The Overnight Appearance of Green

Yesterday was a spectacular Spring day here on the farm!

The daffodils are blooming in the front pasture,
and the forsythia is blossoming around the old log cabin.

The grass has turned green overnight.
Oh how I have longed for the bright green of Spring!
Pretty soon the trees will follow suit.

Everyone seemed to enjoy basking in the sunshine...

Poor Sam had a harrowing morning.
At dawn when we were going out for morning chores,
he encountered a bear on our back deck and chased it off into our woods.
Sam might be a little goofy at times but he is definitely my protector...
my knight in furry armor... fearless and brave!

With the arrival of warmer weather, the sheep spend their daylight hours in the shade
of their little grove.

Yesterday was supposed to be shearing day, however
there was a scheduling conflict...
so shearing has been moved to the end of the week.
(if the weather holds out..... rain forecasted)

So, since the sheep didn't get sheared,
I decided to get myself sheared instead...
much cooler for summer.


  1. So glad you are experiencing the dawn of spring. It's an amazing time of year, which I appreciate so much more now after having been through a true winter.
    Love the new do!

  2. I thought you might have gotten your hair cut when I saw the photos from Monday's blog with you and Amanda planting seeds. Very cute!

  3. Our what will be green is still covered in I'm going to enjoy your green. Love the new haircut!

  4. Love the hair! I've grown mine out - seems easier to deal with but then again - summer chores.

  5. The cut looks good on you.

    Poor Sam. I'm glad he wasn't hurt.

  6. love the new cut! now get ready for snow!

  7. I said it before and I'll say it that Sam! I'm glad he did not get hurt.....and you too of course!
    Cute cut! Now you can feel the breeze on your nrck!

  8. A bear! How scary! I love to see what's going on at the farm again! And I adore your new do! I have worn mine that way too. But am currently growing it. But with warmer weather approaching, I am about to go short!

  9. Spring had sprung around here some weeks ago and the rains we've had this week with strong winds have knocked a lot of the flowers off the trees and the temp dipped down to 58 today! But it is definitely green around Georgia! Love the new haircut!

  10. Sigh...Love the green. Our snow is gone (I think for good but you never know) and I can see bits of green coming on here, too. I am more than ready for it. xo Diana
