Spring. It's official but certainly doesn't feel like it. The sun is shining and the conditions for rambling are fantastic due to the continued dry weather but its still so cold.
There is very little colour yet in the garden but plenty of promising buds. The cattle and sheep are managing to reproduce although there is little grass to produce the mothers milk. It will be costing the farmer much more on feed this year.
We had a few visitors staying over Easter weekend but it remains quiet again until this weekend.My two workaways are here at Roineabhal to give me a hand. Cupboards are being cleaned and tidied ready for the season and we are planning to
dig and plant the potatoes in their furrows this afternoon. If you hear of 3 females dressed like Eskimo Inuk gardening in Kilchrenan you will know who it is.
