Primavera, the portuguese word for spring: lots of flowers are out and the fields green. We had sufficient rain to keep the vegetation going, but the lake has not come up so far, the river hardly ever running, as the soil soaked all the rain water up the moment it touched the ground.
Spring has also arrived in the hen yard, with numerous hens hatching. Also our two geese have managed to find a suitable nest each, where they are sitting, patiently waiting for their 4 weeks to be up for the goslings to break through the shells! And there are still plenty of eggs for us to eat, and to paint Easter Eggs!
The horses are content in their lush fields, two of them having competed numerous times in February and March, doing really well and improving from time to time.
There is big activity in the air, birds singing, frogs and owls calling, cats busy hunting or sunbathing
