Look, look, look…….. the crocuses have arrived and the daffs are on their way. Happy days.
It has been (and probably still will continue to be) a long hard winter this year so to see these stalwarts is proof we are progressing nearer to the mud drying up and warmer temperatures, possibly even sunshine we can sit out in. I might take off my Norwegian sweater in favour of my fisherman’s canvas top (steady now, let’s not be too hasty!) I’m still wearing a thermal underlayer, though. Maybe June for that radical stage.
Taktur and his son, Dreki, were having a little play as I crept up on them with my camera.
I didn’t actually know a horse’s head could turn at that angle!
And then they spied me and so of course immediately stopped, never to play again.
Dreki did go on to have what we call a “what-the-curtains” moment!
To explain, this is a popular quote in our house….
King of Swamp Castle: One day, lad, all this will be yours.
Prince Herbert: What, the curtains?
And BeAnne’s jacket has proved a God-send.
Why did I not think of this sooner?
It is perfect.
All I have to say now is “but I can see you BeAnne” and she comes running home knowing the game is well and truly up!
And there is even an elephant of enthusiasm too!
Spring approacheth. Bet the snow returns next week then.
