Another great picture of the day Rob.The lemon looks like it is ready to make lemonade. Hurry up spring!

I think your bowl of porridge must equate to our bowl of oatmeal. I will have to google it to find out for sure.

Nice looking calf...we had to do that with calves sometime when I was a kid! Does the Yew tree have a problem...seems you've cut quite a lot of dead wood out. Can you burn Yew in your wood stove?
