Tess, the black cat and I have just been for a walk down the pasture. The sun is quite warm on our backs, the rabbits are frisking about in the fields and have dug a large hole under the barn. The black cat is seriously interested - he is adept at catching (and scoffing) tiny rabbits fresh from the nest (sorry), The farmer is busy spreading effluent on the fields (sorry again) and when he has done that he will concentrate on collecting all the heaps of nature's prunings which lie about waiting to go on a bonfire. Dare I say that there is a modicum of spring in the air today. (that is probably reason enough for a snowy downfall overnight.) Have a good weekend.
