Winters chill

It seems it’s time for the island to shrug off winter’s chill and get back to work. It’s been a mild winter, certainly compared to last year but the first signs of spring are coming back to the island.The first snowdrops and daffodils are poking their heads above the soil. The ewe’s on the shore are coming along in their pregnancy, they’ll be brought inland in the next few weeks ready to welcome some tiny lambs, and I do mean tiny!
I suspect it’ll be a busier summer than last year for me, if the last 2 weeks are any indication it will definitely be busy and full of even more new experiences! I’m up for the challenge though and look forward to seeing my sheep again (they really are bonny), 2017’s Sheep Festival, long nights and warmer weather, finishing up my university work for the year, seeing the island busy again.
What are your hopes for this summer?
