Spring has sprung


By neellan


The clocks went forward so spring is definitely here so I went round the garden with my camera to see what I could find the first thing I noticed was the work of the greater spotted woodpeckers on my line post I hope they found something tasty!

The Daphne is looking colourful and such a lovely scent in the rockery garden

The Anemone blanda in the spinney pushing through the leaves

The primroses on the bank soon to be followed by cowslips

At the back door a bowl of Primulas I planted earlier!

In the field across the drive I hear the new arrivals have made the great outdoors! “baa baa” the little black lamb was camera shy and ran off to find her Mum

This little lamb found her Mum I see. All in all I think you can say Spring has finally Sprung

Wow neellan that Woodpecker must have indigestion now!
Lovely photos. Funny, I just put some photos in my computer ready to post and titled one of them "Spring has sprung". Never mind, eh? Cos it has.

I turned to a program the other night called how we castrate our lambs, I could nt believe it was allowed to be put on the tv, it was awful, cutting it with a knife then biteing with their teeth and then just chopping their tales off with a knife, no anacetic at all. I have lived on a farm and never have I seen such a thing.

Who spoke too soon then? we now have snow 2/3" and all signs of spring have been hidden in the white blanket, poor wee lambs out in the cold
