Spring is here!

For me the best thing about spring is undoubtedly farm animals. Unfortunately, the only lambs, piglets or calves to be found in central London are usually on a plate so this week I've had to make do with some photos and videos my Dad has sent from the family farm in Aberdeenshire.

We have three lovely lady Highland Cows called Morag, Fiona and Roslin and Roslin's 1 year old boy Barclay. This year all three ladies are pregnant and on Saturday Roslin gave birth to this gorgeous girl.

Her name is April and she is SO FLUFFY! Two other calves are due any day now so I'm definitely feeling like spring has finally arrived and hopefully I'll be able to get a glimpse of some farm animals soon. If anyone in London has orphaned lambs they'd like someone to hang out with, CALL ME!

  1. How sweet! Spring is definitely here :) You should visit one of the city farms - a slice of country joy in the big smoke!

  2. April is gorgeous! How lovely to have a family farm. Have you been to the city farm in East London? I bet they have lambs.

  3. I actually work near the Spitalfields City Farm so I should definitely get along there soon!

  4. Aww she looks so cute and April is a lovely name. That sort of activity would definitely alert you to the arrival of spring and that's just lovely.

  5. Lovely! My husband's parents have some new lambs and ducks. Ducklings are very cute!

  6. Oh. My. God. I need a baby cow.
