Lambs of all ‘sheeps’ and sizes are among the more adorable clues that a new season is under way in Suffolk this half term.
Families have been flocking to Baylham House Rare Breeds Farm for hands-on cuddling sessions with the fluffy fledglings since it opened its doors for the new season at the weekend.
Dozens of youngsters from Suffolk and beyond relished the opportunity for a snuggle or two as warmer weather drew bumper crowds to the attraction.
The newborn lambs – which are welcoming visitors until the half term celebrations draw to a close on Sunday – are not the only signs that spring is on its way.
Snowdrops are already starting to bloom across Suffolk – the iconic white plants often signal a change in seasons, as they tend to grow in dry and mild weather, though they can cope with frost and rain.
