Signs of spring: part 1

Spring is nearly upon us!

The first Crocus bloomed on Wednesday, and buds are welling on daffodils, trees and bushes. The bees are stirring in their boxes and the hazelnut tree is draped in golden flowers. Over the last week our pasture has changed from grey to verdant green. The peacocks are calling and fanning their tales and flocks of birds are flying in from the south, filling the morning air with song.
