Seasonal Change

"To be interested in the changing seasons is a happier state of mind than to be hopelessly in love with spring." - George Santayana

And there are changes...In the valley things are slowly coming to life. Last night we had rain but go up the mountain a little and there was a dusting of snow. This is one of the times I am happy to live in a valley!
Every morning we awaken to more and more birds singing. Friday morning I was finally able to get a picture of the geese flying over. Last time my batteries were dead.Yesterday morning a flock of 25 turkeys were taking a stroll across the yard. Their breeding season should be starting at the end of the month.

I was also able to finally get a picture of a robin. I saw them on the way to my Aunt's mass on 2/23 but didn't have the camera so nobody believed me.

In the evening the deer start coming down into the fields looking for the earliest wisps of green.
In the barn there isn't much to crow about. The second ewe hasn't lambed yet. The first lambs are getting big quick. It is amazing what a week can do. We took Aila (bottle baby) up and look at the difference in size. Her siblings are much bigger than her. She eats like a pig and frolics around so I hope everything is okay.
In fiber news I finally got a pic of the dyed rug. I made another small round one which is in the dyebath now. I did knit alittle on the sock but I guess I have been in a funk. I have to find something to yank me out. It is that time between Winter/Spring and Fall/Winter that this seems to happen- I may need another hobby to fill in during those periods of time! NOT!

Everything looks great!

I am going to have to get out of my funk and get over there to see those little lambies before they get much bigger!
