April has been an enjoyable month with lots of good weather and visits from family and friends. Mark came at Easter and Sam came and helped with some tree surgery.
|Bridget and Ian visited from Shropshire. We ate and drank, played cards and did some sight seeing.|
Paul and I have been playing bridge together on a Friday afternoon and we also played in a charity competition at a local stately home.
|It was a very big house with beautiful grounds and views but the room where we ate lunch was most unusual!|
We have spent a lot of time in the garden. Despite snow, rain, thunder and lightening there has been enough sun for me to get my traditional sunburnt nose!
|I planted out my sweet pea plants quite early. Fingers crossed for no late frosts!|
|I helped Paul remove the final annoying sycamores from the hedgerow. |
I pulled on the rope while he did the chain sawing.
They mainly fell where we wanted them to.
|We burnt some of the twiggy bits and pieces on a very large bonfire. |
This will eventually be the site of a raised bed so the grass doesn't matter.
|We have an unusual pink bluebell growing on the bank.|
Finally we bought some more eggs from the neighbouring chicken farmer.
|One egg was much bigger than the rest.|
|Farmer John was right it was a double yolk!|
