Wonderwool is under 2 weeks away, and in my head that means spring is here. (We'll ignore the year it snowed in through the slats on the sides of the hall). The hedges are only just starting to get green shoots, but the daffodils have been out for a couple of weeks.
Also, just like clockwork, the lambs have appeared in the fields behind the house. The Welsh Mountains lamb outside, pretty much by themselves, the farmers check the fields regularly to keep an eye out for problems, but other than that the sheep are left to get on with it.
So getting good photos is hard... the ones in the field behind the house don't get any supplementary feeding, so don't even associate humans with food.
Getting close requires a degree of sneakiness... and careful spotting of a sleepy lamb.
This one was very sound asleep, it wasn't until I was stood right over it that it jumped up with a start.
It was not impressed at having it's doze interrupted.
Though finding Mum made everything better.
At the moment they all want to stick close to their Mums, and are basically sleeping and eating. Give them another few days and gangs will start forming, and then the run can really start!
