I can never understand why February is considered to be the beginning of Spring, it’s still cold and dark and feels nothing like Spring. This past week however felt exactly like the beginning if Spring, all of a sudden being woken at 6 wasn’t so bad because it was starting to get bright. Coming home from work in daylight makes a hugely welcome change and thankfully the days were milder, we got to go outside without thermal layers and after a winter of cabin fever the children were delighted to rediscover all there is to do outside.
It’s been a brilliant start to March and we are full of plans for the year ahead on the farm. We are looking forward to the arrival of the first cria ( baby Alpaca) at the end of April, our Alpaca duvets and pillows should arrive towards the end of March and our vegetable patch will be given some much needed attention in the coming days and weeks.
