Nearly all our Winter work is finished in order to make our rooms sparkling for Springtime and we are currently gardening and planting plants. In our valley we are a frost pocket – lovely sunny days but still overnight frosts.  Lovely and cosy in our rooms, each with its own log fire – but not so good for the plants overnight.

But the snowdrops don’t mind the cold and now the daffodils are in bud.Vince and I like bluebell time best because our woods are usually carpeted in blue and we have lovely photos of Vince amongst the bluebells.

We have just had the incognito visit from the English Tourist Board Inspector and I am happy to say we were again awarded 5-Stars and the Gold Award and also the Best Breakfast Award.  So we are ready to welcome you all again and of course Vince is to.
