Signs of spring

We have some unmistakable signs of spring:

longer days,

birds pairing off,

geese on the move – flying overhead in their V formations,

grass, weeds and clover growing in the pastures,

sap rising in the hedges and some are almost budding.

 

What a contrast to last year, and far too early as it is only mid-Feb and winter could easily return. Here’s hoping for a long mild spring,  which could lead to a good strong crop of young calves and lambs and even potentially a good harvest.
