"The weather outside is frightening..."
Gosh it's been wet and wild here in Southern Ireland. Normally we get the Atlantic gales from November to around Christmas. But this year it's going all the way through to March. March usually comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion.
Any road. Normally we get some great days when the cattle are taken to the pasture for the day. I can then give their stall a thorough cleaning out and they have a 'cows disco'. They dance and jump and run up and down hill and dale and generally act rather silly. It's my favourite sight of the year: The "cows disco."
Still can't get on the old vegetable plot and I honestly think we are going through climate change. A lot of the older country folk I talk to say exactly the same. The seasons have changed for the worse. Some say it's down to pollution from all the cars, households and industry. I dunno, but I wish it would book up. I have lots of jobs that I want to do. I bet you have? Perhaps we should grow some rice in the saturated fields?
Keep warm and here's to some sunshine.
