Lambs and Pear Blossoms

 

Hey my friends! Are you having a great week?  I hope so!  This past week we have made a few additions to our little farm…

Meet “Dolly”

And this is “Patches”

These sweet little lambs don’t particularly like us, except from a distance.  So, it will take some time for them to warm up to us.  But aren’t they precious?  They make the sweetest “baaaaa” sound you have ever heard!

And our Bradford Pear trees are full of gorgeous blooms right now.  I had to bring some branches in to enjoy.

Did I ever tell you that we moved our nesting boxes outside to the back porch?  You know, this used to be hanging on the wall in the dining room…  but I needed a change.  I dressed it up with a few blooming branches, too.

We also just picked up new baby chicks, which I’ll share with you later…Well, that’s all I have for today…

I’ll be back real soon!

Sharing today at

White Wednesday with Kathleen

Blessings,

Are those new baby chicks gonna nest on the house or do they have their own special spot?

Oh my goodness! My daughters would die if they saw these little lambs! We have dreams of moving to the country and they've asked about a lamb. Are they hard to care for and keep? They sure are cute!

awww..your new babies are so sweet. The Bradford pear trees here in OK are really coming out as well...too soon though! It was 80 degrees yesterday and we have a cool front with even colder temps for the weekend to, hopefully, put those buds and blossoms on hold for a while.

I love your lambs. When I was in high school, I raised sheep. I love their personalities. We had a couple of bummer lambs that acted just like dogs. :)

I think the nesting boxes look great out there.

I was thrilled to see an article in our newspaper this morning about you! Very nice!

Have a great weekend.

Awww! they are so gorgeous, what an "Idyllic" life you have, I am so jealous.

When my boys were younger they had a lamb at their school, I had it one weekend when it was their turn for the bottle feeding as it was only small. It created quite a stir with the neighbours bleeting all night. Was fun.

Lovely photos as usual ☺
