The Look of Spring

26 Apr

I just love this time of year with nature coming back to life after the long winter.

The birds are singing.

The butterflies are starting to show up.

It makes me wish I actually had flowers in my yard, but, you  know, goats…dog…

I have to be satisfied with the few blooms I can find.

And of course, it wouldn’t be spring without kids.

This really is my favorite time of year.

The Kind of Weekend

8 Apr

This past weekend was the kind when you could stand outside and watch the grass turn green.

The weather was warm.

We had a bit of rain.  It was enough to make the goats want to lounge in the pasture instead of the barnyard.

It was pretty much perfect.

The goats are really enjoying the green.

And the weekend ended with a quick storm that left a beautiful rainbow behind it.

Truly perfect!

A Spring Day

14 Mar

Monday of spring break was beautiful!  We had sunshine and warmth.

The birds were also enjoying the weather.  Widow Goose was taking a bath in the melting snow.

The peacock was enjoying himself.

I have finally figured out a way to tell dad and baby apart–the length of their spurs.  This one is baby peacock.

Odie decided to try going out to pasture.

She only made it as far as the tree, but it’s a start.  I’m dreaming of the day I get to quit feeding them full hay.

Snickers even decided he could lounge on the deck for a while and soak up the sun.

Lily and Cupid really have bonded. In a way I feel bad because Lily is starting to really show her age.  I’m not sure how long they will have each other.

I thought Antigone was being awfully weird sleeping in the snow.  Then I noticed she was in a food pan.

Our beautiful weather didn’t last long, but that one sunny day was reallly nice.  We’re still warm, but all the rain has melted almost all the snow, and we’re deep into mud season.
