Manure Farm

Yesterday we visited 'Manure' Farm , actually Manor Farm but Ruby mispronounced it and I think Manure farm is more apt and forever shall it be so....It was a beautiful spring day and I took lots of pics......... I'll share some with you .......Manure Farm is run like an olden day farm ....There is a farm house which is really charming and kitted out with original kitchenalia and baskets . It's set in the Victorian era. Next door is an old schoolroom full of the sorts of desk I had when I was at school( yikes am I an olden day school kid ??!!) blackboard complete with handwriting practice (How times have changed)and nature 'show and tell' table.I love Nature tables did you have one at school???Outside there are old fashioned games, metal hoops and hopscotch and skipping ropes ......... It's the time we are pleased that we are vegetarian especially when we saw the three little piggies.....We walked past the old forge and waggonner's workshop( should that be Cartwrights?) past the duck pond and into the old churchyard. The church is a really calm place to sit awhile. I love old church graveyards with lichen covered gravestones. Maybe there will be some of these colours in my next projects. The primroses were so pretty in the sunshine. All was well with the world.
Scroll right to end of post to play video of Jim skipping and Ruby singing a skipping song.....xx

To see Jim (beardless) skipping then press play...... filming and singing by Ruby.
