Before I move on completely, here are a couple more wedding pictures:
Nice hat!!

Victoria made the hearts the bridesmaids are carrying at the willow weaving workshop Alan Hulford took for us

Over the years we have taken pictures of Victoria and George by the stone - I'll have to dig them out.
As I said in the last post, following the wedding Jonathan and I spent a wonderful few days in a converted cow shed in Wales (a beautiful converted cow shed).  There was a bird table outside the kitchen and we loved the fact that woodpeckers fed from it all day.  I have always envied Sandra C when she talks about the woodpeckers she has in her garden - I had only ever seen one up here - at dawn one morning years ago.
The day after we came back, Jonathan and I were talking in the office, looked out the window and saw this:
We couldn't believe it!!  He's a regular visitor now.

On Sunday it was shearing time.  I love it when the shearers come.  We brought the sheep down the evening before, and then waited for Ben and Tom to come with the Kiwi shearers.  They sheared 125 sheep in about 2 hours.  The caravanners came over to watch and said they'd learnt more about sheep from Ben in half an hour than they'd know all their lives!

Once the sheep are sheered, they skip away like lambs again!


  1. Great to read your up date Joanne and lovely to see some more pics of the wedding.
    No peace for the wicked though with the shearing to be done, glad at least the weather has stayed fair! Carole W
