Happy alpacas…

It was time today to introduce this year’s cria and their mums to the far meadow. Lots of excitement at the vast expanse of lush green grass was followed by exploratory galloping before the herd reformed to settle down for the night.


Pumpkin thief!


This might sound unbelievable, but I just caught a fleeting glimpse of an old man leaving my garden on a mobility scooter laden with my prized pumpkins I’d just harvested. I wasn’t quick enough to get a photo as I was fully occupied chasing him on foot – lost him in the Hinton Road area (out of breath & very annoyed!)

If anyone gets offered cheap pumpkins by a dodgy looking old fella with mobility issues, please let me know…
