Spring at last
This, to me, is the true sign that Spring has sprung. Little lambs. And about time too, it'll be April in 4 1/2 hrs (UK time). Mr P took the pic for me when he was out walking. These are the sheep that I walked Marley past every day in hopes of seeing lambs. Hopefully I'll be well enough to see them next week instead. Cute cuties.
I always used to wonder why lambs are so skippy and jumpy but sheep just mump around like they can't be bothered. Then I experienced the immense physical and psychological weight of having to walk around in a thick wooly jumper in the rain. No wonder wonder they oomph goes out of them... I mean, look at those legs, they are wearing about 20 thick jumpers on those tiny pin legs! It's a small miracle that they walk at all.
