Bobbing along in the weather

A sunny morning at Ednovean Farm

We've had some lovely days this June although this weekend was "interesting" I saw a spaniel only this morning with its ears blowing in the wind as i sped along the A304 to collect more milk for the every waiting Lillie.
The weekend started well enough with a lovely day only uninterrupted at 6.00 a.m. ( Lillies starting time for milk ferrying) by strange dinosaur noises at coming from the front field. Sure enough, naughty Magic, had departed from his field, through the electric fence, across the hay field and through the wire fence, to join the ladies that lunch - our brood mares - and it might be mentioned a broken post and rail fence should also be taken into consideration. Luckily, the girls  were outraged by his suggestions, hence the angry squeals, with Diva and Dolly  pressed together, while little April did her best to fend off the intruder to their female household.  Magic  looked completely unabashed at his teenage faux pass and if he could, he would have beamed rather pleased with his own ingenuity and success. And so Magic was frog marched off back to his monastic life and the girls managed to force down a few oats to recover from the shock.

And so for us the lovely sunny day was spent mending the trail of damage across the farm with a big bag of newly purchased 4" nails and staples....the views across the bay were lovely though!

Life in the garden is settling down into lush contentment with the Echiums swaying towards the sky and each corner filled with fresh new growth

The Echiums are always a pleasure to see
