The Overnight Appearance of Green

Yesterday was a spectacular Spring day here on the farm!

The daffodils are blooming in the front pasture,
and the forsythia is blossoming around the old log cabin.

The grass has turned green overnight.
Oh how I have longed for the bright green of Spring!
Pretty soon the trees will follow suit.

Everyone seemed to enjoy basking in the sunshine...

Poor Sam had a harrowing morning.
At dawn when we were going out for morning chores,
he encountered a bear on our back deck and chased it off into our woods.
Sam might be a little goofy at times but he is definitely my protector...
my knight in furry armor... fearless and brave!

With the arrival of warmer weather, the sheep spend their daylight hours in the shade
of their little grove.

Yesterday was supposed to be shearing day, however
there was a scheduling conflict...

So, since the sheep didn't get sheared,
I decided to get myself sheared instead...
much cooler for summer.
