Today I'm another year older and starting to look it too! This week I've found a grey hair in my eyebrow to match the ones that have appeared in my over the winter........but we all have to grow older so I'm not too worried.
The sun is shining, the animals are all happy and the weather will only improve further over the next couple of months. Last summer the temperatures here hit a high of well over 40 degrees C in the sun, far too hot to work in so we do try and take a siesta midday. That also means I get up earlier and get things done before it gets too hot but then enjoy the evenings outside having a barbecue or meal.
Hopefully the spring that has appeared in my vegetable plot will dry out soon and I can get started planting more. Yesterday I did manage to get some more seeds in the ground and another patch completely dug over so the peas can be planted today. It's hard work but very fulfilling when the food on your plate has come from the garden.
Roll on summer and fingers crossed - a bumper crop!
