Sewing, Sheep and Clematis

24 Apr

My next project is sewing scrub caps. I’m trying to do the same process on each cap in turn to save time. Here they a have all been pinned and two have been tacked. I’m hoping to get them sewn tomorrow. The weather’s been so good that I’m gardening much of the day too, today planting the Sugar Snap Peas and potting up the Kalettes (Flower Sprouts)  that I have brought on from seed and prepping the box for them with shovel loads of compost.

The lambs spend much of their day being really sedate, just munching away at the grass near to their mothers and then suddenly, they all gather and race around the field, jumping and scrambling and leaving their mothers munching and murdling at their youngsters.  It seems the lambs have reached their teenage ‘years.’ I have not managed to video them yet as their moments of madness are sudden and brief. Here is a peaceful video for you, full of birdsong.

Another Clematis has come into flower, Huldine, very pretty with its touch of green in the white and its purple centre.

      Delighted that you likes the video. It has been such a delight to have the lambs in the field behind. Sadly, they have all gone – I don’t like to think about where or why…….
