The Bluebells are back!

Around 18 months ago we cleared some very overgrown rides in Easter Wood

Around 18 months ago we cleared some very overgrown rides in Easter Wood
that had become impassable making it impossible to thin out trees and allow
light into various areas of this lovely ancient woodland. We were delighted
to see the bluebells back in full strength this year (and maybe even better
than before now that sunlight can make it through the tree canopy). Of
course a little more work is necessary this year to clear the ravages of the
February storms.

 We're fortunate to be enjoying some glorious sunshine here at Mornacott.  Spring is definitely in the air as our walk up to Easter Wood, to enjoy the bright and cheerful daffodils, will attest. 

Spring is always an exciting time here with the promise of warmer weather, baby animals and a whole host of new and returning guests to enjoy it with us.

Having lost a barn wall in storm Arwen we’d hoped that might be the end of it.

Eunice however had other ideas and in addition to more minor damage to roofs to various buildings and several gates she made short work of one of the more modern barns depositing most of the roof into a nearby field.
