This is our beautiful Horse Chestnut tree. The colours have been spectacular this year. Someone grew it from a conker and gave it to us when very small. It has thrived and grown each year and is now old enough to produce conkers.

Day Out

We treated ourselves to a day out and went to Castle Howard, courtesy of free tickets won in a competition. It's only about an hour's drive away and turned out to be a lovely day. The weather was perfect; the house and grounds were amazing; we had an excellent lunch and the garden centre provided a selection of plants that I hadn't already got. What a day! We can certainly recommend it - even if you do have to pay for your tickets!!

New Visitors

We had two new visitors this week. Beautiful male pheasants - really colourful. As usual, I didn't have the camera and by the time I'd found it, they'd gone! We sometimes see them in the depths of winter when food is scarce and they make for the veggie patch.

Gilbert re-appeared yesterday. We hadn't seen him since I'd had to 'fence off' the apple trees to stop him helping himself. He must have been sulking!! One or two of the ducks have very light coloured feathers and we are wondering if they are Gilbert's offspring. The duck in the foreground is a possible example - what do you think?
