It's spring! We are so excited, we wet our plants.

Love that sign! (Well, apart from the missing punctuation. Don't get me started...)

Is it spring? Maybe.

This morning, I had the most beautiful sunny ride out with Poppy, who had spring in her hooves. She was dancing! The trees are all in bud, the grass is coming through that freshest green of all greens, the hedgerows are bejewelled with primroses and wild daffodils.

It was truly sublime.

When I turned Poppy out into her field, I exchanged her winter rug for a lightweight one. This might be a fatal error. If tomorrow is blowing a gale, freezing, sleeting or snowing...
