First Days of Spring

The first day of spring was followed by a beautiful sunny Sunday.  After I'd planted some seeds (Sweet Peas, Foxy Foxgloves, and Cosmos), I went in to do some ironing but looked out of the kitchen window and decided to have a cup of tea outside instead.

It all had a real feel of re-awakening.  The geese were happy,

the rams were happy,

the chickens were happy.

In fact, the big grey one is starting to annoy me a bit.  He keeps eating eggs.  You are supposed to fill an empty shell with mustard so I duly filled one with mustard and curry powder and put it in the chicken house......she ate the whole thing....so that didn't work.

Everything is starting to bud.  The willows at the bottom have a green haze over them where the leaves are starting to come (they are always first) and the dogwood that Belinda gave me which is outside the workshop is really coming on

Then, just before it was time to come in, Reuben started making friends with the ram
Then last night we went to the first Ale of the year, hosted by a side called Cornucopia, and danced the night a way....

Five different styles!
