April Fool’s Day and Easter Fun
Combining April Fool’s Day and Easter Sunday gave us a chance for some Easter Magic on the farm covered in my Easter Egg hunt post this week. We had 3 new baby rabbits arrive to join Buster featured in my picture here today and our lambs now total 6. With the first mow of the year complete and the new growth sprouting in the hedgerows it is finally feeling very springlike here at Coombe Mill. I hope you have enjoyed a lovely Easter break yourself with plenty of family fun in the great outdoors to help wear off the Easter Eggs! Please do share with me on the link up is below.
