A Taste Of Spring.

It was an absolutely stunning day here today.  We got the first inkling of spring being just around the corner.  The next week is going to be wet and rainy again.  That's OK - when you are in the cropping business rain in August is like money in the bank....

To celebrate the first sunny day for ages we went on another exploring mission around The New Farm.  (It was less cold and wet than our last mission which involved creek exploration.)  We all hopped on our bikes and went for a ride.

And this is what we saw.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my last post - Farmgirl is now well on the mend and we are all getting some sleep again.

Enjoy your weekend.

Just gorgeous! Spring is arriving on the other side of the country too. Canberra is now full of blossom and daffodils. I do love this time of year.

That first sign of summer is just so uplifting I think. Looking beautiful- it's good to see you're getting the balance of rain and sun xx
