What a Difference a Week Makes

Spring has sprung.

This good weather has boosted energy levels in the willows and the lime green leaves are well and truly on their way, unfolding and proudly presenting their waxy, vibrant skin. 

Last week I took both of my Labradors, Belle and B, into the willows. It was B's first time there, so it was a bit of an experiment. There are roe deer, muntjac, hares and pheasants everywhere so it was a real test of restraint for both dogs and a test of patience for me! The weather was stunning - crisp, blazing, blue skies with a gentle warm breeze. The girls were quite happy to just sit and chill and watch me sweat. Oh to be a dog!
