Life On The Farm

Life is good. There are trials, there are heart aches, there are pains.... but life is good. I am so grateful to the Lord that I live on a farm. I never want to lose sight of the fact that living here is a privilege.

Here is Purl with her twins, Milk and Honey. I love this picture of her. Can you come up with a good caption for the look on her face? If you think of one, leave it in the comments section.

This little guy is so precious. I love this picture.

It is fun to see the little lambs peeking at you from the tall grass.

Here is my sweet Daughter-in-love holding Pepper's little girl.

This is our newest little lambie. This is Rachael's baby girl.

Here is Abigail's little guy hollering for her. They lose sight of their mommas in the tall grass and then cry out in a panic.

This is Rachael's little girl again. See the little white spot on top of her head? You can see it better in the second picture.

The lambs are SO FUN to watch. They leap and run. Sometimes they will stand in a group and it looks like popcorn. They just jump up in place.

Here is Pepper with her little girl.

We have been blessed with an abundance of rain for which we are very grateful. I love to see the raindrops on the ferns at the side of the house. It looks like diamonds.

I am sure this is a weed. It is growing in the grass right outside my garden. It is sure pretty though. So lacy...

I have no idea what these are. :) They are in my flower garden, but I don't remember planting them.

The orange lilies are in bloom again.

I think these are some sort of wild Geranium or something. They are pretty.

This is on our Flowering Crab Apple tree.

Stella de Oros lilies.

We have lots of little peaches and apples. This is the peach tree.

New growth on an oak tree. They go from this to being totally green. Sort of the opposite of what they do in the Autumn.

We had some really neat clouds on the horizon last night.

Today, I was out checking on things and got pretty close to our rooster. He is huge. My friend Ginny says he is not a rooster, but a man in a chicken suit. :) This is only part of his girls. The rest were busy I guess. He is a Light Brahma. Two of the hens in this picture are Rhode Island Reds. One is an Americauna and one is some sort of Silkie.

I have already been picking herbs for drying. Here is some peppermint and some oregano.

I want to take this time to thank those of you who use my links on the side bar. Also, for those of you who signed up under me in Swagbucks. When you click through on my Amazon link, they pay me with a gift card for their site. On the Swagbucks, for every 450 points I earn, I pick an Amazon gift card. Also, if you sign up under me in Swagbucks, then when you get a point (up to your first 1000), then I get a point too. I have earned 24 $5 gift cards since last November. Anyway, I saved up my gift cards and bought myself an umbrella swift and yarn ball winder. The swift came today, so I set up and have been playing. :) Thank you for helping me earn a little bit on the side!!!

I hope you have all entered for a chance to win the $60 gift certificate above. Also, don't forget to give me name suggestions for the lambs in the comments on that post. Once the $60 give away is complete, I will be showing you the prizes for the lamb names contest. You are gonna love it!!!
