Well, we have been very blessed with a mild, yet still wet enough, winter season this year. I am currently looking out over green paddocks with some good grass cover that will be nutritious for the lambs that are currently being born. They look very hale and hearty and are starting their evening games and playing chasey together. They are the most delightful animals to watch. Their joy of being part of this world and sharing it with their friends while still being looked after by the ewe is no different than any other animal on this planet that we share.
The daffodils are all out in the garden and they take away from the odd weed that has been allowed to show its head. Every day I am learning more about which of these ‘weeds’ is actually useful to human nutrition. I have been reading Isabel Shippards book on Survival Foods which is an absolute treasure trove of information. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in what foods are good for you and also available and at little cost, except that of time spent in learning.
Cleo, the house dog has been seen protecting the house area and chasing foxes out of the garden. She has been very brave and has a scar on her nose to show how diligent she has been. I am not sure she would know what to do if she actually caught one, but she has a great sense of purpose in trying.
Well that is all for now, I will look forward to another bit of news from Yarallah in the next few weeks. Cath
