The sun's out!!! Well, almost
And here's a great sign that spring is here - well almost!! The South Sands Ferry resplendent with flags. Still lots of customers about as well........... thanks goodness!
At last we have been able to start using our garden, and all the jobs we needed to do are at last starting to get done. The Chicken fencing is being tightened, tidied up and in some cases re-newed. The wiring has been a bit mucked up (to put it mildly!) as of course children are on the whole fascinated by the Chickens - that's when they're not chucking things at them or trying to poke them with straws (!) so of course they try to climb up the fence to get as close to them as possible............ :) Bending it beautifully out of shape.
Then there is the painting of the fencing out in the garden, next will come some planting. I'll take a quick trip out to a local nursery tomorrow to get some plants to brighten up the front of the pub and also at the top of the pathway to the garden. The bigger plants for the front of the pub have been ordered and will be coming in at the end of May - lots of bright colours this year and the lovely trailing stuff we have that causes so many great comments AND great pictures.
All jobs that we've been unable to undertake because of the flipping weather.
The Dipping Camembert now £1 cheaper and studded with Rosemary & Garlic is absolutely flying out the door!! Amazing........... the thing I've learnt most about this business is generally if we have what we think is a good idea, then generally we get it right. But sometimes, it may need a little tweaking - like the Camembert! Is it the reduced cost or the Garlic?? Who knows - all I do know is that now its selling!
