March is where Spring Begins
Yippee, we are into March and just when you might have thought the worst throws of winter must surely be behind us we have been hit by our first significant snow in 10 years! School has been shut for 3 days in anticipation of snow but on Thursday it finally arrived for us and the kids wasted no time enjoying it into the dark. It is hard to believe spring is knocking on the door, but the spring flowers and our first baby lamb confirms that is really is all about to change. Spring is my favourite season and I can’t wait to see our field full of bouncing baby lambs. I hope you have managed to make the most of the snow days. As ever the link up is below.
