Spring is ramping up

The weather is getting warmer, the fireplace has not been in use for some weeks and neither the heaters.

We still have the odd rain front moving through though – the last one brought three days of rain and the wind flipped over a few things. But generally the mud on the ground has disappeared, the grass has been growing lots and the animals are happy.

The calves have been weaned off and are happily eating the fresh spring grass and will soon be united with bestie moo, the big cow we have.

The alpacas are enjoying the sunshine, too and presenting sometimes scary pictures. They rarely lay down and when they do, you keep a good eye on them because they look like they died in the paddock.

So nice to be back outside in sunshine and some warm temperatures.
