To make sure they have made it through the night and to give them fresh water (with the life-saving apple cider vinegar and garlic) and to have my fingers attacked in their manic eagerness to find treats, so, as I say, nothing different regarding the time of day, but I don’t usually do the standing and staring bit quite so early because Chea is always at my heels, waiting for her breakfast.

I have a system; Chucks, fish, open the greenhouse, Chea, and finally, me …a cup of tea. The standing and staring bit comes later, usually.

Small, but interesting though a bit chilly in the shady areas. Dates back to Elizabethan but site gies back to the Doomsday Book though that part now is just a high stone wall. Donkey driven waterwheel for 200 ft deep well, house built by The Knowllyes head in 1500s and a Cromwellian House, white-faced calves and cowsm woods an more. I can do little wlking but there was wisteria in bloom, delicate but lovely scent. A walkaround path maze though did not get to that.
