Naomi, Phoebe and William enjoyed picking wild grasses and ferns from the hedgerows on the farm. They came into the house and arranged them in recycled jam jars ready to be entered in the village Flower and Vegetable Show. They were all delighted to win a prize.
Exciting news. Our wildflower meadow is germinating and the first stage of the Wildflower Project is a success. Now we must have keen eyes for spotting creeping thistles, dock and stinging nettles which we must weed out by hand as they will smother the wildflower seedlings which grow much, much slower than these weeds.
This is the children's favourite oak tree. It fell down many years ago but is luckily still living and growing. This makes it the perfect tree for climbing. The children call this part of the farm their 'playground' as they love balancing and clambering around the branches and eating picnics there.
