Spring 2017

Posted on March 19, 2017 at 6:49 AM
It's been a long time since my last update, for many reasons, mostly health related, but no boring details to follow.

The grass is growing, the daffodils and snowdrops are up and everything is bursting with life! We love this time of the year, it signals warmer weather, long awaited after the freezing temperatures we had in January and February. Down to minus 15C at one point! The pond froze over and even the waterfall froze with the water trickling under it, truly amazing and something we have never had before.

We are well ahead in the garden at the moment, vegetable patch already to be planted up, grass already cut - twice, and the seedlings up and strong in the poly tunnel. The dahlia tubers are on the bench and we are waiting for the first shoots to appear. Always an exciting time to see these tiny shoots become magnificent blooms in the summer.

We had a short time away in Provence in February, helping a friend move into her home. It was nice to have such a temperate climate, 18-20C. However, good to be back in the wonderful verdant Normandy. I know that goes with an large amount of rain, but well worth it to have such a lush environment.

The pond has been cleaned, the filters changed and our growing number of fishes are being fed again. We started off with 8 and now have an estimated 40! can't be exact as the little devils don't stand still enough to count accurately. Their environment obviously suits them and they are just increasing in number exponentially! We are told that they will only increase in numbers up to the size of the pond. We'll see what happens this year!

We already have several bookings and even have guests at this time of the year, which is unusual, so if you would like to spend time at La Ferme, book early.

Wishing everyone a wonderful 2017. Hope to see you soon.
