|My gorgeous man turns fiddy next Saturday and we had an early celebration for him yesterday. Happy he was; visited and gifted and very much loved up by his best mates and family. So good to see him beaming with joy.|

|We sprouted lots of flower seedlings - Calendular, Cosmos and Sunflowers, red and yellow - our favourite garden flowers. This morning the sun inspired us to plant.|
|Calendular around the apple tree. I'm making calendular oil for our skin and drying petals for tea.|
|The echium about to bloom - we planted it for the bees - all the flowers are for the bees - our spring gift to them for all their hard work....|
|We have to implement a snail plan for the sunflowers. They love those little seedlings so we must cover them each night.|
|The top bar hive is in action again. A new swarm collected by Big Honey last night (on the bicycle no less - our car gave up on us on Friday!) I very much wish to make Big Honey a bee suit for such ventures.....|
We have been eating our salami - it is so good! Next year we will make much more, and prosciutto too. Nitrate free!
Soon we will plant the legendary tomatoes we inherit from Illias, and cucumbers, greens, beans, basil, peppers, and passion fruit for the children! I would love to have an avocado tree, oranges, lemons, grapes....gradually.
