This is just a very quick post as I have lots I need to do. Tomorrow is my dad's eighty seventh birthday! We went to the Greenbean in Banbridge for coffee plus a scone for me and a raspberry and coconut traybake for him. A lovely treat though we do it pretty often anyway!
I don't need much of an excuse to go out for coffee. Actually, confession time, we went yesterday afternoon as well. Just because.
I wanted to show you my pear tree. It hasn't flowered like this ever before. I'm hoping we'll get lots of pears from it this year.
This was one of the apple trees a few days ago.
Now all of a sudden it's flowering. The rest of the apple trees are just ready to burst forth.
The copper beech hedge is looking rather sad now that it is losing its old leaves. But the buds are there just ready to produce new leaves for this year.
As you can see, the sheep and lambs are now in the field beside us.
The sheep are quite heavy now and the lambs are growing really quickly. A couple of times a sheep has rolled over onto its back and not been able to get up again. The husband has had to nip into the field and put them back on their feet. If they're left too long like that they will eventually die.
I'm really hoping the weather will improve a bit. April was very dry but May is making up for it. We've had so much rain. The temperatures are low too though, hopefully, there won't be any more frosty nights.
There will be more birthdays to come soon. If it's yours today, or soon, then have a great day!
