Signs of spring
The days are noticeably getting longer. On 21st December, the shortest day, I did the lock up of the animals at about 3.45pm. Now I am doing it about 6pm. And at the end of last week, I spotted greenery starting to burst from buds. The picture above is of rose leaves. I am hoping the hawthorn will be earlier than usual this year. We have lots of it to cut back but we can only start once it is in leaf so that it can be fed to the goats.
