We have some unmistakable signs of spring:
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.
