My first bouquet of the season is in the center of the kitchen table. White lilacs and purple lilacs make me Happy! Happy! Happy!
There are hanging baskets of flowers hanging on the screen porch. Red Geraniums and white Impatiens make a pretty combination.Â Today, the hummingbirds found them. It is a beautiful thing to sit on the porch and watch the lovely little birds enjoy my flowers.
Our farm truck is an old Dodge Van. Bob and his farm hand are loading up two old sheep to be recycled. ( butcher shop)Â The seats have been removed from the Van and the sheep get “put” in the back. It is interesting to watch. Maybe, some day, we will have a pick up […]

These Polypay lambs love being in the pasture. The great Pyrenees dogs are happy to have something else to guard. The lambs are for sale and will be ready to go to their homes in Mid June.
When Bob introduced our farm helper to one of the garter snakes, it was not exactly love at first sight. However, they soon got use to each other. Too bad his sister wasn’t here to join in the fun. Maybe next time.Â How about it, Irene??
