It is true. I have seen it with my own eyes and gossip hot from the market place agrees that deinitely cranes have been sighted in several location. That means that despite external conditions spring is on the way. See below for an illustration of the arrival of spring;
Yes here I am looking glamorous as usual in St.Méard before the rain started.
The sheep are now all inside in the warm and dry gosh they eat alot of hay. I am in training for the next olympics as we have to man/woman handle the big round bales into the shed and they eat about 6 a week.
Here are some pics of our new mummies and babies in their warm dry shed. They have just been fed which is why they are all looking at the floor. It is the only way Gavin can get them to stand still when he arrives at the shed. Blue numbers are for one mummy one baby, red numbers are for twins. the paint makes it easy to ensure each baby is with the right mum. In case you were wondering.
Enjoy the weather tomorrow more lovely wind and rain on the way.
See you soon
