Today has been such a contrast with yesterday. Instead of a howling wind and grey skies, it was gloriously sunny, calm and, yes, warm. Just as well as it was volunteer work day at Old Sleningford Farm.
We were in my favourite part of the farm, the Forest Garden, planting sweet peas and spreading manure round the fruit bushes. I was quite taken with the framework for the peas – much sturdier than my bamboo canes for the beans. And the wild flowers looked a treat.

To round off the day, I decided to have a drive along the roads near the farm that I had not been down before. And I am glad I did, because there was a beautiful little village, Mickley, which I could live in any day…..
