I find myself noticing the natural beauty that is just beginning to come to life around this farm. No, no foals flopped on their sides in the pasture flicking their fuzzy little tails, or chicks peeping in the barn, but spring is showing in other ways.
|the willows begin to green and the pasture is getting lush|
Deer are enjoying the rapidly greening back pasture, we hear fox barking in the night, and raccoon chatter and scream as if they were being murdered. It took us awhile to get used to these nocturnal noises, but now we can get right back to sleep after the rude awakenings.
|Mrs. Phoebe takes a break from her over the porch door nest duties|
|Mom, mom, are you coming out mom - are you coming out?|
|ooooh, these sheets will smell good tonight|
(pay no attention to you-know-who and his you-know-what)
And, lest you think we've been just wandering around taking pictures of spring, here is a shot of what Dave is doing right now....
And what Lewis is doing right now....
