Was a real scorcher of a day today every one was sitting in the sun.
Some of my clan arrived and we managed to create a beautiful garden around the yurt. It was a fun filled day of heavy labour , digging and planting. Thanks girls. It was wonderful sitting out there. I gave Buddha a bath and he is sat there smiling away now. He was a gift from a friend so he has his own place created for him .
Some more pictures will be on site sometime next week.
It has been very hot again on site. Got the lawnmower going today but it has really had it. It keeps chucking out grass so its time to save up for a new one. Hope to get one for next year. Was also disappointed a bit today as the blue tits seem to have vacated the roof. The sparrows are still there but not one blue tit anywhere. Didnt think different bird food would make too much difference. It appears it does. So my first trip tomorrow will be town for some tit food. or maybe it was just the drone of the mower and the smell of the petrol. I felt pretty sick after with that smell. We will see tomorrow if they are around. Just now it is only sparrows going in and out the loft.
Looking forward to creating the garden the weekend so it will be a full on weekend again.
The river is still a bit low due to all the sun we are having. I cant complain its great.
What a lovely warm day today for sitting in the sun. I got to take a wee break by the bell tent today and check out the river. Its waters were a bit low but beautiful none the less. Its a full site tonight but still very peaceful .I notice the lawn needs a mow again, but am reluctant as I dont want to disturb the peace plus it would be daft zig zaging in and out of the campers pitches. So longish grass is there to stay for the weekend at least.
Chalet 2 which we dont use for clients has the birds nesting in the roof again. They have been doing this for the past few years. At the end of each year I go to fix it so they cant go in. It gets freezing and I want to set up some kind of hot perch for them outside with a shelter their poor little legs must get frozen. But of course I dont set that up. One year I will get something sorted but until then. I have decided to leave them in the loft of the chalet/reception. Talk about the phrase bats in your belfry . I got tits in my loft.! I love to watch them pop in and out. and know they have a warm place to stay when it gets cold. Guess you could say I have a loft avary . Not sure it will do the loft any good but I will sort that out when I get them a winter external warm perch sorted.
Enjoy your stay and dont forget to check out the yellow hut by the car park to see the birds in the loft.
