Hello, Adam here – Hope Becky is having a fab holiday in the sun! It certainly has been very arid here at Mersehead, in fact yesterday Jude my housemate found a sundried toad on the beach – thank goodness not a natterjack, but still not very pleasant for it (although interesting to us!). The sun gave quite a kick start to the summer and finally the Hawthorn is in bloom and the damsel/dragonflies are hovering about. The rain of the last few days has rehydrated a lot of the wilting garden plants and hopefully improved the soil conditions enough for Eric to sow the grass seed in some of the larger fields.
Those hares were really laying it in to each other, very sturdy animals.... well, I should probably get back to finishing my college work – all going well I will have an HNC in Countryside Management by the end of next week! Then onto the job applications...
Hope everyone is having a fab summer, whatever the weather!
Glad to hear Mersehead is doing well - looking forward to coming back in October.
Best of luck with your HNC and job hunting :)
