That and something else I've not seen in ages - shadows.
Yup - Shadows mean sunshine :)
Yeah- I know there is a layer of snow still on the ground - but LOOK!
Himself, me, Eldest and Youngest striking a pose......
Firstly - thank you for your kind comments about the flowers, I still have a jugful of tulips and daffodils left over from the arranging.
Their sunshiny faces certainly help bring an air of spring into the house :)
Progress report on my knitting - slow and steady (mainly due to my lack of understanding the pattern which is written in Finnish or Swedish) but with help and hints from my knit and natter friends, the back is nearly complete.
There have been another batch of piggies at work, just as cute as the last lot, only this time I'd not taken my camera in - that will teach me to leave at home.....grrrr.....
And finally - Grammy - the colourful patches on the lambs and ewes are sprays of paint put on by the farmers.
When the ewe lambs, she is numbered and the lambs are given the same number. Some farmers are quite methodical and will number the entire flock as they lamb. Others will use the alphabet if there are only a few ewes......then there are some that just spray haphazardly a vaguely similar pattern on mum and baby.
Ok, that's enough waffle for now. My knitting, tea and little piece of chocolate are all calling to me and I had better go and see!
How was your Saturday?
Did you get out and about?
Have you seen swallows?
Have you seen shadows?
I certainly hope so! Enjoy the rest of your weekend xxxxxxhawthorn
