Things are starting to feel quite spring like out there in the pastures, as the thaw continues and the mud dries up (well, it will someday). And with that, comes the perpetual rearranging of pastures, the cleaning out of the... Continue reading

April showers bring .... snow? Well, yes, sometimes they do. We woke up to just a couple of inches on the ground, enough to cover everything in a layer of white. It doesn't feel so dire though, after having a... Continue reading

Yes....from the garden! It is an entirely murky, mucky, muddy mess, interspersed with snow still in places out there. So much so that losing one's boot to the slurpy mud is par for the course during the course of every... Continue reading

There's one - Emily - who is not fond of us getting too close to her babies. So we give her (and them) extra space. The others are so familiar with us that they've been great about letting us visit the lambs. ~amanda

It's a vest-like thing that goes with her dress. It's loaded with pockets and therefore full of treasures like rocks and acorns and pennies. ;) ~amanda

It's just the boys and I listening to that one, they're 11 and 13. It felt appropriate for them to me, but of course everyone has different levels of comfort with that! ~amanda

Hooray! ;) ~amanda

A cup of black tea, a good book, and Jane on my lap (shh...she's my favorite). That was my noontime treat after a morning full of magazine work, while my babes were off at riding lessons and dance and all... Continue reading

Thawing out, that's what we're doing. Quite happily, and quite often interrupted by lambs. Because really, with six spunky and snuggly baby lambs in the backyard, it's hard to get a whole lot done other than that. It goes a... Continue reading

More from the barn today, where all four little lambs and their Mamas are doing well. Every single one of us feels the pull to them - they're irresistable, they are. Adelaide is out there well past dark and her... Continue reading
