A diary with a difference…..

A day in the life – minus the mowing…

Had a lovely day today, walked to work along the East coast, plenty of Shelduck, the bluebells still looking spectacular, but now with a deep carpet of grass breaking through, i really hope that we get rain this weekend, our thin soils need it..  Went for a walk around the island with the team, Matt joined us, with Wonky in tow.  That Wonky will follow us anywhere.  I think he got quite tired by the end of it.  I finished the island mowing, anything over 6 inches, mainly nettles and some of the larger thistles, i’m determined not to let any of the arum or nettles flower this year (no chance…).  I finished about 5:30 and wandered back to Driftwood, grabbing some lamb photos as i went.  Hope you like the pics

    Will you be keeping Wonky as a Flat Holm mascot or will he be leaving the island at the end of the season. Sounds as if he has stolen a few hearts over there. He is sooooo cute.
    Love your blogs, they make my day.
    Thanks Jane
