    Spring, spring, the glorious spring.

    What a wonderful spring we are having!
    In amongst all the man made Brexit shite, I took a ride round the local area, having been confined to barracks for a few weeks, and thoroughly enjoyed the ride out.Crops look fantastic, oilseed rape is just coming in to flower, with full thick crops. Wheat and barley crops have all had top dressing on time, they look great. Cultivations for vining peas are perfect.
    Daffodils on the roadside, magnolias in full blossom, what a blessing!
    As I sit here, I am watching small birds scurrying round, building their nests, we have ducks and geese on our lake, together with funny little dabchicks.
    Why can we not count our blessings, instead of childish clowns in London acting as prima donnas in order to claim their expenses?

    A great post, Jack, listing some of the positives of life. I envy your good spring; here, the autumn is causing concern, with several months of below average rainfall continuing.

    I listened to the vote in the Commons last night while on a break from sleeping, and I do not understand how anyone could believe Brexit can work. Cameron has a lot to answer for.

    I will not spoil what I hoped was a positive post, only to say that I have a feeling you and I might not agree.
    I just feel we live in such a wonderful world, which is spoilt by man!

    The spring is wonderful and we are making the most of it however I am sure we will have to pay for it with the weather to come.

    late 70's was it?
    remember we were taking a cut of silage and we had sheered a bolt on something. We were gathered about the machine working on it and thinking how B cold it was turned round and saw the snow whiting out the horizon. the field was covered for a few minutes

    You are probably quite right, it was when my sister in law went to live in Italy, and my first experience of sunny Italy.
    That in the end led to my involvement with the Caravaggi family and mill mixers.
