I have almost got my energy level back by today but have had another quiet day, mainly because the weather has been so very cold and wet. The gardens on the estate - all coming into flower nicely - look very vulnerable today and have certainly stopped growing to wait for a warm sun (promised by the end of the week I believe). I suppose we can say it is typical April weather but it would be nice to have typical Spring weather instead.
The fields around here are now full of young lambs - many of them Swaledale lambs (the local breed) - but once they get plenty of mother's milk inside them they seem able to withstand a wintry spell like this. The top of East Witton Fell and the top of Penn Hill, both of which are visible from my window, are both covered in snow as I write this.
Tomorrow my busy life resumes - I am just about ready for it.
