The Flowering Currant over by the village pond is one of the first places to look for unfurling leaves and flower buds, and it won’t be long until there are actual flowers. Looking forward to some nice cheery pink flowers :) Here’s one from last year :)

Another thing (or things) I saw at the weekend was lambs. Lots of lovely cute little lambs. Most were at the far side of fields staying by their mums but these two (twins) came lolloping over towards me in a friendly way. Their mum stood by keeping an eye…

From behind the furry covering, the fresh yellow stamens are now appearing on the Willow catkins. They’re clean and new and fresh. Some are all the way out now, and others just peeking. They looked lovely in the sunshine yesterday morning :)  In response…
