April showers

There was some sadness at Garybuie over the weekend when another of the Cherry Bs died. Other than being quiet for a couple of days, there was no other visible sign of sickness, so it’s a bit of a mystery. At the moment the remaining Cherry B, along with Lucky, Chance and MacRae, all seem to be in good health, so all being well…

It’s not been all doom and gloom though as spring has definitely arrived with new life appearing both at Garybuie and throughout the glen…













































Of course we’re all familiar with the saying, “April showers bring May flowers”, but the abundance of several serious downpours over the past few days bring other less desirable results.

VERY muddy regular duck/chicken routes…

Kevin’s visible cringing at the sight of sprouting privet hedges and grass…

Bouts of unwelcome athleticism running in and out of the house dodging said showers whilst trying to perform general weeding – oh yes, they’re growing just fine! – along with planting out broad beans…

Of course nothing stops a man and his hammer and Kevin’s been determined to continue with his extension of the log store. One thing’s for certain, ‘The Beast’ certainly has a far more extensive larder than we do!

Whatever the weather, Snowball the cockerel ALWAYS finds something to crow about!
