Fascinating to walk around the garden this morning and see in the snow what creatures had been visiting during the night and early morning to forage for the food I have left out for them in their various feeding stations – I found evidence of deer, rabbits, foxes, pheasants, mice and lots of cat and duck prints! Every cloud has a silver lining and the snow has enabled me to see how blessed we are with so many creatures living alongside us. When you come to stay here at Olde Farm you will be able to see these wonderful creatures sharing our gardens for yourself, though some nights you have to be patient as they can be very shy. In these Winter months if you wrap up warm and sit in the gazebo as the light fades you can see the wildlife emerge from their day time hides and start to feed, in the warmer months you will also see the hedgehogs and their families wandering across the lawns as dusk falls. Truly magical!
