What a wet time we have all had. Patsy is secretly delighted as the garden is getting lots to drink. I seem to spend a great deal of time splashing around in the puddles and then having hot baths most days.
I do like to check the borders for mice and they love tulips, but maybe not so much at Chalfield where our bulbs get covered in a Cayenne Pepper paste before they are planted: as mice and voles do not like that taste. Thank goodness my delicious bones that I bury have not been treated in such a way!!
The swallows are back which everyone loves to see but poor Pam who looks after the church gets put out when they return to their warm beams in the nave to start another family and Oh the mess!. They really need a little lesson from us doggies. I really cannot help, at my age I am simply not able to jump that high.
