Last night we had a barbecue and enjoyed our first sweetcorn picked straight from the veg patch. The taste is fantastic compared to a cob bought in the supermarket... maybe 15 minutes from picking to eating - delicious!

The day old chicks we got a couple of weeks ago are no longer little balls of fluff! As you can see, they are already starting to grow feathers and flapping their wings in an effort to be all grown up :) At this rate it won't be too long before they will be joining the other hens down in the chicken run.

Apricot season has arrived! One of my favourite fruits - you can't beat going past the tree and spying which apricot looks the ripest and picking it to check... delicious! Because we don't spray the trees, you have to check for bugs before eating. Of course we all know there is only one thing worst than finding a maggot in an apricot... and that is finding half a maggot in an apricot!! :)

At the moment we have some scientists from Finland staying that have government approval to do a moth survey. They have set up lots of collecting stations with lights that attract the moths during the night. It seems the survey has found out that 8 out of 10 moths prefer to stay at Cyprus Country Holidays! (I made that last bit up!) :)

Spring is a fantastic time of year to come over for a holiday in Cyprus; it is one of my favourite times of the year. The sun is shining with a real warmth but without the excessive heat of Summer, but even better the fields are a lush green with a carpet of wild flowers. I went down in our field to take some photos...

Today was the annual #LetsDoItCyprus clean up event. This year a lot more people turned out to help and nearly double the amount of rubbish was collected compared to last year. #Vavla

If you are looking for a taste of real Cyprus life then you should head over to Vavla on the 8th July. We have just heard that the annual village 'do' is being held on that day. There is a buffet with traditional Cypriot food followed by dancing until the small hours. No 'Come on Eileen' or 'YMCA' blasting from the disco, strictly Cypriot music with traditional dancing!

Spring has sprung!!! A few really warm, sunny days has kick-started the blossom. I was in the field and noticed the almond tree blossom (which is always the first to make an appearance) was just starting to burst through. It wont take long before all the trees are a mound of white flower with the sound of bees frantically going from flower to flower to collect the nectar. I love this time of year - blue skies, a warm sun on your back and lush green fields.
