My lovely retired Guide DogIMG_0788 Vince is pictured here in our own bluebell woods with my new Guide Dog Quasia, she is a lot smaller than Vince.

They get on very well apart from the odd argument over the same toy!  Our outdoor pool is now open and heated to between 26 to 30 C and we were worried about the possible danger to Quasia should she jump in and be trapped under the solar cover.  Like Vince did she quickly learnt that she must not go in the pool but she loves to lie on the side and watch over any swimmers.IMG_0785

We have 28 acres and at the moment the flowers are a picture.  We have our Bluebell wood but also there are still primroses out and an area of Wild Orchids, Devon Violets, Campion and Fox Gloves.  There are also deer in the woods and here is a picture of a Bullfinch resting outside Laughing Waters (our woodland retreat).

Today the weather is glorious and very warm.  We hope to welcome you and that we keep this lovely weather.
