An extract from my Seasons Journal: The most exciting thing on our walks this month was spotting a Mallard duck shuffling amongst the shrubs on the main village road and we plan to keep an eye on Jemima Puddle-duck and see what becomes of her nest. Talking of eggs we had excitement from our own hens that started to lay eggs on 9 March. It is like being given treasure each day and I have never before marvelled and appreciated eggs so much. Isabel couldn’t believe they came from hens; and I thought I was raising a country child! Wondering what this project is all about? Have a look at this entry.
