Every year Mom is happy
to see her daffodils bloom
because they are one of the
first signs of Spring -
this year they almost lost their bloom
before we got a picture of them.

The deer are out grazing,
morning and evening
and sometimes during the day.
Soon, we will see their new velvet antlers
and their little babies.

Calves are already being born
on Rocky Creek Farm.
"Carrleigh" our Charolais doesn't like us,
but if you look closely,
you can see a little calf behind her -
it is black with a white face.

Silly Lilly - what's she doing?
Roaching in the road!!

Our Japanese Fan Bush
is starting to bud
and will bloom
all Summer long.

We even have what Mom calls
"wild hyacinths"
in our pen.
We think Ruairi
must have kept them
mowed down before.
Or maybe they weren't there.

And just like every where else,
there is a handsome young fellow
looking out for a pretty lass.

But Mom has cautioned us
that it could still snow -
She says it snowed 18 inches
on April 28, 1978.
She remembers the date
because that's the year
our human brother was born.

Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Ivy

Spring is here, I think....great shots! However, I do agree -- Mr. Winter can always stop by for one or two more visits!

Our daffies aren't in bloom yet but the crocus is! We were out in the garden today and mom is afraid to uncover too much. She thinks we're going to have a white Easter! Time will tell!

Love ya lots,

There are calves and bison calves in the fields around here, too. We've been busy rolling and getting covered with leaves and twigs. Mom is always pulling them out of our curls.

Wow. Spring is in the air! It's hard to tell here, since it's been so warm already. I prefer having the 4 seasons like where you live. More orderly! Funny how we remember things like the weather when BIG events happen in our lives. Glad you made it to the hospital!! xx

What lovely photos! I would love to live where you are because I could use some cows and deer as scenery! How do you like them? Do you bark at them or do you just look at them from a safe distance? Spring is here in NH too and it is so nice to have warm weather! I hope it lasts, don't you?
