Springtime at Birtley
Springtime at Birtley with birdsong at dawn,
and House martins return to where they were born,
Rainbows of colours appear overnight,
as carpets of bulbs create a beautiful sight.
The sun shines bright in a cloudless sky,
on a beautiful April day,
As ewes watch over their frisky lambs,
as they gamble and frolic away.
Morning dew and a shimmering lake,
home to the golden carp,
Ducks nest, and geese gaggle,
waking us all up sharp.
Hay fever season upon us,
pink and white blossom wafts in the breeze,
With the scent of freshly mown grass,
the pollen makes us sneeze.
Bright green weeping willow, and the old Birtley oak,
A pond full of toads and frogs,
you may even hear them croak!
The waterfall creates calm and peace, as steadily it flows,
Liberty cow stands on the lawn, watching who comes and goes.
With Halloween celebrations growing each year in the UK, our Birtley House activities team decided to really embrace it this year and make the most of our own home grown pumpkins.
Having made the decision that additional care is required and that a nursing home is the right solution, finding the right one can be a daunting process. To help ease this, Birtley House nursing home guildford have devised a check list of the initial, most important considerations for any individual or family.
