Spotted two lovely old pear orchards between Shipston and the Chipping Campden junction on the Fosse Way – one on each side of the road and both coming into blossom – but both looking under-managed.


Not the book by Kazuo Ishiguro! Just the feathers left by a poor blackbird when a sparrowhawk made a swift visit to our garden today.

A few bee orchids have appeared, dotted randomly over the lawn. A careful mowing regime will be required this year!
