The Open Home 1204

“Why be indoors when you can rightly be without.” – Charlotte Mason

Spring never disappoints us. We appreciate every new bloom that comes through, every new bird that visits and every new addition down on the farm.

This spring we’ve learnt about the circle of life as we said goodbye to one pet goat and welcomed in another. We joined in Guernsey’s first BioBlitz and left with a new appreciation for moths and voles. We’ve seen improved skill through our nature journaling, started to dabble in some nature photography and even began work on our very own wildlife garden.

Here are some of the snapshots:
