It could have been Spring...

...today.  The weather was glorious, with the temperature reaching 17 degrees at one point.

Most of my day was spent out on the balcony, making the most of the blue sky and sunshine.

Of course, as soon as the sun starts to go down, the temperature drops dramatically and we know it;s still winter.  But it does help to lift your mood and everyone seems so much happier.

One little chap who wasn't too happy for a brief moment today, was a lamb who is only a few weeks old.  He has been out walking past our house with his mother and their owner during the past week, and this morning Mr A picked him up for a cuddle.  With the shepherdess on the other side of the gate with his mother,  Mr A handed the lamb to me for a hug.  Gorgeous little lamb.  We put him down in the garden for a little while, but he cried for his mum.  Mr A opened the gate.  In rushed mother sheep to "rescue" her baby. 


Looking for his mother

  1. Hasn't the weather been lovely today? We took the bike out to meet up with many other bikers in Őzdere. It seemed like every biker in Ege was out enjoying the coast road!

  2. Jake met his first lambs face to face today. The second he realised they weren't dogs, he started a deep growl so I dragged him away.

    1. Ah so Jake isn't keen on lambs then! Poppy barked furiously, but I kept her on the balcony and the lamb was at the top of the garden. Not sure how she would be face to face.

    1. I don't envy you auntiegwen. Snow is very pretty of course, but I don't like it. The days are lovely at the moment, but the nights are very cold.

  6. Snow here too, Ayak and more forecast. Some of your sunshine and warmth would be very welcome. I love lambs too, but it's too early for lambs up here. It is so touching to hear the lambs calling for their mothers if they've got separated and their mothers replying.

    1. The weather has changed again today Perpetua after this little taste of Spring. We have gale force winds and rain on the way, although it's not really cold. Don't envy you the snow though!
