The lorry is booked

It is August (already) and it is time to start thinking about selling the lambs.  Farmer has booked the lorry and booked our pens at the market.

With shearing behind us, Farmer has turned his attentions to the bracken and been out whenever the weather allows him, to weed wipe or mow.  So far he hasn't used the knapsack and lance but he still has plans to do behind the Haunn cottages.  For this you need a still dry day and it has either been too breezy or wet.  The bracken has started turning in some places already so it may be too late and some bits will have to wait until next year.

The tups are in the field in front of the farm house at the moment.  I don't think I have ever seen Brownie (below) asleep! 

The woodland between the Ensay Burn and the farm is peppered with these beautiful Angelica.  

Here is an indication of recent weather as seen by the view straight out from the farmhouse office to Calgary and Caliach headlands.  I am biased but I do think it is lovely in all weathers.
