Our little apricot tree is in blossom . . . Spring is in the air . . . and hens have been having a leisurely time of it this month. 55 eggs for March, which is a far cry from what we were collecting this time last year. But hens are one year older, so we can’t expect them to be such prolific layers now. Miranda laid 14 eggs – she’s really having a rest this month. Miss Marple laid 18 . . . and Miss Moneypenny put everyone to shame with 23 eggs.
