Rescue Weevil

A few days back, my daughter found a weevil in the bathroom. Poor thing was quite confused. I think it may have got blown off course while flying past. We took him outside to warm up in the sunshine and he very much enjoyed running around on her hand before we put him onto a…… Continue reading Rescue Weevil

Gentle Giants

Yesterday my daughter and I went to Dyfed Shire Horse Farm again and had a lovely time. The Shire horses are so big but so gentle and sweet natured. Even with something so big it can be worth looking closer, and I enjoyed getting some photos of their beautiful eyes as well as stepping back…… Continue reading Gentle Giants

What I…… Continue reading Just like me, they long to bee … close to you
