Swallows, mud and evictions

5th June, 2012:  The swallows are here!  Indeed they have been here for a few weeks ... and I have had to evict them!  I discovered that they had made nests in the pig arcs which I use to provide some shelter for sheep in my fields.  That's lovely and no doubt the sheep help contribute nice warmth to their homes.

Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival

5th June, 2012: It's almost a month since Douglas and I went to explore the US sheep and wool market and we are just about beginning to digest all the information and contacts ...  We had a great time!  The Festival is in its 39th year and attracts around 70,000 visitors each year.  Attendance was a bit down this year, but it was still hopping!  It can be some years before an applicant for a show booth (stand in English!) gets their turn.
