That time of year again!!

The lilac trees are now in bloom and the smell is heavenly. We have made up some pots and put them on the patio - i love the blue pot - its colour reminds me of the mediterranean.

Things are sprouting in the garden - rhubbarb at the back of the pic is going mad as usual! Sprouts, broccoli, runner and broad beans, and beetroot are looking good at the moment. I thought i would take a pic of the garden before the weeds get going!!!
We also have some new neighbours!!!

These two lambs were doing a spot of sun bathing!

This little group kept trying to lick my camera!!!

and these three were giving their mum a hard time by leaping and pinging all over the place!!
I do love this time of year.

Hurray for pinging lambies!

I agree with Emma - pinging lambs are wonderful! (fabulously descriptive word Maria - just sums them up perfectly!)

P.S. word verification today is "hylytop" - isn't that where Trashy lives?

Wow Maria ... it's so green and lush over there!!! LOVE the lilac tree. And the pinging lambs and licky calves ... what can I say ... just adorable ;o).
Joy :o)

That lilac looks sublime! Shall we sit under it and knit and drink tea?

I do Locket ! I do live on the 'hylytop'!

I wonder if CK's kit would pick up 'pinging lambs'? Do lambs swim???

Lovely springy summery post Maria and I love those pinging lambs too :o)

Your garden looks lovely. I haven't even planted a bean this year - I may have to chuck some lettuce seeds about before the week is out!!
