Welcome Sunshine on the Farm

Posted on February 27th, 2016


Finally we saw the sun reappear. I became a little over excited seeing our soggy farm bloom again and found myself out snapping away rather than working in order to soak up the rays and appreciate the beauty around me. As a result I’ve struggled to narrow down my favourite photos this week but have settled on the most story worthy: 


First sunlight of the day rising over the hills and reaching our valley. I love how it just catches the mossy roof top of our log store and reflects off the still damp Cornish slate tiles. It gives a promise of the day that was to follow. 



A dry day gave us the chance to have a huge bonfire clearing out the last of the internal wood from the old Riverside lodges and pieces of wooden furniture left after our charity sale, more on this one to follow in a separate post. I find a good fire quite mesmerising and couldn’t resist a little slow mo of the dancing flames. 




Needless to say the animals were delighted to feel the sun on them. I threw a handful of grass in for the rabbits on passing and giggled as two of them munched on the same piece from outside in till they met in the middle and looked like they were kissing!

Shhhh……. we also had babies born this week, but without fluff they look more like like baby mice at the moment, hopefully they will be old enough to take out of the nest for a quick photo next week.

 My personal favourite photo of the week was this i-Phone snap taken walking up our lane as the sun set.

I hope you’ve had a good week and are looking forward to spring now that March is almost here.
