What a difference a week makes! Although still on the chilly side the sun is out and everywhere is drying up slowly but steadily and there are definite signs of Spring. The daffodils are beginning to push through the soil and poke through all the dead leaves left over from the autumn, snowdrops are not far behind and already in glorious flower are the hellebores.
Our lovely new neighbours have chickens and already the chickens have produced some huge tasty eggs- I can’t stop eating scrambled egg when the eggs are so fresh and bright yellow…very Springlike!
Not so lovely is our roof! We thought we had finished with the repairs and all the scaffolding was taken down and then it rained and rained and the rain came in again- in a different place- so the wonderful builders are back and doing more hard work.
Driving into Llandovery this morning through the fog – I do a very tiny period of teaching in Llandovery College- I could see some lambs on the hillside…so Spring is here!
