This year has me believing that we are in the middle of a climate shift.
It has rained more this spring than any that I can remember.
The farm is starting to feel like a rain forest.
The road that flanks our upper land looks like this...
moist and misty, lush and thickly green.
This is my favorite road in all the world.
Walking down this road is like walking down the aisle of
a magnificent, ancient cathedral....
reverently beautiful and serene.
All this rain mixed with occasional sun has made our hay field thick and long.
Unfortunately, though, it is way too wet to cut and bale the hay.
And so it continues to grow and grow and grow!
With all of this rain, the kids stay indoors....
wishing they could go out to play.
How big our babies have grown in two months and less.
We are preparing ourselves for the upcoming goodbyes.
They will soon be weaned and then will travel to their new homes.
It will be sad to see them go, but they don't stay little forever,
and we have had the best of those days!
The cutest little family is O'Malley's.
They are a close knit group...
and all stick together in the smallest of houses...
O'Malley, her doeling from last year...Sally,
and the twins born this spring.
Oh, how we hate to see the twins leave!
This spring's babies have been so much fun,
and so sugary sweet!
Just like human babies, though,
they grow up and leave...
eventually having families of their own.
