We had a beautiful day today. The sun shone all day. This is the Isle of Lewis, and so, a day of sunshine is worth posting about.
This morning, we looked out to see this.
Now, I know we don't have much of a garden to talk of, but I still don't appreciate our few daffodils being had for breakfast.
Having said that, she is gorgeous, isn't she?
But there was more.....lots more going on on the croft this beautiful Spring day.
First the Builder and eldest son, DR, went to the croft beside us to......
...rake up some dung.....
(I had some photos, which appear to have been deleted and lost. Maybe that's for the best.)
The cowpats were duly spread on our vegetable plot. Yes, yes, I know it's all good for the soil; I know the minerals etc in the .... dung.... aids my veg, and for that I'm most grateful.... But (you just knew there was gonna be a 'but') there is something about all
that ...dung... sitting there in our lovely plot that is slightly unnerving.
Clearly, I have a little way to go before I am fully 'croftified'. Or certified. Or something like that.
Our friends were over with us for the day. Their kids are adorable, and they were allowed to see our museum exhibits. Okay, our tractor. It's probably as old as the Builder himself. But these kids got to drive it too. They had a ball.
Here they are with our eldest, DR. I told you they were adorable.
Of course, the lambs kept a-coming. Daughters, Catherine and Katie, are always on hand with their uncle, the Builder's Big Brother.
I've told you all before how I feel about lambs. The gory stuff is.....well.....gory. It is NOT my scene. My kids, on the other hand, are naturals.
I can assure you that this is the LEAST gory of the photos Catherine took. Suffice to say that the other photos...... no, I don't think I'll go there.
Here's Katie helping with the feeding.
But aren't they gorgeous after a day or two.
To round off the day, I planted some of these.
Aaahhh, that felt good.
When you are surrounded by nature, and by the beauty of God's creation, it takes a blindness beyond comprehension to believe the fairytale of evolution.
