I don’t always enjoy the commute to London from Warwickshire although I have to say I never question whether or not it is worth it. Right now, it couldn’t be more wonderful as the sun is shining, the flowers are blooming and we have lambs on the yard!!!!!!
I’ve never fed a lamb before and now they are everywhere!!! Usually a mummy sheep can only carry two babies, so when they have three, one needs feeding manually and it’s often a lot smaller than all the others so needs extra TLC. Our stables are currently like a maternity ward for our friendly clouds with legs… and the sound of babies bleeting is delightful! There have been some sad losses in the mix but generally the majority are going strong and little Henry that you see me feeding was so touch and go at first but is now almost ready to go out into the fields!
As for my garden, the tulips are waking up and looking lovely. It’s full of surprises for us as we only bought in August so have no idea what is going to pop up! Saying that, Brian and I were watching Monty Don the other night and he had the most amazing chequered flowers in his garden which I thought were the most beautiful flowers ever! Then my step sons arrived last weekend with a gorgeous new welly plant pot for me and the said flowers planted inside… I’m very lucky me!
Fingers crossed spring is here to stay! Here’s beautiful Beth in her new lightweight rug …which was covered in mud within minutes of her going out to her field!!
Take care and I hope you enjoy some sunshine
