It's May but still "April showers", and chilly temperatures and windy days.... Above are the ewes and their lambs in the field opposite the house. A grey, chilly day. I want to rush out and wrap the little lambs in wooly jumpers! Their mums have lovely thick oily fleeces to keep them dry, but the young lambs have only a thin covering of wool at this early stage. I love watching them all "playing" together, racing around the field, playing "I'm King of the Castle", and racing off again.
In the garden the tulips are out - these are NOT dwarf tulips but they have learned to grow low or they just don't survive!
And the cultivated variety of primrose are starting to flower too....
While the wild variety are very late this year....but beautiful and worth waiting for. These cover the stone near the pier.
A hen enjoys rootling around underneath the willow trees
And the clouds continue to scud across the sky.....
While Button prefers to snooze in the warm.... I love the way cats are so tidy when they sit - look at her tail neatly curled up! (And no she doesn't have a problem with her ear - it's just the angle of the photo!)
But there ARE days when the sun shines and the sky is blue :-)
