Spring is here at long last! I don't know how we got through winter, but we did and now we have months of longer days and sunshine ahead of us, full of promise and good times to come. Flowers are beginning to open, birds have a purpose in their song and the air is filled with the bleating of tiny lambs. Life is indeed good.
Look at that little face! Anyone would have to have a heart of stone not to find these little animals absolutely gorgeous. The island is awash with lambs now and will be for some time to come. I love watching them play in the sunshine and then collapse next to their mothers when they get tired. As I write, I can see lambs asleep in the sun, enjoying the first rays of warmth they have experienced; their mums resting while they can. Soon they will be awake and leaping about again. It is funny how, just like children, they seem to develop in the same way and play the same games, year after year. I love watching them run together in a line, then turn round and run back along the same path!
Have a lovely day and thank you for reading. xxx
