchen when not fast asleep 😴 See in stories! Loving all the activity today & basking in the sunshine,today was definitely a sprightly Spring day! Hoping you all managed to enjoy some of the sunshine β˜€οΈ #lambs #lambsofinstagram #lambing #lambingtime #lambingseason #lambing2018 #sheeplife #sheeplove #babysheep #farm_snaps #springlambs #onthefarm #distractionsandinspirations #tinymoments #ruralliving #lifeonthefarm #farmlife #countryliving #countrylife #lifeinthecountry #countrylifestyle #myeverydaymagic #embracingtheseasons #aseasonalshift

The lambs are happily enjoying time out in the field whilst their mums enjoy some fresh green grass πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘ It's always a treat to watch the lambs at play as they scamper & jump higher & higher,whilst exploring their new surroundings & make new friends. Am in the garden picking flowers & spring blossoms for the kitchen table which my mother & I will decorate together later this afternoon for our Good Friday family supper 🐣 However the table is strewn with amplifier parts including very small screws etc as my son, who is a musician & his dad are trying to locate a problem..... Meticulous placements need little disturbance πŸ˜‰have a feeling we will be having our supper on laps & pay homage to the afore mentioned beast 😌but the boys are forgetting my mothers imminent arrival..... Am thinking there maybe a seasonal shift so to speak πŸ˜‰ Wishing you all a happy Easter 🐣 weekend & lots of hot cross buns & chocolate eggs to enjoy ... Yes more chocolate please! 🐣🍫🐣🍫 #primrose #primroses #woodlandflowers #springgarden #mygarden #inmygarden #inmygardentoday #spring #signsofspring #springisintheair #springblooms #springtime🌸 #flower_daily #easterflowers

Feeling a little peckish πŸ‘πŸ’šπŸ‘ in the lambing barn this evening! See in stories how little Arrow is thriving. It's one of the most euphoric moments watching the lambs suckle from the ewes πŸ’šNew life, new grass, spring awakening πŸ’šπŸ‘πŸ’šπŸ‘πŸ’š Have not mentioned the lambs in my kitchen.... 🍼 fed & four hourly feeds. The happiest sound in the morning now is hearing them bleating for the first feed,stumbling into the farm kitchen to mix the milk powder & wishing I had octopus πŸ™ hands! πŸ‘πŸ˜‰πŸΌπŸ˜πŸΌπŸ‘ #lambing #lambing2018 #lambinglive #lambingseason #babysheep #sheeps #sheeplife #sheeplove #sheepofinstagram #sheepfarming #eweandlamb #country_features #countrystyle #lambs #lambsofinstagram #springlambs #farm_snaps #onthefarm #countrylifestyle #lifeonthefarm #farmliving

I'll follow the sun,said the ewe to its little lamb as all you have seen so far is snow & blizzard, drifts of bitingly cold weather, for one so young. There is more dear one,there is spring & good grass to come, days like today when you can sun yourself & curl up basking in its warmth. #lambing #lambinglive #lambing #lambing2018 #lambingseason #babysheep #sheeps #sheeplife #sheeplove #sheepofinstagram #sheepfarming #eweandlamb #country_features #countrystyle #lambs #lambsofinstagram #springlambs #farm_snaps

I hear you knocking...... β„οΈπŸ“πŸ‘β˜ƒοΈπŸ“πŸ‘β˜ƒοΈβ„οΈ The pond has frozen & so the poor Moorhens who have been nesting quite happily on 'the island' are now quite exposed to predators 🦊🐱🦊 We are on snowball patrol!

The fireplace & hearth is the heart of a home. It is the place that warms the whole house & your toes! After feeding the ewes & letting the birds out it would seem,there will be little dust bathing for the bantams today!more of a snow bath! πŸ›€ πŸ“πŸ›€πŸ“Here's to you all keeping warm & toasty today & layering well! whatever you are doing inside or out! πŸ”₯β„οΈβ˜ƒοΈπŸ’™β„οΈ #realfireplace #realfire #openfire #cosy #cosyfire #logfire #bythefire #bythefireplace #bythefireside #homeiswherethehearthis #fireside #fireplace #fireplaces #fireplaceseason #countrylifestyle #countryliving #countrylife #lifeinthecountry #countrysideliving

Love Ewe! Am looking longingly at the flock today from my kitchen window. Snow has been forecast for most of the week & the lambs are due any day! Because of my accident πŸ™ˆam having to take a step back this year,feeling very guilty as hate not being able to see my girls & help with delivery when required. It's that amazing euphoric feeling,of new life,that connects you to all that surrounds you,I shall miss. On the plus side there are always a few little lambs in need of bottle feeding each year! 🍼🍼🍼 Not only do I get to cuddle them whilst feeding,they get to stay warm inside by the fire with me! πŸ‘πŸΌβ€οΈπŸ‘πŸΌβ€οΈπŸ‘ The beautiful handmade card was sent to cheer me up by my son! 😊It's made using real wool & has a lovely warming texture to the touch! 😍 Makes up for not shepherding at the moment & such a thoughtful choice of card,love it! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ #vanessabeedesigns #instaknit #knitlove #knitstagram #sheep #knitaddict #loveknitting #yarn #handmade #handmadewithlove #handmadecards #cards #cardmaking #sharinghandmadejoy #greetingcard #greetingcards #funnycards #getwellsoon #shepherdess

Inspired finds in the garden! πŸ’š My dear mum has been looking after me whilst the broken ankle heals...
