All the riders wore Harris Tweed outfits or accessories and it certainly was a feast for the eyes. I loved the bright colours and the amazing cycle with the trailer was such fun.
I have bought several bags of compost but intend to mix a little peat and sand together for the base to save on the expense, they will certainly take some filling.
The daffodils are growing in clumps around the cottage, a sure sign that Spring is finally making an appearance.
Seeing the lambs was also such a treat reinforcing the feeling that the seasons have now changed and giving us hope that better weather is on the way. The marking on the ewes show how many lambs they are carrying when they are scanned, one stripe = single, two stripes = twins. Each ewe usually has a mark which denotes their croft so if they go to common grazing on the machair each crofter knows their own sheep. Hope that helps.
Not sure what the purple was on the lamb in the previous post but will check with my neighbour next time I see them. What a difference a change in the weather makes, we have a renewed energy and have started to make plans once again. Gerard's rehabilitation thankfully is been done on the Island but it does mean driving backwards and forwards to town, taking about 40 minutes each way. A minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things. The sun setting over the croft is always a joy to behold and gives us renewed strength for another day.
As always thank you so much for all your lovely comments and a very warm welcome to a new follower, I hope you enjoy our little adventures through life.
See you soon.
