The weather is gorgeous here -bright blue sky, golden sunshine, trees in yellow green and red glory. The temperature is mild (we often wear short-sleeved topsin the afternoon), and it's a pleasure to be outside. We're planting berry bushes and spring bulbs.
Bees and butterflies enjoy the sunny days, too.
So do our pets: the kittens are tumbling on the ground, and the dogs race each other at high speed through the orchard.
The vegetable beds still gift us their bounty: potatoes, peppers, aubergines, spinach, and the last of the tomatoes.
Life is good.
