Shades of blue

Not much time for blogging these days with our busiest season ever taking up much of my time. I still make time to pay brief visits to my favourite blogs however and yesterday I enjoyed seeing Cecilia’s beautiful white hydrangeas. So, I thought that I’d show you our blue ones!



From flora to fauna, the Muscovy ducklings are pretty much all grown up now. Twelve of them are lucky enough to have found new homes but of course the remainder will have a somewhat shorter life. We’re planning on doing evening meals next year for our guests so I guess that duck will find itself somewhere on the menu! The wee chicks in the foreground of the next picture are BB’s. She’s down to five now as one developed breathing problems and couldn’t keep up. She’s such a happy girl though, spending most of her time with them foraging in the field behind us.

      It’s strange but when it’s twilight, the blue becomes even more vibrant. We’ll be enjoying our first duck and roast spuds on Monday – Kevin’s birthday treat! Some beetroot too I think!

    Such a lovely flock, dear lady, and the blue hydrangeas are in peak form! I’m in love with blue flowers anyway…. 🙂

    The flowers look even more stunning in twilight conditions!
