Signs of Spring

22 Feb

We saw more record warm weather today.  It’s really looking like spring.  It’s normal to see kids with their maa out in pasture this time of year.

It’s not unusual for the chickens to start laying with the longer days.

I can see the sun set more to the west rather than in the southwest corner of the farm.

These are all pretty normal for this time of year.  But the grass is not supposed to be green.

The magnolia tree is not supposed to be getting ready to bloom.

The goats should not be losing their winter coats.

It makes me nervous for what the coming spring and summer will bring for weather.

I hope you’ll consider joining me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.

Way Too Warm

16 Feb

We’re having record warm temperatures.  I hate to complain about such beautiful weather, but it really is quite concerning that we’ve had no real winter.

It leads to it’s own problems.

What is That?

What were the goats looking at?  (Sorry for the small, crappy cell phone picture, but it’s all I had with me, and I had to hang up on my mom to take these pictures.  Don’t worry, she’s used to that kind of stuff from me.)

Yep.  They noticed Sky.

He was pretty unimpressed.

Dolly, with her triplets, was a little concerned.

If there had not been a fence, Penny would have killed him.  Seriously.

He did finally notice them and think they were a little interesting.

He was really good though.  He didn’t even bark at them.

I do hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
