Spring doesn’t officially start for more than a month, but already there are lambs cavorting around the fields.
School used to stop for three weeks in August when I was a kid, and I always reckoned that the wild ducks starting laying their eggs around August 15. So come the August vacation and I’d be looking for ducks’ nests. I always (privately) think that Spring begins mid-August!
Somewhere in today’s music there’s bits of an old nursery rhyme (I think).
