Hippety-Hop!


I nearly posted about this last week. But stopped myself, when it appeared my enthusiasm was premature. But today, as sunshine floods through the windows of Thistletonthwaite Castle, my suspicion is confirmed: 

SPRING IS HERE!

We can now stop worrying about newborn animals freezing in the fields.


A friend saw some tiny lambs wearing little coats, a sight I’d love to see.

It’s been such a long winter, and you struggle on, imagining bundling-up in a coat until June. Then, suddenly there is sun -- WARM sun. Too warm for a coat and scarf -- yippee!

Down here in the south, it is pouring with rain, and some of the local roads are badly flooded.

Sorry you’re experiencing bad weather!

(I should have KNOWN this post would tempt fate. ;))

Awwww...that lamb in a coat is too too cute. It has been really cold and rainy down in the west country today but surely when May begins tomorrow, the sun will come out - won't it??

Lucy: I hope so. It’s otherwise too terrible to think this post has jinxed the rest of the country! ;)

It's sunny roasting hot now. Rainy. Sunny. Rainy. Sunny ...

Eamon: I’m so pleased to hear it! And isn’t that typical?! Flip-flop, flip-flop …
