We were surprised one morning this week to have a heard of cattle join us for breakfast! They had obviously heard that we had just won another award!
The decided to have a close inspection of the rooms, giving some of the guests a bit of a shock when they opened their blinds and they also had a good taste of our lovely shrubs and flowers! They inspected all around by standing on the top of the Pembrokeshire bank, looking like the bulls you see on the Spanish mountains(if you’ve been to Spain, you’ll know what I mean!).
Not content with one part of the garden, they decided to have a good rummage around everywhere! Luckily, I was able to escape, leaving Rhiannon to hold the fort, and dash down to the farmer to alert him! The farmer was a star, ushering all the herd out single handed, with me just stopping the cattle going up onto the main road, doing my mobile scarecrow impersonation!
So, the poor garden looked a right mess, and the gardener was here yesterday digging up the small conifers that were trampled and snapped in two. So, we have a few gaps in the border now!
The upside though, is that we had a few blooms to make a nice flower display for the lounge. I don’t like cutting flowers to bring them inside normally, but as the cattle had done the job for me, it would’ve been a waste not to use them as they looked so lovely!
