It's Spring

I've been busy of late and there are a couple of blog posts waiting in the wings - the photos are taken and the words are in my head but I just haven't had time to write them.
In the meantime, I just had to share a couple of pictures of the lambs which arrived in our neighbour's field today.Aren't they just the sweetest things you ever saw?
We all have signs which tell us when Spring is here. The lengthening of the day, the crocus and daffodil bulbs pushing out of the earth and opening into bright colourful blooms, the blossoms on the prune and cherry trees. 
I know that Spring has really arrived when the lambs appear. I  love watching how the ewes keep a careful guard over their babies, how the lambs quickly become confident enough to wander away from their mums' sides to graze and play. And how they play! I could watch for hours as they run and chase and jump. I fill memory cards with images of cute lambs, clutter up my hard drive with wonderful woolliness.


  1. Lovely photos, I haven't seen any lambs yet. Often, lambing is a bit later in these parts as it can be cold and harsh around here... lambing time is April and May for many farms around me but I always look forward to it!

  2. Spring is going crazy down here. Much to the dismay of the village of Thriplow which has a Daffodil Day on April 5 by which time the daffodils will be long gone. Last year everything was really late.

  3. I just love cute little lambs! I am hoping for a few dry days to go for a walk and see some lambs myself. Have a lovely week.

  4. I missed this post! Yes the lambs are easy on the eyes and definitely use up a lot of frames on the digital! Lovely
