How do you like the set up of the newsletter? It's fun isn't it? We couldn't help but play with the new software a bit. :-)
May has been busy in the garden and on the river. The path and the picnic area near the teahut were mown. Now you can walk the whole 3 km beat without much trouble. And it's worth it - the bluebells are full and fill the woods with fragrance and the rhododendron are now bursting out.
This weekend is a bank holiday weekend so please come and enjoy the bluebells carpeting the woods. Bring a picnic for lunch near the river or just come for a stroll through the woods and along the Slaney. We'll set-off at 3pm and be back by 4:30. Please let us know if you can join us by return email or 086 817 9238.
This weekend Pam is also running a yoga workshop focussed on helping people establish a home practice. Establishing a home practice helps you get the most out of yoga, setting you up for a lifetime of physical and mental well being. This workshop helps you understand how to sequence a practice, overcome obstacles, and formulate very short practices so that you stay motivated.

The garden is coming under control but the race is on as everything is growing so fast now. And we'll be starting to cut hay in a few weeks so if you want the best hay around, put in your order now! There's a short article about our foray in to hay making here, and soon we'll enhance it with some more links and technical info on hay making.
Thanks to those of you who created accounts on the new website. Everyone is welcome to do so and it will help us stay in touch.
Wishing you all sun and fun this summer.
