My dad Alan who passed peacefully to broader horizons in the early hours of this morning  .An avid bell ringer all his life.We are blessed to have the last bell he rung and we hope it will be hanging in our chapel tower sometime in the next few months.

Any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. John Donne

“We have the choice of two identities: the external mask which seems to be real...and the hidden, inner person who seems to us to be nothing, but who can give himself eternally to the truth in whom he subsists. (295)” 
― Thomas MertonNew Seeds of Contemplation

From now on the blog will be from Norway !  Good Luck to Dave , Pat and Roma who are looking after the place while we are away

What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.

We lost one of our chickens yesterday , but discovered we have a dove chick! mum does not like us taking photos though

“I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

William Wordsworth 

The bulbs are out in abundance , just tidying up around the site at the moment getting ready for Easter

Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she laid an asteroid.


Not sure if the hen cackled much for this one on the right  , it's about the size of a large marble !  , we are grateful she tried ..

 In Greek lore, the amaryllis flower is named for a shepherdess whose love for a gardener was unrequited.

I loved a triple spiral
My maiden mother crone
I folded my devotion to an origami rose

Lyrics to song by Bright eyes 

 

Paul Clarke , the local woodcarver has created this for us on one of our standing stones , we are very happy with it

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.


This amaryllis has true beauty , we are blessed to have seen it develop from just a bulb

A blessing is a circle of light drawn around a person to protect, heal and strengthen.


This is our healing Labyrinth , which the alpacas tidy up for us each day

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.


The bulbs are exploding here and with the prospect of a warmer spell over the next week or so , we are hopeful everything will soon burst into life
