This weekend was a first, for us, of many wonderful things.
The first skylark aria filling the moorland with a glorious sound
The first lump of frogspawn nestling in the now naturalised mill pond
The first deliciously green hawthorn shoots
The first batch of lambs
The first hares on our favourite 'hare lane' up on the moors
The first time noticing the curlews and lapwings paring up
It made us all smile - especially when the sun came out.
Hope your weekend was as gently lovely as ours,
a perfect antidote to all that madness
that seems to be
