Yesterday was the most gorgeous of spring days.
The garden is particularly glorious on such days and it was definitely a good day for having babies in a paddock as opposed to a birthing unit but my initial predictions were wrong.
We do have two newborn lambs but not from the mum I thought would deliver first. She, poor thing, is still lumbering around more closely resembling an aircraft carrier than a sheep but those babies are still safely tucked up inside.
Instead it was lovely Minty who became the first mum.
I’ve been back and forth almost endlessly today just to check and ooh and aah at the new arrivals but that’s what grandmas get to do isn’t it.
Now I am ready and impatient for the next batch!
