It feels today as if all the rain that hasn’t fallen in April has arrived overnight and all day. The shepherd arrived late this afternoon to feed the sheep who welcomed him with raucous baaing. I took the photo through an upstairs window. The lambs have certainly grown and have lost both their baby-ness and their springiness. .
Through the window I also took a photo of the tulips on the steps being battered by rain and wind. When I looked at the photo I realised that a couple had broken off so I brought them in and found several others that looked as if they need some tlc.
After an hour or so of having the orange ones indoors, I began to realise that they have a wonderful scent. I haven’t met scented tulips before. I shall certainly plant more of these next year after I have checked their name.
