Spring has sprung on Rum

1st of May and after a very long winter it feels like everything is finally waking up from hibernation. We’ve been hearing cuckoos for the last week or so and seeing the odd bee buzzing and swallow darting around. The spring flowers are out with dog violets, primroses and carpets of celandines sprinkled like confetti. The bluebells are ready to burst into life and the daffodils which have been flowering in waves are still hanging on.

Up on the crofts there has been much excitment at the birth of piglets on Croft 3, we’re still waiting for lambs on Croft 1 and a broody hen on Croft 3 sitting on a huge clutch of eggs gives us hope of chicks before too long aswell. The community polytunnel has seeds sprouting, tiny salad leaves shooting and the promise of all sorts of delicious crops to come.
