Well, it has well and truly sprung today - wall-to-wall sunshine, albeit hazy and little or no wind. In the sun it is a very warm day; in the shade it is still quite cold. The weather has brought out the lawn mower brigade in force - they are everywhere like flies and making the rest of us who haven't even oiled ours after winter, feel guilty.
It was just the day for the lime to be spread on the fields and shortly before lunch time the lorries and the lime spreader arrived. From the top road (where I ventured on a trip to Richmond with my daughter in law to sample flapjack and coffee in a lovely bistro) we could see the white 'cloud' strips across our fields.
Tess is limping and the vet thinks she has pulled a muscle rabbit chasing, so for a few days she has to walk on the leash to give the muscle time to heal. She does not care for it.
Elizabeth tells me that three inches of snow are forecast for New York for tomorrow - seems winter is still trying to win the battle. We do not want you here winter - begone!
