A farmers toast!

Let the wealthy and great, Roll in splendour and state, I envy them not i declare it, I eat my own lamb, My chickens and ham, I shear my own fleece and i wear it, I have lawns,I have bowers, I have fruits,I have flowers, The lark is my morning alarmer, So joyful boy's now, Here's god speed the plough, Long life and success to the farmer!!

Shake a leg mother nature! cheer us up.

I'm out looking for signs ! something to enthuse
And convince me that spring is here!

And despite the grey sky and sodden ground,,
And the deep chill i think i found some.

Yes i did xx hip hip horray..


  1. A cheer up after yesterdays dreary blog.xx Thank you all.

  2. Lovely pictures! Spring all over the place. Wonderful!

  3. Oh Bodran yesterday's blog wasn't dreary - sad yes not dreary.

    Yes Spring is creeping in here as well . . .

    Bodran would you like a Digging for Bud.

  4. No best not to dwell, thank you though .

  5. Fantastic pictures, Bodran! Makes me feel all springy too.

  6. Very sad about Bud.
    Lovely pictures.
    and, wrt slugs and scissors, no Of course I don't - they're over the wall with the turds. But people DO, and there's a certain something to be said for a quick death compared to having your brains nibbled out.

  7. I thought spring was here but it is pouring with rain and so dark today that it could almot be November - deeply unhappy!!! xx

  8. Hey, Bodran! Finally getting round to catching up on blogs - saw your extension pics. Are you mad, woman? Haven't I put you off? Hope to see you again soon.x
