Well, Spring does seem to have arrived at last. There is a definite softness in the air and first primroses are peeping out.
Halsecombe has emerged unscathed from all the bad weather, apart from one of the birdtables and as our visitors really appreciate being able to sit up in bed or in the living room watching the birds close up, John has built two new and larger ones.
Despite what the TV would have you believe, the whole of Somerset is not entirely under water and in fact Porlock was luckily hardly effected by the downpours. The cottage is perched on the side of the hill so is unlikely every to flood.
Last year we put a new bower in the top garden so that our visitors could enjoy an early morning tea or coffee there or an early evening drink. This year we are levelling a piece of ground on which to put a table and chairs so that, weather permitting, visitors can have a meal out there whilst enjoying the lovely view.
Now that Spring has arrived, work should start very soon.
