Spring Tour

I took a tour of the yard yesterday looking for signs of spring and just checking on things. There were lots of spring bulbs sending up their leaves. There were buds on lots of the daffodils. Here are some buds on the forsythia bush. It has never been a spectacular bush though. We moved it last year, so I was hoping it would do better this year.

Star followed me around as I took my tour. She is the best dog ever.

Here is Clover our heifer calf. Her spots sure look black to me. When you get up close they appear more brown. She is a jersey heifer if you can believe that.

I went over by the sheep fence and they came running.



Here is one of our roosters. These chickens are huge. I often catch a glimpse of them running and wonder whose dog is out there and then look again and it is a chicken.

Our pond is REALLY full. We are expecting more rain this coming week. We saw a pair of mallard ducks in the pond this morning. I don't know if they will stick around or not. I am not overly fond of ducks. They are very messy.

Lovely pictures. I especially love the sheep. Their short wool makes me want to give them a good backrub.
