New Beginnings…

It’s a beautiful, sparkly day here at Under the Oak and we are busy getting everything ready for our first guests to arrive in the spring.

So with spring in mind, I took a little stroll up to the pond to see if the bulbs which we planted during a blizzard back in December have made an appearance yet.

They have made rather more of an appearance than we had hoped – in fact they were strewn all over the floor, turfed up by some mystery creature! Rabbit? Fox? Badger? Suggestions welcome.

Elsewhere on the farm, the poor battery hens who we re-homed a few weeks ago are looking perky, although still rather bald.

No eggs yet but we are hopeful that by the time our first guests arrive they will be settled in and laying well. We have re-homed hens before and it’s amazing how healthy and happy they are with a little tlc!
