On Sunday we went on a return visit to Manor Farm.
There were lots of new arrivals in the farmyard such as the cutest twin baby calves born 5 days earlier
and in one of the barns there were lambs which were also just a few days old.
It was feeding time not longer after we got there, a fact this pig was well aware of! She had heard the farmer's voice and had lifted herself up and was snuffling the air sniffing out the bucket of food he was bringing over for her.
Brown paper bags full of chicken food can be purchased and we always buy a bag to feed the multitude of hens, cockerels and ducks who wander around the farm.
We have never spotted this shepherds hut on any of our previous visits, the steps of which made for an ideal photo posing opportunity.
Just look at the dinky little stove set inside it.
The others weren't really bothered about going back to look inside the farmhouse again, but this is just about my most favourite part I had to nip in.
How cosy a scene is this?
A real fire blazing away and as well as the armchair itself being swathed in crochet blankets this clever lady has a shawl of granny squares draped around her shoulders as she works on the most beautiful blanket. Perfection.
And as if that wasn't wonderful enough there were even more beautiful items to feast my eyes on as I wandered around the room featured in the Wartime Farm TV series.
No more words from me ,except to say if you are ever in the area a visit is a must especially if you coincide it with one of the special events they run during the year. Now just enjoy the vintage loveliness in the rest of the photos.
