Memorandum Monday: A New Home

Good morning!

What a lovely weekend it has been for wandering amongst the buttercups.

Sending a wave from a very sunny farm to Sian and all the other Monday folks! So what's new this week? Well the garden is beginning to flourish although I still have a lot of weeding and planting to do but this photo gives a taste of what is hopefully to come.

Back to the title though and don't worry we are not on the move but two small visitors have been vey busy over the last week home making.

A pair of swallows have made this nest on the tiniest of ledges in the stables at the back of our house. They are still busy constructing and I managed to catch them at work by hiding in the corner. Look carefully to see the collection of mud on it's beak.

Hopefully they are far enough up to be safe from this little monkey.

I promise to keep you posted on their progress. Have a great week!


  1. Lovely sunny pics! The top one is great. Nice to see the swallows back and yes please to future updates. I still remember the ballet dancing babbies from last year!

  2. lovely capture of the swallows and yes that looks like a cat out nunting - have a great week

  3. Let's assume the best from such a handsome kitty (col) ... here is hoping that the Swallows can raise a full brood. I so miss the Swallows from our barns. The hens are looking quite busy beyond egg laying ...

  4. Your swallows have been more considerate than my house martins, who have build their nest on my bedroom window, actually on the frame so I can't open one side of the window or their nest will fall off!

  5. Such great pictures! I sound like a broken record, but they really are a breath of fresh country air.

    Wishing you a good week

  6. How lovely to have the swallows nesting right where you can follow their progress. I enjoyed seeing your buttercups, after ours went with the grass cutting at the weekend!
