A walk in the woods produced plenty of birdsong from the usual characters, augmented by the first Chiffchaffs. The understory is carpeted by Wood Anemones and Wild Garlic, the latter giving its pleasant scent to the woodland (and to my boots long after I took them off).
From the edge of the woods could be heard Skylarks singing over the downland, and a couple of Yellowhammers rattling at each other along the hedgerows.
Nearby was a field of Alpacas, looking as daft as usual. But you long to sink you hands into the thick coat, which looks so soft.
When I got home, the current Mrs K. showed me a game of Solitaire that she had bought from Traidcraft, the Fair Trade organisation, which had llamas instead of counters.
So as well as bananas, coffee, wine etc, we now buy Fair Trade llamas!
