Thanks Rob. Is that meadowsweet growing along the side of the water?

Yes, that was a particularly good patch of it, all in flower. There's a fair bit in the fields too.

If anyone reading this disagrees with my assertation that we need to eat more meat, this important landscape is what is behind it, and there isn't much of it left.

I hope that means you've taken more of your place.

I'm making a point of taking the camera with me a lot more - though it's not always easy to remember to use it when we're preoccupied with other things.

That's nothing compared to where the yearlings are going next - I was stood up and you couldn't see the wood for the grass...

Here's one of the steer calves from tonight, we've also had another new addition, another bull calf from Pebbles, also on the facebook page.

That looks heaven to me. If I lived close to you ( don't shudder ) I'd be a free volunteer to labour for free on your place.

Thanks, but be careful what you wish for - it's not all lovely sunset fields. There's a fair bit of looking at four white walls, such as I'm going to do now, preparing some of this weeks meat orders.
