We have gotten some rainy weather. The severe weather stayed south of us so far. The spring rain has sure made the grass turn green. Flowers are blooming. Birds are chirping. The horses are shedding gobs of hair, as their winter coats come off. Spring has sprung!

We have had some very nice spring days. We continue to make progress on this years plowing. As I write, the fields are too wet for field work. We will work on other projects, but first, I will brush the horses and try to get more of the shedding hair off of them.

April showers do bring May flowers, but also growing pastures, green hay fields and emerging leaves on the trees. What a wonderful time of year. I am thankful to enjoy another season as the Earth wakes up from its winter sleep.

Moo and her buddy

Moo and her buddy

April 21, 2015

This pig cracks me up. She looks like a mouse sometimes! She is growing slow, just like I want. She will be a momma some day. I want her to be healthy, strong and tame. She is all of the above and fun to look at too. My granddaughter calls her Moo. She thinks the young pig looks like a cow. Me, I think she looks like a mouse šŸ˜®

The spring green up continues. It is just nice to sit and look at the landscape. Soon bugs will be out, grass will be needing mowed and it will be hot. I like spring and fall. Both sides of summer are loaded with beautiful color and adventure. The flowers at both times of the year punctuate the scene with their beauty.

Our project list is looking manageable. I have plenty of things to keep me busy, but looking at piglets, green grass and the first flowers of springĀ are at the top of my list right now. I will give myself permission to reflect on old friends, look for the beauty in the little things and celebrate the cycle of life.
