This wee little lamb was born on 14th February and they named him Valentine. Valentine's mother is a Dorset Horn, his father a Hampshire Down hence the black patches on his legs and head.

The community garden and transitions group Apple Day went well, including the planting of an apple tree demonstration not halted by a hailstorm!

Sunday we planned to get some things done at the allotment and then in the garden, but didn't really check on the weather forecast. It started raining as Imogen and I joined Alex at the allotment and got heavier until we decided to abandon and go home. It continued to rain as we had lunch so instead we decided to clear the annex to the house (much needed) and it was the right choice as another hailstorm pounded the roof.
