    What does spring mean where you live?

    Monday was the first home baseball game for the Marlins here so it must be spring (not like we can tell)? I found it interesting that in the life section of the paper here in South East Florida that spring is the time for gator mating season. We've seen them wonder into some interesting places over the year so one must be vigilant. What's a spring ritual where you live?
    Cheers,

    Michael

    Tell everyone you saw it on IWL!

    Boat Races 2015: Oxford women and men beat Cambridge

    Lambs.

    We have our own breed of sheep down here on the marsh, and the field at the end of our garden is a delivery suite. Without making a point of looking, I probably see a dozen births a day.





    The Black Lion does a lovely Romney Marsh lamb pie.
