Wet weather continues

The wet weather continues but we have seen some January colour in the garden. The gales have continued and it certainly is blustery!

Flooded again and longing for spring

Well, the River Frome has burst its back again - flood water everywhere in the valley and there seems no end to the rain. The warm hot spring last year now seems a long time ago. For those that have forgotten follow the link to the BBC website for a refresher on those balmy days. I cheered myself up a lot! I haven't posted any more photographs because at the moment the farm doesn't look as though much has changed over the last few weeks - a bit of sunshine and it will be a different story. The daffodils are peeking through on the drive though - I will take some photos when they are in bloom - the promise of spring.

Clun Castle

We also visited Clun Castle on New Years Day which proved a refreshing walk to the top of the castle mound! When we got there the views were magnificent.

New Years Day walk

On New Years Day we went for a walk near Bishops Castle in South Shropshire and saw lots of strange fungi and fauna - a good day to blow out the cobwebs.
