Springtime!



One thing we really noticed on our recent trip to Devon was the little signs of spring.

There are loads of wild goats, and fluffy kids were grazing here and there:

We also saw a couple of beautiful, and tiny, lambs hiding at the side of the road:

Early spring, maybe - but definitely spring.

Also, not really sticking to my theme (but still incredible), we saw a lot of really impressive birds. Here's one who stopped to pose for us:

Hey Rach - thanks for stopping by my blog! Konnichiwa from Tokyo! lol.
It's so nice to see some home wildlife on here...there's virtually no animal life here and a little reminder of home is much appreciated :D

That lamb is so sweet! Spring is truly an inspirational season. We don't often get Spring in Chicago but we have it this week, although I'm afraid we don't have any lambs or kids flitting about, only birds and bunnies.

I really want a goat. Actually I really need a goat for my backyard. For real, it's way overgrown. lol

Lovely lambs. A spring in your and their steps!

The last time I stumbled upon these little ones was on a trip to the Isle of Mull at the height of 'foot and mouth'.

Oh, now I can totally see why you are vegetarian- Maybe if I lived on a farm and only used them for milk, then I would nibble on grass along side of them, soooooo cute!

That little lamb is so cute, I'm going to have to come back tomorrow to show it to my daughter!

Happy spring!

Reminds me to pop over to The Valley of The Rocks to take a few goat pics myself. Shame that some of the locals want most of the goats culled.

Aww...so cute! Nothing says spring more than baby lambs.

and to think, it's 26 years ago that we came back from our walk, admiring the spring lambs, and you refused to eat the roast leg of lamb that had been cooking away whilst we were out! The power you wielded over us!!!
