Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Spring Lamb


I feel I would be short-changing you at this time of year if I didn’t bring you a post of sheep and lambs. So I’ve rounded them up.

It’s no easy matter keeping a

field of sheep healthy

Two lambs is good, three’s a bonus

Trying mixed grazing

Baa 5 a day

From a distance this one had a slightly demonic look about it

Demonic Baa

Little Bo peep has lost her sheep
And doesn’t know where to find them.
Leave them alone and they’ll come home,
Bringing their tails behind them

Baa tails

(well till they fall off)

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Too cute!! Like most babies, they are just adorable. And then they grow up… 🙂

  2. Lovely!

    A farm near here always lams early, usually late January!

  3. awww who doesn’t love a baby lamb… their little baa is so sweet and I can see them now jumping up and down. they are so cute when they do that. your pictures are beautiful!!

  4. Some Lambs had wandered from there Mums on thursday night and couldnt get back to them.
    So the sight of a dozen fellrunners rounding them up was quite funny. Anyway after 20minutes they were safely back were they belong.

  5. Awww!

    Now see here’s the problem. I went over to Providence Farm to take pictures for Torch Lake Views and now I can’t eat bacon anymore, and then I visit UHDD and now how on earth am I going to have lamb? My vegetarian niece is probably amused that her omnivore aunt is gradually, one animal at a time, being converted.

  6. They are just adorable! It makes me remember this Danish word play:

    Får får får?
    Nej, får får ikke får, får får lam.

    This is because the word FÅR has 2 meanings in Danish; 1. SHEEP and 2.GET/HAVE(a baby)

    (Directly translated: Does shep have sheep?
    No, sheep does not have sheep, sheep have lambs)
