I think that we should send out newsletters more often….last time we had rain, as I write this it is raining – with very dry and hot conditions in between and absolutely no sign of replenishing showers! Maybe not much fun for holiday makers but an excellent excuse to don wellie boots and splosh in mud puddles.  The peonies have been in full bloom this week and enjoyed by all who passed them on the path. Talking of flowers, remember our Walking with Wildflowers weekend at the end of this month.  Slide in a calming weekend away before the bustle of yearend frenzy. Give the girls in the office a call now 058-2230274.
Someone who does enjoy the mud is the pigs.  Scooting around in the paddock, trying to look innocent when they have mud boots on all fours, rewriting the story books….Pig in Boots!   One also wonders about the piglet, trying to get a drink from mom in the mud puddle….does it taste like chocolate milk? Or why with our new batch of 14 piggies, we consider all the pink ones to be girls….?! We are also pleased to say we have a new calf (not a pink one..) and it’s a girl called…Shakes!
For those of you not getting updates on Facebook, we have to admit that we are never going to get Macadamia nuts from our tree, even though it is flourishing… that is because it’s actually a Pecan tree!  Ah well… pecans are good.  It now has a protective wire around it as Charlotte (our tortoise) decided that its green leaves were good for a snack. Charlotte was obviously a little miffed – she escaped and was found heading down the drive for the main gate.
We are looking forward to hosting our 2nd Fun Bowls week at the end of this month and hope that we have a little more rain so that the running is good and smooth.  A calming thought for all small people, is that Father Christmas knows exactly where our chimney is, having been stuck going back up on a previous year, after eating all the good Wyndford cookies. We have let him know which children will be staying with us over this special time so no worries. (Big children could also try their luck…)
We still have some accommodation available early December and remember until the 12th the 20% discount applies for a four night or longer stay.
Thanks to all those who enter our monthly draw. November’s winner is Mike Sheridan
Looking forward to being able to welcome you to the Eastern Free States’ beauty in the Summertime!
Warm regards from us all, your Wyndford Team.
