I loved these guys!



I could not resist these guys when I saw them on my travels in the Cotswolds - a mix of traditional breeds and full of individuality.  Suckler cows have such a strong mothering instinct and they are very protective. there was a strong wooden fence between me and their calves when I took the photos!

Phacelia plot



The previous photos have been of a mix of plants fodder radish, phacelia, and mustard (but only a small amount) - you cannot see the tritcale in the photographs but they contain this plant too to provide seeds for birds later in the season. This plot is just phacelia and it is vey busy.
