Mary Had A Little Lamb

Posted by Happy Homemaker UK




The next few weeks in England are informally known as the 'lambing season'
Little lambs dot many of the hillsides




Aren't they adorable?!


Smile!


And who could resist a pig race?! 'Grease Lightning' won :)




Ooh, how cute am I?




My kids wish their names were Mary (for she had a little lamb, ya know)

- all photos taken by me -

 Come Back :) Thursday is 'Post Of The Month Club' Linky Party (details here)

I'm so glad you went out. Indeed the lambs are everywhere, and I am so relieved to see them. They are the surest sign that winter has now passed.

Lambing is wonderful. I love to watch them gambol around the field. When we lived in England there were sheep all around our village. They are so sweet.

For over twenty years we had a house on a sheep farm in the UK so these photos are a familiar sight, thanks for the memories.

Oh, Miss Laura, I am SO jealous! How beautiful it all looks. And those precious little lambs, I wish I could just pick one up and give it a good squeeze! Your photos are simply lovely. I can't wait to visit this blog again.

Good Afternoon Laura, I loved your pics, and I enjoy your take on life in England. One thing though, you forgot to put your 'London clock' forward an hour at the weekend. lol

About Last Weekend said...

Love pics of lambs and sheep, we used to get a motherless lamb every spring and we all adored it until it was time to feed at 6am in the morning and then it was Mum's job...and now I'm the Mum there's going to be no lambs in the backyard....just enjoy seeing them out the car window

I love love your Spring-y post, Laura! The grass is beautiful and the little lambs just adorable.

Have a sweet evening! xxx

Devonay said...

So love all of your pics! I've been wandering around through your old posts and I am really enjoying them! I feel as if I am there and it's making for a lovely afternoon vacation...

Meg said...

How bucolic! Exactly how I imagine English countryside to be.
And Laura, thanks for your help on making buttons, really appreciate it!!

Tanya (a Taste of T) said...

Great pictures!!! They look so happy and cozy.

Sarah said...

Your photos capture the essence of the English picturesque idyll, and those sheep are waaaay cuter than the scrawny Aussie merinos I'm accustomed to, which apparently produce their finest wool under the roughest, rockiest conditions!

Oh, and go Grease Lightening! What a hoot!

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

Aren't they the cutest things ever?! I never knew about Lambing Day...very interesting.

xinex said...

I love these photos especially the first one that looks so peaceful and serene...Christine

Laura, so you found some lambs. Trouble is they grow so fast...in a matter of weeks they are not as cute, but larger and naughty with gangly legs...a bit like 12 year old boys. Beautiful photos. Robx
