Target practice! Thank you to Aide for teaching us how to use a bow and arrow and become aspirational mini Robin Hoods. My arms are aching after having to draw the bow. A wonderful way to spend an evening at Golden Grove. Adding to my list of essential things a modern girl must learn to do! #archery #summerhobby #teambuilding #bowandarrow #compositbow
Come along and enjoy seeing the latest photographic work by Graham Cooper from Wednesday - Sunday 10am-4pm at The Orangery, Saling Grove. This exhibition is running in parallel to the existing ‘Life and times of Humphrey Repton.’ We also have Sunday teas from 2pm #repton200 #photographicexhibition #essexphotography #photography
Plans are afoot to build our new garden. With a lot of sweat and cups of tea! we have cleared and levelled the old dirt area, created another log wall, found an old cartwheel and soon will be creating the base area for the plants. Watch this space! #logwall #cartwheel #beegarden #gardentransformation
Hotter than France day at the Golden Grove Caravan site. The flowers are out. Purple and green colours ... must be Wimbledon soon. #purpleflowers #hotday
Bees maybe wild animals but they are essential for our survival. That is why it is important to look after them, however small the act maybe. Inspired by Sir David Attenborough’s post, we are planning to create a small ‘bee garden’ at Golden Grove that hopefully will create an oasis for insects and bees alike.
Popped by to a friend’s greenhouse and was shown a beautiful cactus flower. Apparently a cactus flowers for only 20 hours so super lucky to have caught it in bloom. #cactus #bloom #greenhouse #gardening
Spotted by the log wall at Golden Grove. How many baby polts can you spot? Running around looking for mother pheasant.
Cute picture of two young before they went out to the grass earlier this month.
Our sheep were sheared last week and finally rid of their winter fleeces. Jacob sheep have 4 horns and have very thick fleeces so are particularly difficult to shear. It is a dance where you continually rotate the sheep around shearing each section of the fleece. This is physical exhausting work, so no need to go to the gym. #sheepshearing #shepherds_are_awesome #fleece #jacobsheep
