April Showers




Well, it continues to be wet and windy, but the hedges are starting to thicken up and the leaves are budding on the trees. We have been tidying up the garden and fields amidst the showers. It is quite rare to have a strong easterly wind too. My weeping pear, that lived in a bucket for the first year of its life with us (we lived in a flat so it was planted in a bucket which we kept on our doorstep) is in blossom - one of my favourite trees in the garden.

As poultry owners, you might be interested in USDA's Biosecurity for Birds site. The USDA has just revamped it and it includes all kinds of useful information about bird flu and other bird diseases.

you should check it out.
