Our new woodland.
Eight Silver Birch and one Rowan. These were purchased at Howford Farm, Strichen. This is a plant and tree centre run by my friends Moira and Gammack. They also run a training centre for adults with special needs.
This bridge is a listed building, possibly Roman. The farm has a wonderful setting by the River Ugie.
Every year, since its inception, The Rotary Club of Central Buchan holds its duck race at Howford.
Here are the ducks being launched.
And on their way.
As you can see it was not a very nice day, but I didnt care, I was in the barn with a wood burning fire and a bottle of red. The DP reckons to be an ace photographer, so let him get on with it!
Also, delivered today, courtesy of B&Q our new shed. This is a very kind thought from the DP, and is to house the garden tools which currently are in MY shed and I fall over regularly, that is over the garden fork and spade etc. Not from any red wine, of course.
Unfortunately the trees and the shed are to sit there for a while. The DP has a sore throat, and I have YET ANOTHER B***** chest infection.
However he can still manage his dawn patrol, and met this hare. He also managed to collect my antibiotics. Tho he probably infected me in the first place, so fair dos.
