It's the first day of Spring tomorrow, the first day of September. It's also the due date for one of our Lowlines to have her baby - how's that for perfect timing? Although I think she's going to wait until at least the end of the week before we get to see the first of our 2015 calves.
It's drying out fast and with lambing and calving set to start from now and stretch across the next few months the days have gotten much fuller and busier. It's also heating up fast so the morning routine is being changed. No more slow cold mornings, second cups of tea, putting the sourdough into a warmed oven to prove or leaving the chicken eggs out of the fridge. Spring is short in our part of the world, but I am going to relish the gentle warmth while it lasts.
We delivered the cows their hay as the sun came up this morning, and I took my camera along for the trip.
May your week be filled with warmth and sunshine.
Enjoy the new season,
