New addition to the breakfast menu!
We seem to have inherited a wonderful blackcurrant bush! We thought it was a flowering currant until it produced loads of lovely fruit, which is now being made into jam or gently cooked with sugar to make a fantastic sauce for ice cream! At least something seems to like all this rain! 3lbs of fruit so far and plenty more on the bush. So, blackcurrant jam is now available with your toast for breakfast!

Finally the sun is out, the grass is growing and the birds are singing!
However long it lasts, we’re going to enjoy it. Everything sparkles when the sun shines – come and visit and see for yourself!
These pics are of my 3 enjoying their summer pasture.

Just one example of our garden fauna. Who needs to watch it on the telly when you can look out of the window! Neil captured this sweet girl early this morning from the sunroom, tucking into our nettles!

Now that spring is here (allegedly!) we have been out and about with visiting family, to nearby Castle Kennedy Gardens which are stunning and an absolute must to visit if you are in this area. Acres of informal gardens to explore and lose yourself in, with rhododendrons and azaleas in flower at the moment and a sweet resident oyster catcher nesting near the lovely walled garden.
We had a new visitor of our own this week too – a cuckoo, seen here on the garden fence just a few feet from the house!

From 23rd May 2015 we will be ready to welcome guests to our home.
We are opening as a B&B with 2 newly decorated double rooms, both with ensuite shower rooms.
We have a special offer until the end of June of just £55 per room per night.
With summer just around the corner why not visit this lovely corner of south west Scotland soon and see it at its very best?
