A Spring in my Step

Even though we’re still in lockdown the sight of banks of daffodils can’t fail to cheer me up.

But there’s more!

It’s Spring and  time to let the new lambs into the fields,

So of course I was off with my camera like a shot.

Some tiny ones with their proud mothers.

I’ve had a word with the farmer about splodging them with blue as it spoils my photos but he said I just had to try to get them from their good side.

I think this one might be one of the first born as he/she is a bit chunky.

I wonder how long it will take me before I get used to living in a house in the midst of fields of new born lambs and stop acting like a tourist.  Possibly forever.

I can’t wait until the calves arrive!

What’s putting a spring in your step at the moment?

    I’d be right there with you if I could!

      It’s certainly making the transition from France back to England painless.

    awww lovely pictures of Spring!

      Spring does a lovely job of cheering up doesn’t it and everybody could certainly do with it at the moment.

    They’re so lovely! With me it’s the foals. And the daffs, of course!

    • #6 by tialys on March 3, 2021 - 09:47

      Oh yes, I forgot. This is a big area for racehorse stables so I wonder whether there’ll be foals to ooh and aah over too. I’ll let you know.

    Gosh what a difference a few miles make- very few daffs here, and I’ve not seen a lamb- but that might be lockdown…

    • #8 by tialys on March 3, 2021 - 09:46

      What? Lambs are in lockdown too? 😉
      The fields are directly in front of our house and, the field behind has just been ‘muck spread’ (pooh!) and opened up to the dairy cows again so we’re surrounded by cuteness.

    How could you ever get used to such adorableness? March has definitely come in like a lion in Maine—subzero weather, high wind, and two times where we lost our power. Your photos were very much appreciated.

      I’m glad you liked them – a glimpse of your own, hopefully, not too distant Spring.

    Perhaps it’ a good think I’m not there as I’d be tempted to ‘acquire’ daffs for every room in my house. 🙈 But if I were really there I’d find them on offer easily enough. 😘

      £1 a bunch at the tills in M & S.

      • #13 by CurlsnSkirls on March 3, 2021 - 11:51

        On my way! Can’t find them anywhere over here! ✈️

    New lambs and calves are just the best!

    • #15 by tialys on March 3, 2021 - 09:40

      Kids (the baby goat variety) are gorgeous too but I haven’t spotted any of those yet. Just as well or I’d have cuteness overload.

    What’s putting a ‘spring’ in my step is the fact that it’s starting to get a tad cooler, and I can begin to see a time when my brain doesn’t fry if I go outside without a hat at midday! Sadly, we don’t have lambs this far north, it’s far too hot for the poor things even in the cooler months, and all the calves are further west, away from cane country. So my exposure to cute baby animals and daffodils is very limited 😦 Never mind, it’ll soon be winter, and Mouse and I can go for long walks again without dying of heat exhaustion!

    • #17 by tialys on March 3, 2021 - 09:39

      We all have our crosses to bear 😉
      You’ll just have to let Mouse provide you with all the necessary animal cuteness.
      It’s no joke being too hot to go out. On a less dramatic scale, and in the height of summer, it kept me inside from 9 until 5 or 6 where I lived in France and my sister moved back from Spain as she couldn’t stand being stuck inside for most of the day.

      • #18 by katechiconi on March 3, 2021 - 10:04

        Wearing a hat helps, and I am acclimatised, but you certainly don’t linger outside in the middle of the day! And Mouse does exceptionally well at providing cuteness….

    How joyful x

    • #20 by tialys on March 5, 2021 - 10:12

      I’m glad you liked my lamby pics.
      How’s the school hunt going?

  10. #21 by Carol on March 3, 2021 - 14:05

    So very cute…., we have lots of Daffodils over here as well on our front field. So lovely to look out onto in the morning…..

    • #22 by tialys on March 5, 2021 - 10:12

      How long to go now before you come over?

    Ohmygoodness! You live in an amazing place. I’m so glad you’re playing tourist at home and that we get to share in your experiences.

    • #24 by tialys on March 5, 2021 - 10:15

      I’m getting my tourist experience out of the way now because I suspect, in a couple of months’ time, there will be lots of real ones around and I will be moaning about them blocking the country lanes with their cars, bicycles, children etc. The penalty of living in a picturesque place in England.

      • #25 by Born To Organize on March 29, 2021 - 21:38

        Ah…well, I hope its a penalty you are willing to pay. I loved my time in England and Scotland. It’s so lush and picturesque, especially the Lake District. I really miss travel.

    All so cute. I’m still charmed by them every year.
