The first signs of spring - That could be so many things from flowers to lambs and other baby animals.. even comfrey sprouting back. So get snapping!

There's a prize! Either a copy of either of my books or if you've got them both (bless you!) a copy of Virginia Shirt's The Right Way to Keep Chickens

First butterfly to visit our garden this year!

After chasing the butterfly round the garden (and saving it from nearly being eaten by the cat!) this is the best shot I could get of the little blighter!  :)

Snappy 

No amount of time can erase the memory of a good cat, and no amount of masking tape can ever totally remove his fur from your couch.

I could give up chocolate but I'm not a quitter.
