Winter or Spring?

I last posted in February when we had had some glorious weather and we were all feeling very Spring-like in Cantlop. However, since then we have had snow and hailstones but it’s rather nice to look through the window at the weather rumbling across the fields whilst you have the warmth of The Shippen at your feet.

The daffodils have been glorious this year as have the fritillaries and soon the lane to Cantlop will be full of cow parsley.

Yesterday we heard and saw the first Lapwing in the fields around The Shippen and on the way to Shrewsbury we saw a flock of House Martins!
